We have regular rides nearly every day of the week. Often we have a faster / farther ride and a slower shorter route that regroup at various points. Most rides include a social / coffee stop. See our ride calendar for more information on each ride. Non-members are welcome to ride with DBC for one ride (per our general club insurance contract.) After that we ask that you join the Davis Bike Club to continue to ride with the club

All participants are required to ride legally and safely, and helmets are required. Anyone taking part in a DBC ride releases DBC from any liability. By riding on a DBC group ride, you acknowledge that you have read and understand this


The Davis Bike Club has been involved in randonneuring for decades and is steeped in the history of our sport and its growth in the United States. The Davis Bike Club was the largest randonneuring club to send riders to Paris Brest Paris in the early 90’s and has been instrumental in supporting the growth of randonneuring nationwide. See our section on Randonneuring for more information on upcoming events
