New York Cycle Club and the B-SIGs are committed to making our group rides as safe as possible. The B-SIG will emphasize safe cycling habits. We urge you to review Bicycle Safe, an informative website for cyclists.

Our sport does have risks. Each B-SIG participant must sign in before each ride. The sign-in sheets have a waiver, which is a legal agreement between each cyclist and NYCC. Please read and understand that by signing this waiver you have agreed to the waiver‘s terms.



NYCC membership is required before the B-SIG starts. Join NYCC now!


Signing up for the B-SIG means you have made a commitment to spend 10 consecutive Saturdays cycling with us this spring.

The rides are all-day affairs. You might get back early, but do not count on it. In other words, your Saturdays are spoken for when you join the B-SIG!
