Note: Due to the current COVID-19 situation, Fairbanks Cycle Club has cancelled ALL GROUP RIDES through May.  We will assess the situation at the beginning of June before determining whether it is safe to resume group activities.  Below is the ride schedule for the season.  We encourage cyclists to ride the routes on their own. Remember individual riders are NOT covered by FCC’s insurance when riding these routes outside the group.  Feel free to submit photos and ride reports for posting to FCC’s blog and Facebook Page by emailing [email protected].

You can download a copy of the ride schedule HERE.
