Welcome Cyclists!

Community. Adventure. Giving Back. These expressions are truly what the Narragansett Bay Wheelmen are all about.

It is in our charter to promote and encourage safe recreational cycling in Rhode Island and Southern New England, but how we go about delivering against that charter is what makes the NBW unique. Consider ...

  • We offer organized, arrowed rides every Sunday throughout the year, and welcome riders of all levels. At any pace, our rides are always an adventure in that riders see beautiful sections of Rhode Island, Eastern Connecticut, and Southeastern Massachusetts which they would rarely experience in a car.
  • The community of cyclists is very supportive of each other and the sense of camaraderie runs deep. Our website and newsletters are there to support the local cycling community with maps, cycling news and events, resources, classified ads, etc.
  • Through a variety of efforts with local and national cycling organizations, the NBW gives back through volunteerism, advocacy, and financial support. The NBW is engaged in state/federal plans affecting cyclists, bicycling safety, public awareness, bike lanes, routes, paths, commuting, bridge access, etc.
  • We have an NBW ride every Sunday, but of special note is the annual TFCE (The Flattest Century in the East). Taking place in September for over 40 years, it is one of the most treasured and best-organized events in all of cycling.

We welcome all cyclists to come and join us. Do you want to learn about our history, what we do, and how well you and your bike would fit in with the club? There is a tremendous amount of information on this website in the drop down menus. For additional information about the club, please send us an email - to info@nbwclub.org for general information, or to specific addresses listed on our Contacts page.

Looking forward to seeing you on the road!
