Virtual Programming is available for you

Replays of virtual programs from our hiatus available here

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 events that were run during the pandemic. Since we are off hiatus, virtual programming is suspended - hopefully forever, but will come back if we need to PAUSE again.

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
