No Rides. But Virtual Programming is available for you

We are busy developing virtual events for you to enjoy from the comfort of your home

It is very clear that this pandemic is, unfortunately, not a "short" thing. This too will pass, but we have no clue when.

As we have written elsewhere about the 5BBC - we are a community.

Being New York's friendliest bike club, while we can't ride the way we typically do, we will commune in ways that respect social distancing guidelines but let us come together and enjoy each other's friendship, company, bike savvy and other things we discover we might like to do together - like dancing! 

Here are a list of current and upcoming events planned.

Most of them require signing up on Eventbrite and the Zoom link will be sent to you shortly before the actual event. Please do not leave it to the last minute to sign up as you may not receive the link.

Dance parties are open with no registration - invite your friends - but the links will be posted here closer to the actual dance.

Check back here for details. Soon we will post links to videos of past events here too.

Stay healthy. Stay strong and please, stay connected.

If you have any ideas for other virtual events - perhaps a skill or talent you'd like to share with members of the club - please e-mail
