New Members Welcome!

New London Custom Bike Club invites you to join us this year for our Classic and Custom Bicycle Rides! All riders of vintage and customized bikes are welcome to join us! Bring your Orange Krate, Deluxe Stingray, Raleigh Chopper, Phantom, Collegiate, Iverson, Murray, Columbia, 3-speed, 5-speed, 10-speed, BMX, fixed-gear, Lowrider, Pre-War or any cool old bicycle!

This year, we're planning to visit the New London Waterfront Park, Captain Scott's Lobster Dock, Fort Trumbull, Ocean Beach, Pequot Avenue, the Conn College Arboretum, and a lot of places in between.

Depending on time and interest of the riders, we'll stop at other destinations for pics or take a side trip.

Join us for some special rides and events this year. We're taking a trip up to ride the Air Line Trail. We're also going over the bridge to Groton again, a really good ride everyone enjoyed last year.

We have added a beginner's Bike Workshop and a Bike Sale this year.

Call to get details or directions for any of our events. Contact Rob at (860) 912-6882. There's something for all enthusiasts, so we hope to see you this year!
