Welcome to the Florida Freewheelers website!

This is the place to go to find out who the Florida Freewheelers are and what they do.

The site has information on upcoming club rides and events.  Updates to posted rides are available when weather threatens to change the schedule.  Information on ATB and Social rides will help you ease into these types of rides.

Membership information under the Join menu outlines the goals and operation of the club.  You can easily join the club from this tab.  The annual dues are $25.

The Information section has articles of club news, information about club sponsored and club supported rides as well as a recap of Florida’s bicycle laws.  Other pages contain links to bicycle advocacy organizations, bike shops and other bike clubs.

A photo gallery is available for members to share their favorite cycling pictures with the club and you can purchase a club jersey and other apparel from our web store.  The forum (an on-line discussion group) gives you a chance to ask questions about anything cycling related and browse information on rides and services that have requested exposure on our web site.

Several  sections of the web site are for members only.  Under the Rides menu, logged in members can request the upcoming ride schedule for up to two months as well as maps for most of the rides that the club hosts.  A library of club ride maps, many with GPS files, is also accessible to members.  Existing members can renew their membership under the Join menu without re-entering all their contact information, just update anything that has changed.  A current membership list is available listing those who have chosen to share their contact information.  The Information menu has an additional tab for members that provides information on the Board of Directors.

A members-only article in the Clubs news section has a list of links to back newsletters.  The My Account menu allows members to change their profile information including their Ride Notification preferences.  Ride Notifications let members control what types of rides they are interest in receiving emails about when changes to the ride schedule occur.  Members can also change their password under this menu.  You must be a member to post in the forum or add photos to the gallery. 

You are welcome to explore all the sections of the site.  Please submit any questions you have through the Contact Us area of the Help menu.
