Brief Description

The White Clay Bicycle Club (WCBC) was established in 1973 and currently consists of approximately 300 cyclists. We have a rich history of connecting to the community to promote safe, recreational bicycling activities. The Club offers cyclists multiple opportunities to engage, develop and grow in the sport of cycling as well as advocating bicyclists’ rights on a local, state and national levels. 

Our Club members come in all shapes, sizes and abilities with one very important factor in common—a love of cycling! We are daily riders and commuters, weekend and occasional riders and even non-riders. We exist to promote cycling in the Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania tri-state area with the majority of our members residing in Delaware’s New Castle County. What keeps us all going is our enthusiasm for health, camaraderie, love of the outdoors and desire to learn and share knowledge about our sport.

About The Club

We ride year-round with peak season being April through October. Scheduled rides are offered on weekends, weekdays and evenings during peak season and are posted on our Ride Calendar. Rides may range from 10 to 100 miles in distance and vary in terrain and speed. Scheduled rides have a Ride Leader who assures no one is left behind. New riders are always welcome; and every attempt is made to accommodate all riding levels.

Other Activities

In addition to our scheduled rides, the club also hosts 4 fully supported, organized ride events through the cycling season: Icicle Metric Century (April), Delaware Doublecross Metric Century (June), Shorefire Century (August) and Savage Century (October). This year, we will also hold our Summer Club Picnic and Autumn Volunteer Appreciation Brunch.
