Something For Everyone!
This website is maintained to keep you informed of DAC and other bicycling events in the area. There is almost always a ride going on. If you are looking for an impromptu weekend ride, check out the DAC Facebook group. Be sure to subscribe to our news letter and keep an eye on the Blog section of the site, also for details on other club and cycling-related information. The goal of the club is to encourage and assist bicyclists as they learn and grow in bicycling. It does not matter if you ride for enjoyment or sport. Following along that line, we have come up with a list of tips for bicyclists that well feel will be helpful to anyone, no matter how many years you may have ridden. We all need to be reminded from time to time about proper riding techniques and obeying the rules of the road.
