Welcome to the Ryerson University Cycling Club!

A place for all Ryerson Cyclists to unite and go for bike rides in this great city.

About

The Ryerson Cycling Club aims to bring all Ryersonian Cyclists together on social rides, expeditions and more, across the city and beyond. Weekly rides take place starting usually from Ryerson. Club members get to take part in the discussion on future rides and club activities.

Join our mailing list and like our Facebook page for updates. If you want Brownie points for your efforts, join our Strava club too.

The club is supervised by Luis Zugasti.

Routes are mostly on paved trails/dedicated bike infrastructure. We may have to ride with cars on the road, but only at the last resort.
Favorite landmarks to visit include: The Leslie Spit, Woodbine Beach, Humber Bridge, Amos Waites Park, Scarborough Bluffs, and Evergreen Brickworks, to name a few.
Rides are generally casual and friendly. We will sometimes stop by an establishment to cool off and get to know each other.

  • a bicycle in good working condition. We don't currently offer bike rentals/discounts, but it something we are working towards in the future.
