Established in 1973, the White Clay Bicycle Club (WCBC) consists of over 400 cyclists from Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania. We come in all shapes and sizes, young and old, and all abilities with one very important factor in common—a love of cycling! We are “roadies” and tourists, racers, mountain and tandem bikers, commuters and daily riders, weekend and occasional riders, and even non-riders. What keeps all of us going is our enthusiasm for health, camaraderie, the love of the outdoors and a desire to learn more about ourselves and our sport.
WCBC and its subgroups—First State Velo Sport and Toucans—are affiliated with the League of American Bicyclists, Adventure Cycling Association and United States Cycling Federation.
