Queen City Bicycle Club

ABOUT

Queen City Bicycle Club (QCBC) is a group of female and non-binary people riding bikes for fun, for connection, and for empowerment.

ABOUT THE NAME: Queen City Bicycle Club was one of the original cycling clubs in Burlington. The club formed in 1896 shortly after the invention of the bicycle and, as with most social societies of the day, was exclusive to white male elite, including many of Burlington's most powerful doctors, lawyers, and businessmen.

We're reclaiming and repurposing the name Queen City Bicycle Club and making this group a mechanism that specifically empowers women and non-binary people on bikes.

HOW TO JOIN

There is no formal way to join Queen City Bicycle Club. If you're a female-identifying or non-binary person who rides bicycles, you're part of QCBC if you want to be.

The Facebook group is the main method of communication. All of our 2017 events will be posted there as well as OId Spokes Home's Eventbrite page. Members of the Facebook group should feel free to use the group to connect with one another, share related events, initiate discussions, and use the group as a resource.
