About Our Club
Who We Are . . .
The Skagit Bicycle Club (SBC) is a not-for-profit organization centered in beautiful Skagit County, WA, about 70 miles north of Seattle and 30 miles south of the Canadian border. Our membership of approximately 250 people promotes and advocates for bicycling as well as conducting many rides and other activities throughout the year.
We operate with the following goals and objectives:
• To support health and fitness through cycling
• To support and promote frequent scheduled rides for cyclists of all abilities
• To provide bicycling safety education to the community
• To protect the rights and interests of cyclists
• To provide concise and updated information on area club events
• To meet new friends and have fun
The club was first organized in November of 1989 by local cycling enthusiasts. Click here for a short history of the early days of the club. Since those early days the club has grown and prospered. We provide group riding opportunities all year round. Rides are available for all skill levels on this website's All About Rides page and are advertised on the Events Calendar page.
Join our Weekly Rides . . .
If you are interested in riding, find a ride on our Events Calendar that suits your skills and available time, then just show up with your bike and helmet. You will be welcomed by a group of friendly people who share your interests. You don’t have to be a member to participate in a ride. We do encourage those who want to ride regularly to Join our Club because of liability insurance issues. But feel free to come out and enjoy riding with a new group of friends!

Spring Classic Ride: Each spring we hold the Spring Classic_2019 to raise funds for the local groups Who We Support. This is the premier one-day bike ride in the North Puget Sound region with beautiful scenery, quiet roads and great food. Each year we host 400 to 600 riders with a variety of skill levels for this fabulous event. A number of routes of different lengths are available, and our club's volunteers provide support with delicious food and water stations, sag vehicles, route maps, and a satisfying carb-loaded spaghetti dinner after the homestretch!
Classic Bike Show: We also sponsor a fun-filled day in the summer at the Classic Bike Show 2019 Classic Bike Show held at the Anacortes Open Streets Festival, with fun activities for the whole family to enjoy!
