Potomac Pedalers offers over 1,000 group rides each year, comprehensively covering the variable terrain of our nation's capital and the surrounding countryside of Maryland and Virginia. Our ride distances are typically between 15 and 75 miles, and average speeds range from 8 mph to more than 20 mph. In other words, we have rides for cyclists of all abilities.

Please take a look around to learn more about us. And if you love riding as much as we do, welcome to our club!
