Do you want to ...

  • Learn how to ride safely in a group?
  • Learn good bike-handling skills?
  • Improve your strength, speed and stamina?
  • Get to know some great NYCC routes?
  • Learn how to work as a team to make any ride easier and more enjoyable?
  • Learn the best places to go for a cold beverage after a ride?

If you're answering yes to a lot of these questions, you'll love the B-SIG 10-week Progressive Training & Cycling Skills series for 2014!

The B-SIG is divided into 3 different pace levels:

B-16 pace − progresses from a 40-mile ride at 14 mph on the first ride, to a 70-mile ride (with an option to do 100 miles) at 16 mph by early May.

B-17 pace − progresses from a 45-mile ride at 15 mph on the first ride, to a 95-mile ride (with an option to do 105 miles) at 17 mph by early May.

B-18 pace − progresses from a 45-mile ride at 16 mph on the first ride, to a 95-mile ride (with an option to do 105 miles) at 18 mph by early May.

When you sign up for the B-SIG you do not choose your pace level. Your leaders will assign you to an appropriate level based on a 4-lap ride around Central Park on week 1.

The New York Cycle Club and the B-SIG 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.


The B-SIG begins on Saturday, March 1 and continues through Saturday, May 3. The March 1 meeting will consist of 4 laps around Central Park followed by an indoor orientation session. The actual group rides will take place over the next 9 weeks. If a Saturday ride needs to be postponed due to weather, the ride will be made up on Sunday.


Signing up for the B-SIG means you have made a commitment to spend 10 consecutive Saturdays cycling with us this spring. You are not permitted to miss more than 2 of the group rides. In addition, you cannot miss more than 1 of the first 2 group rides.

Will the B-SIG be challenging?
It sure will!

Will the B-SIG teach me really good cycling skills?

Will the B-SIG be fun, friendly and rewarding?
You can count on it!

Towards the end of the B-SIG, the leaders will make suggestions on organizing and leading club rides. While the SIG is free, we expect that each participant will give back to the club, preferably by leading a ride or by volunteering for a club activity after the SIG.
