Local Cycling Clubs

Southern Maryland has a lot to offer when it comes to group cycling.  Whether you are a novice cyclist, or an advanced competitive cyclist, you won't have to ride alone, even in the winter time.  Most of these local clubs ride all year long; and sometimes, even at night.

 Whether you are a roadie, or a mountain biker, there is a club for you.  


Oxon Hill Bicycle & Trail Club, Inc. (OHBTC) , located primarily in Prince George's County, is a non-profit, membership organization incorporated in 1972 to promote bicycling as a means of transportation, recreation, health, and physical fitness. During the summer, they have rides almost every day of the week; sometimes, having even 3 or 4 rides in the same day.  Membership is open to cyclists of all ages and abilities. OHBTC also sponsors one of the biggest regional century rides every September called the Indian Head 100.  OHBTC continues to be proactive in all facets of the local bicycling community - including assisting in funding of bicycle trails, suich as the Indian Head Rail Trail, Henson Creek Trail and the continued development of the Three Notch Trail in St. Mary's County. Check out their website for an extensive database of local routes from their cue sheet library.

Getting It In Cyclists, serving mainly the Prince George's County and Charles County cycling community, evolved in 2013 through a Meetup.com cycling group, and immediately flourished into a community of cyclists numbering over 2,300.  You can opt to become a paying member of the club, or join their rides as a guest.  All of their rides are posted through their Meetup.com webpage. Most of their rides number quite a lot of cyclists, for quite a lot of fun.  You can choose to ride easy, or ride in their more competitive group of riders. A very friendly group of cyclists, indeed. Their rides really are a lot of fun. 

Patuxent Velo (a.k.a. Pax Velo) is a USCF (road) and NORBA (mountain) bicycle racing club located in Southern Maryland. Their members primarily reside in St. Mary's and Calvert County, and are in some way affliliated with the Naval Air Station in Lexington Park, MD.  However, anyone with a desire for competitive cycling is welcome to join.  During the summer, they host a popular Tuesday night ride called the TNR (Tuesday Night Race), which is much like a real road race, with each rider being desiganted to a certain level race that they take part in. They also have Saturday rides, and night rides on Tuesdays. They also have competitive mountain bike rides; primarily at St. Mary's Lake. 

Sorry, guys, this one's for the ladies. Diva Cycling is a local women's cycling club, based out of Upper Marlboro, MD. Sporting one of coolest jerseys around, these ladies vary from novice to advanced cyclists, with rides for everyone. They offer advice on how to change a flat tire on the road, what to wear, and how to ride in a group, safely.  A truly magnificent group of ladies who are in it for the fun and the exercise, to stay in shape and look great. Highly recommended.  Check them out on Meetup.com.
Solomon's Island Cycling Club, located, where else, but Solmon's Island, MD, is another newcomer to the local cycling club lineup.  Since their inception, they have quickly grown to an exciting and devout group of cyclists ranging from roadie to mountain biker, and in between. Most group rides take place in lower Calvert County, MD, including Solomon's Island and Prince Frederick.  They also do cycling trips for several days outside the realms of Southern Maryland; such as Pensylvania and Western Maryland. They have novice as well as advanced club rides.  They even do trainer nights during the winter, where you bring your bike, your trainer, and everyone rides together, indoors, following a specific workout - much like a spin class, but using your actual bike.  Lot's of fun. Check them out! 

MORE (The Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts), Inc. is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization representing thousands of area mountain bikers. Founded in 1992, MORE maintains more than 400 miles of natural-surface trails in 41 state and county parks throughout the region.
