Summer Ride Start Times

Sunday rides for July and August from Deerfield Park begin at 8:00 AM to avoid the heat.

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.
