Social rides should never be deterred by a little winter chill, right? We’ve got a solution with Zwift, a virtual cycling program, that supports group rides just for clubs. Over the winter months, NCC will post scheduled group rides on the NCC calendar – and you can join in on the fun from the comfort, warmth, and safety of your own home. Below you will find details and instructions on how to join these rides.

About the NCC
The Northampton Cycling Club was founded in 1999 John Frey, JD Bilodeau and Adam Myerson as an “elite development” program for local bike racers. During the period of 1999-2005, NCC’s support was instrumental in launching the careers of many well known professional cyclists such as multi-time U.S. Cylocross National Champion, Jeremy Powers, Masters Mountain Bike National Champion and renowned coach, Al Donahue.
In 2006 the NCC recast its mission to support expansion of the entire cycling community in addition to elite development. Under a new board, the NCC began to offer beginner rides, bike safety programs, Jr. cycling grants, race participation rewards and introduced a triathlon team as well as the inception of NCC’s flagship community event, BikeFest which is a community celebration of cycling for cyclists of all levels.
Our mission statement: The Northampton Cycling Club is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization whose mission is to promote fun, fitness, and health through the sports of cycling and triathlon to athletes of all ages and abilities in the Pioneer Valley.
