Women's Adventure Cycling Club (WACC)
The Women's Adventure Cycling Club exists to promote exploration outside the city in the woods, on trails, on gravel, off the beaten path. This group is for women and gender-nonconforming folks to support each other regardless of skill level. These rides will inspire feelings of independence, self-reliance, and a fascination for touring by bicycle. This group is an active ride club, as well as a planning resource for future trips.
WACC is on hiatus! If you are interested in a leadership role in developing this group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
If you would like to stay in the loop on ALL programming for cis & trans women and gender non-conforming & non-binary folks at the shop, including trips and workshops, please sign up below to be added to the mailing list.
The Women’s Bike Maintenance Intensive is a 3 part course designed to teach you the basics of how to take care of and fix your bike. It is designed to come after the “basic maintenance” course offered monthly, but it is not required to understand or enjoy this course.

This weekend was the inaugural overnight camping trip for the Women's Adventure Cycling Club. We met up at Grand Central Station on Saturday morning, five women with fully loaded bicycles. We decided to cut out miles of city traffic and sitting behind stifling hot exhaust pipes to start pedaling from Peekskill to our destination - Charles Fahnestock State Park.
