ImageQuincy Bicycle Club Spring Kick Off Scheduled for May 16!

May is National Bike Month and the Quincy Bicycle Club invites the entire community to our Spring Kick-Off Meeting! Join us at Madison Davis Bicycle Shop at 8th and Jefferson on Thursday, May 16.  We’ll have light snacks starting at 5:30 and the meeting officially begins at 6 pm. 

At 6:30, we will have a short program by Madison Davis’s Trek Certified mechanic Ryan Hildebrand.  Ryan will discuss general bike maintenance including tire changing and chain lubrication and replacement.

Don’t forget to ride your bike to this kick-off, because at the conclusion of the meeting, we will have a fun, social ride to welcome new members!

* SPECIAL NOTE: If you’re not riding your bike to the meeting, please bring a chair!  We won’t have too many chairs at the new shop! 

Membership in the Quincy Bicycle Club is $10 a year for singles and $17 for families.  There are club rides nearly every day of the week to participate in and several special events every year.

Beginners and families are WELCOME!  You don’t have to have a fancy bike to participate; just bring yourself and a helmet and come to try our beginner rides!
