CYCOLOGY- THE LANCASTER RIDE – A Social Community Bicycle Ride

We at Block Bikes realize that there is a huge bicycle rider community in the Antelope Valley. Unfortunately there has not been any harmony in getting all of the riders together. This summer we hope to change all of that with our Wednesday Night CYCOLOGY – The Lancaster Ride. For the past 3 years we have put a ride together that draws between 50 & 80 riders and travels all over the Antelope Valley. This year we hope to pull over 100 riders every week. The ride does a different route every week. it is totally social and averages between 10 & 12mph covering between 20 to 25 miles in just over 2 hours. 

The CYCOLOGY ride originates from the Lancaster City Park and Ride on the south west corner of 10th Street West and Ave K-8. We gather at 7:00pm and depart promptly at 7:30pm. Helmets and lights are strongly recommended and it is a good idea to carry a spare tube and toolkit in case of unexpected happenings. With over 50 riders there is always someone to lend a hand when needed.

This year we also have incorporated The LanCoaster BLVD Experience into the CYCOLOGY ride. What this means is that on the second Wednesday Night of the month we will meet at 6:30 at Lancaster City Hall (44933 Fern Ave Lancaster – just off of Lancaster BLVD). We will start riding promptly at 7:00 and head over to the Lancaster City Park & Ride to pick up the CYCOLOGY group at 7:30. The ride will continue for a total of 15 miles and end back at Lancaster City Hall. This ride is Police Escorted and will be a slow (10mph average) social pace. This is the safest and most accountable ride that you can do. The CYCOLOGY ride will continue on to finish it’s typical 20+ mile route.

The LanCoaster BLVD Bicycle Experience will happen the second Saturday of every month from May until October. It is totally organized with set routes, police escort from the front and chase vehicles behind. Everyone is invited and we hope you’ll comer out and join us!!!
