About Athens Bicycle Club

Athens Bicycle Club formed in 1971. Over the years, ABC members have been instrumental leaders in the many developments that make Southeastern Ohio a great place for bicycling.

We are proud to live in a place that is wonderful for biking. Please consider joining ABC and becoming part of a group of local cyclists who are known for rolling up their sleeves and making things happen. In addition to supporting the types of activities and advocacy described above, club dues help pay for club insurance, the purchase and maintenance of trail-building tools, and special projects including the Southeast Ohio Bicycle Map.
