Here are links to Cycling Clubs as well as some other sites that may be of interest to the bicycle enthusiast!
Orange County Wheelmen:
“OCW” tells us:
“The Orange County Wheelmen (OCW) is the most diverse and oldest bicycle club in Orange County with over 400 members. Cycling subgroups within OCW include Paramount Racing, Goat Hill (off-road cycling), and Tandem Time. The club hosts several annual events, many special activities, and numerous weekly rides.
OCW was founded in 1970. Beginning as a recreational cycling club, its focus has expanded to staging cycling events that attract hundreds of riders, to maintaining an active presence in the community through charitable donations, and to promoting safety and political advocacy through the club’s training rides and support of the Orange County Bicycle Coalition (OCBC) and the California Association of Bicycling Organizations (CABO).”
The site also provides comprehensive lists of cycling clubs not only in OC, but throughout the country as well as a detailed list of cycling events and competitions.
