When/Where is your next ride?

SIW offers rides throughout the year, and you can often find up to 4 rides per day with varying distances and difficulty.

Find a ride that suits your riding needs (distance, speed, hills, etc.) by viewing our ride schedules. These are published every month.

If you have any questions at all - feel free to contact the ride captain for each ride. They will be more than happy to give you directions or any other information you may need.

What do I need to bring?

Bring a bike in good working order and always wear a helmet - they are required on all SIW rides.

Other items you may want include cycling gloves, a water (sport drink) bottle, sunglasses, etc. After a few rides you will discover which cycling extras are important for you to have. Talk to other riders and feel free to ask a lot of questions!

I'm not very fast - will I get left behind?

Have no fear! If you haven't been on a bike for a while or you are just looking for a relaxed pace and distance, be sure to check out our "Slowspokes" schedules: great rides and great people. Seriously, they will never leave you behind!

If you're looking to be a bit more assertive, a "Wheelmen" ride will offer you the opportunity to go farther and faster. Again, check with the ride captain if you're not sure the ride is right for you. On Wheelmen rides marked "Medium" support, the Ride Captains will generally ride with the slowest and/or new riders.

Our most well-attended ride is the Silver Creek High School, Sunday morning 10:00 in Sellersburg. There is always a great turnout and someone will always be going "your speed." Make this your first ride if you're not quite sure about your abilities.

SIW offers cyclists everything from leisurly touring to fast workouts. Many members are also involved in long distance riding, mountain biking, gravel riding, and even road racing.
