Our Mission

A Recreational Bicycling Club:

Promotes Activity
Inspires Healthy Lifestyles
Builds a Bicycling Community

The Pequot Cyclists Club is a non-profit, all-volunteer bicycling club centered in southeastern Connecticut (New London County).

The Pequot Cyclists inspire a healthy lifestyle through weekly bicycle rides and off-season outdoor activities.  We build a bicycling community through fitness and social activities where new members are welcomed and friendships formed.

We invite you to ride with us to see if we meet your cycling needs. Rides are open to anyone with a bicycle and wearing a helmet.  Minors must be accompanied by an adult.

Message From the President:

Dear Friends,
We’re all looking forward to putting 2020 behind us and setting our sights on a better 2021. For our club, it was an enormous pause on everything until we can safely get together again. Now that there are vaccines coming out, we hope to begin to plan activities when they become available to the general public, which at this time is projected to be May/June.
Meanwhile, I have three items to share with you all:
1.       We waived membership fees for 2020.
This was done by advancing the expiration year for all active memberships. This means that if you paid last year, or had a year left on your multi-year membership, you will not be asked to pay again this year. If your membership was already expired and you did not renew last year, then your expired status remains the same and you will get notification to renew.
NOTE:  Everyone will be asked to electronically sign the waiver again. These must be renewed every year, regardless of paying fees. If we do not get these waivers signed, we will have to go back to signing paper waivers with every ride.
2.       Donations.
As a club, we typically make donations to the East Lyme Library, Walk-Bike CT, Care & Share, and a toy drive in Norwich. This year we made all those donations, plus another to the CT Food Bank. We want you to know that we continue to support our communities, especially in these difficult times.
3.       Club Meetings and Activities.
We will continue to meet via Zoom, on the first Tuesday, every two months (Feb, Apr, June, Aug, Oct, Dec), at 7pm. Please reach out to me or any other board member if you’d like to join. We look ahead at when we might start riding again, and tentatively schedule our picnic and other club events.
Stay well and safe.
My best wishes to each of you,
Shelley Reuben
Pequot Cyclists club president
