Welcome to the Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society
The Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society has been active in Ann Arbor and the surrounding communities for over forty years. We organize numerous rides each week for cyclists of many different skill levels and interests.
Our signature event is the long running "One Helluva Ride" which takes place each year in July. We also support, and many of our members are active in, numerous cycling advocacy, safety, and charitable groups throughout the greater Ann Arbor area.
Look at the rest of our site for rider guidelines and calendars, and bicycle news in general. Hope to see you at one of our rides soon.
Club Rides and Mileage Update, July 2020
Back in March, we did not expect the Covid19 pandemic to impact our club’s functions so dramatically. We do not believe the current conditions will change soon, so we have made the decision to continue the suspension of all club rides for the remainder of this year.
If you would like to have your miles added to the AABTS mileage log for 2020, you must keep track of the miles you have ridden. You can record any ride you have completed, solo or with others, but it must be outdoors (no indoor trainer rides). At the end of the year you will be asked to send one mileage number for rides you have completed since March 17, 2020. This number will then be added to your existing 2020 mileage.
As always, we want to encourage people to get outside and ride their bikes. Please do so in a safe responsible way.
