The Frederick Pedalers Bicycle Club was founded in 1972. The club is a non-profit volunteer-led organization that promotes bicycling in Frederick County by leading rides, conducting cycling classes and cycling outreach activities.
We strongly promote safe cycling. Ride participants are expected to obey all traffic laws and show courtesy to other riders and motorists. Riders younger than 16 years are welcomed when accompanied by a parent or guardian. For lots of great bicycle safety information, check out these links.
