Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society has a ride for everyone.

Congratulations on surviving winter with your wits (more or less) intact; now it’s time to have some fun.

If you’re looking for a great ride in good company check out one of the Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society’s weekly rides or special events. They have breakfast rides, brunch rides, Bike & Brew, Dog & Suds…. even several rides that don’t (overtly) revolve around food.

The club holds organized rides suited to all skill levels all over Washtenaw and western Wayne County. Non-members are welcome on rides (Think of it as a big network of friends who hang out together on bikes.)

Aberdeen Bike & Outdoors serves as the launching point for several AABTS weekly rides, and AABTS members enjoy discounts on gear and bikes at Aberdeen. Hell, we’re so sold on the AABTS that we’ll add a club membership and pay your dues ($20) for the first year if you buy a carbon road bike before April 26.

The AABTS has been all about safe, recreational cycling since its inception back in 1976, and its annual One Helluva Ride draws about 2,000 cyclists from Michigan, surrounding states and Canada for a tour of rural Washtenaw, Livingston, Ingham and Jackson counties on the second Saturday in July.
