Chesapeake Riders?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes, there are plenty of rides in and around Chesapeake. Check the Tidewater Bike Association newsletter for a good list of rides. June newsletter: https://www.tbarides.org/SpokinWord/June%202010.pdf

Funny, I thought the title was "cheapskate riders" and I was going to sign up!!

Seriously, I think you will get a more focused response in the regional forums.

Also if you are looking for others to ride with, check out the appropriate local bike club(s) and if you don't know where to start, ask at the area local bike shops.

I can't stand cheapskate riders with their crappy bikes and ugly clothes.
