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.

Note: SCUM Rides used to be an official FCC ride, but they have morphed into an informal meet-up group. We would love to have them be an official ride again. Anyone who wants to be a leader or co-leader (set the schedule, lead the rides, make sure everyone is an FCC member) please contact

  • Who: All are welcome. (Especially if they bring zucchini bread!)
