The Carolina Tarwheels Bicycle Club is an incorporated 501 (c) (4) not for profit organization welcoming all cyclists who enjoy the sport as well as spending time with and meeting great folks who share the same passion. Our goals are to offer weekly organized bike rides for all levels of riders, to promote safe cycling, to provide bi-monthly club meetings with topics relevant to cycling, and to put on one of the best organized rides in the area, our annual Bikefest ride in Hillsborough. The money raised from Bikefest is donated to organizations who support cycling through programs or through donations of bikes to children.
Our members also serve on various cycling advocacy committees in our community acting as a voice for cyclists as we work to integrate our sport safely with pedestrians and motorists.
Through our funding raising efforts we have also provided bike racks at some of the area’s most popular rest stops including Maple View Ice Cream Store and the Saxapahaw General Store.
We welcome new members and encourage individuals to join our organization, enjoy our rides and social activities while promoting our sport and supporting our community.
