North Shore Cyclists (NSC) is a recreational bike club that draws its membership primarily from the North Shore area of Massachusetts. Most of our bike rides are routed along the back roads and shorelines north of Boston. 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.
