Come And Ride With Us!

 

Cream City Cycle Club  is a Milwaukee-based  bike club with more than 130 active members. CCCC is locally renowned for our schedule of weekly Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday group rides, many overnight camping rides, and our annual Century Classic ride.

 

CCCC rides are suitable for beginning recreational riders and veteran long distance riders alike. Our rides start from convenient Milwaukee metro locations as well as more rural ride starts, and range from 20 miles to 100+ distances during the season.

CCCC works with the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin and is a member of the League of American Bicyclists. We support local bicycling advocacy and cycling-oriented charitable organizations.

Benefits of membership:
  • participate in scenic and challenging bike routes
  • gain proficiency as a cyclist
  • friendship and camaraderie
  • safety and support on longer rides
  • news of upcoming cycling events and bicycling lore
  • discounts at local bike shops




New Event Calendar Changes For The 2017 Ride Season!

 

The 2017 ride season brings some changes to the CCCC Events Calendar. There is a new ride color code for upcoming rides. Previously, RED = NO Ride Leader, GREEN = at least one ride leader assigned. For 2017, RED = No Ride Leader(s), YELLOW = one Ride Leader, but no Ride Leader for other route(s). GREEN = Ride Leaders for all routes are assigned. There is a LEGEND button at the upper right of the Calendar page that opens to show all the color codes used on the Calendar.

CCCC Ride policy is that if there is a ride route without a Ride Leader prior to the ride date, the leaderless route will be cancelled, and route with Ride Leader will continue as the only sanctioned, official CCCC ride that day. The leaderless route to be cancelled may be the long route or the short route, based on the Ride Leader's route choice. Therefore it is important for club members to monitor the Ride Calendar and check for future YELLOW ride dates, and volunteer as Ride Leaders for the open routes. This will promote CCCC weekend rides that will be pleasant and successful experiences for all club members.

CCCC Camping Rides

 

PREREGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL RIDES IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE YOUR TENT SPACE.

When space is limited, priority will be given to club members up to 2 weeks before the trip. So, don’t be disappointed. Call the trip leader in advance.

 

The cost for the camp site will be $5 per person per night for all club members.  Non members of Cream City, Bay View, News Pedalers, or Spring City Cycle clubs will be charged an extra $5 per night for camping. A two night minimum charge will be required, except for the Self-contained riders. 

Please contact Mark Steckhahn for more information. Mark Steckhahn 414-453-6872 or steck58@att.net.


 

Ride types

Looped: Also known as car camping. Drive a car or carpool to the chosen campground and put up your tent for the weekend. All Cream City rides start at the campground and loop back to the start.

Self-contained:Carry all your gear with you on the ride to the campground. Everything, clothing, tent, etc. you need for yourself is contained on your bike. (No sags here)
