North Shore Cyclists (NSC) is a recreational bike club that draws its membership primarily from the North Shore area of Massachusetts. Our bike rides are routed along the back roads and shorelines north of Boston. Over 400 members span the spectrum from beginning cyclists who join to learn more about the sport to advanced cyclists who participate to be challenged by fast paceline riding. Whether you enjoy participating in group rides or simply like to follow our arrowed rides with a few friends, join the club and enjoy the camaraderie at North Shore Cyclists.
Regardless of skill level, NSC members share the desire to have fun, to cycle safely, and to meet other people who enjoy cycling as much as they do. Bring a friend if you wish, because all rides are open to the public. We encourage you to become a member of NSC.
In addition to our scheduled recurring (Monday through Saturday) and Sunday rides, the club holds cookouts, weekend excursions, and the Blazing Saddles Century in August. Most NSC rides split into groups determined by the speed of the cyclists. Some members enjoy riding alone or with a friend but join the club for the camaraderie. The NSC road ride season runs from April through October, plus, in the winter, a Sunday road ride from Georgetown. There's also mountain biking beginning in November and continuing untill snow covers the ground.
Participants at NSC rides must obey Massachusetts Bicycle Law.
