Welcome & Announcements
WELCOME TO ECHELON RIDERS CLUB. CELEBRATING OVER TEN YEARS. Echelon Riders Club has over 650 women and men members in the San Francisco Bay Area who enjoy road cycling in groups for safety, training, motivation, life-long fitness, comraderie and above all, fun. We are not a racing club. You do not have to be a member to join our rides which are now featured in the Marin Independent Journal's weekly "Outdoor Calendar" on Mondays, Page B2.
NEW RIDERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME! Membership is free and club rides are free. To join, just click on the "Contact Us" Tab above and fill out some brief information about yourself, which we keep strictly private. It is that easy! There are no dues to pay, no contracts to sign, only the usual riding waiver. Opt out at any time by sending us an "unsubscribe" email.
We hope you will join us on a club ride soon.

We organize free weekly training rides year round to suit the season with our experienced ride leaders to maximize your safety. Invite family and friends to join you! Children 12 to 17 OK, if acompanied by an adult. Nearly all of our rides are "no drop" rides, meaning you will not be left behind and we welcome adult riders of all ages and abilities. Each year we target over 10 major rides for our members to enjoy riding the various distances offered at each event. See the "Calendar" and "Major Rides" Tabs above. We also offer trips to the Tour of California and organize visits to other major cycling events such as the Tour de France, where members can ride the actual courses, often mere hours ahead of the professional peloton in addition to "celebrity" rides, free product demo days and other social events throughout the year. See the "Calendar" Tab above.
