SCUM Rides

Sounds bad, but the rides are fun. A clean group of well-attired men (who self-describe as “elderly and harmless”). Women have been known to participate and are not discouraged. You’ll have to attend a SCUM ride to find out where the name “SCUM” comes from. Spoiler: It’s not as scary as it sounds.

  • Who: All are welcome. (Especially if they bring zucchini bread!) Fairbanks Cycle Club membership required.
  • What: Road rides. Usually last between 1.5 and 2 hours. Pace is 15-18mph.
  • When: Sundays (10am start) and Wednesdays (5pm start)
  • Where: Meet at the Patty Center parking lot on the University of Alaska campus, unless otherwise noted. (Look for the bikes.) Ride schedule below (though the ride route may change, depending upon who shows up).
  • Contact: Greg Kahoe: [email protected]; (907) 371-9028 text or call is ok.
  • End of season note: There will certainly be riders who push the boundaries of sanity and comfort to keep riding road bikes as long as possible. Meeting times may revert to a later start (ie 11a), and Wed rides may be canceled as summer draws to a close. Contact Greg for ride updates.
