Baltimore Metro Wheelers Cycling Club: Welcome

Sunday, January 18

 

 

 

Welcome to the Baltimore Metro Wheelers Cycling Club (BMWCC)! 

January 18, 2015 - OUR WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNDERGOING RECONSTRUCTION...CHECK BACK LATER PLEASE.  

SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

 

The BMWCC traces its roots to a loosely organized group of cyclists, who at one point carried the name "The Baltimore Peloton", that have ridden out of Deer Park Middle School in Randallstown, MD for nearly 30 years. The decision to formalize as a club came to fruition in April of 2008 at the annual Major Taylor Cycling Summit in Townsend, Tennessee.

The National Brotherhood of Cyclists (NBC) was founded on March 29th 2008 by a group of grass roots cycling clubs from around the country made up of African American Cyclists. This group felt a national organization was needed to: promote a love of cycling, increase the sports diversity and decrease the health disparities that effect their community and other communities around the country by bring attention to the health benefits of cycling . The NBC is an association of affiliate cycling clubs.
