Welcome

Welcome to BCI's Website. The Bicycle Club of Irvine is a recreational and social cycling club for men and women of all ages and skill levels. Please come and check out our rides and events, read about our history, becoming a member, and find out what's new at BCI.
You do not have to become a member before riding with us. Just come and see if the club is a good fit for you, and you can then become a member if you feel a connection. We are a very social club and think you will enjoy the friendliness and opportunity to spend time with new-made friends. We ask you to wear a helmet and when you arrive at the park, sign in on the guest sign-in sheet. Route information is available to the left side of this page.

Sat Apr 26, 2014 9:00 AM - Remote Whittier Ride

There will be 2 routes. One will be very hilly and one not so hilly. The ride is as beautiful and much like the Cool Breeze but it is only 30 minutes from Deerfield. The ride takes us through the Whittier Hills and the surrounding area. There are numerous panoramic views of the San Gabriel, San Bernardino and Santa Ana Mountains, downtown LA as well as views of the ocean and Catalina. It is a ride not to be missed! If it rains, the ride is cancelled and will be rescheduled.
