Our Mission

Our mission is to foster a safe and welcoming bike community through group rides, cycling events, and through collaboration with our town government and local businesses and organizations. In 2018, we worked towards these goals by introducing new bike racks at Endicott Station, advocating for cycling in future town improvement projects, and through various rides we hosted for all ages and abilities.

About Us

1894

Established

1894

During the late 1800's the popularity of cycling increased exponentially and Massachusetts was at the center of the craze. The Boston Cycle Club was the first of its kind in the nation and it soon became associated with the League of American Wheelmen, a national organization established in 1880. By 1892, the craze had officially spread to Dedham. That year, the original Dedham Cycle Club was established and their inaugural ride attracted 8,000 riders on Patriot's Day of that year.

2018

Re-established

2018

In 2018, the Dedham Cycle Club was restarted by a group of local residents. Today our club organizes fun group rides for all ages & skill levels and supports events and activities that encourage cycling. On our rides, safety comes first; no one gets left out or left behind. We hope that our organization will help to promote a healthy and active lifestyle and create awareness about the benefits of cycling.
