WELCOME to the Channel Islands Bicycle Club (CIBike), a recreational bike club founded in 1990 by Ed & Udas Young to bring together smart, safe, good-looking and passionate cycling buddies.
We have great, year-round riding out of Ventura (west county) and Moorpark (east county) with varying terrain and scenery along the coast and in the nearby hills. With over three hundred & ten members of all abilities, this club is a great place to learn about cycling from some of the most experienced riders in Ventura County. You can be our guest on any ride; please check out our Club Ride Calendar. You may also attend our monthly meeting (date/time on ride calendar) where experts on various topics share their knowledge. More information on our Activities page.
We host the Cool Breeze Century each August. Since 1993, this event has grown to over 1000 riders. Funds raised through the Cool Breeze allow CIBike promote bicycling for recreation, health, commuting, and sport through financial support of bike projects, infrastructure, and national organizations that advocate for biking.
CIBike is recognized as an advocate for improved infrastructure for biking, such as providing matching funds for the beautiful bike bridge on the Ventura River bike path. CIBike members are involved in local advocacy; everything from participating in County and City planning, transportation advisory boards, bike safety training (including in local schools) and picking up trash on local bike paths.
Ride with us and see what a great experience it can be! You’ll have fun, reduce your carbon footprint, your car expenses, your stress and your waistline by riding your bike. So, dust it off, pump the tires, lube the chain, and get yourself off the couch for some heart-healthy Fun. See us in action in our Gallery and on Facebook!
