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.
All AABTS Club Rides are Cancelled
Effective March 17, 2020, AABTS will suspend all club sanctioned rides. AABTS will follow local, state and national guidelines intended to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.
We all hope this will be for a short period of time, and we’ll be sure to keep you informed as soon as the situation changes.

AABTS Club Ride Suspension
March 20, 2020
Following up on the cancellation of club rides due to Coronavirus concerns announced earlier this week, here are some additional details:
All club rides already posted on the calendar are suspended and no new rides will be added for the duration of the suspension. We believe however, many people will choose to continue riding at the same time and same places as usual. We do not want to discourage anyone from riding their bikes and missing out on all the health benefits and fun that goes along with it. If you are riding during this time, please continue to follow these general guidelines:
• Meet and ride in small groups in compliance with local, state, or national guidelines in effect at that time
• Maintain the recommended “social distancing” directive of 6 feet
• Avoid fist bumps, handshakes and direct contact with other riders, their bikes or their gear
• Wash your hands correctly and often
• Verify any places you plan on stopping at for food or water are open for business or bring enough water and food to complete your ride
• Don’t meet up with other riders if you are sick
• Keep up to date on the latest developments and directives. Visit:
Club Mileage Logging:
If you would like to have your miles added to the AABTS mileage log, you must log your own mileage. If you would typically have recorded your mileage for a ride you just completed, log it for mileage. If it’s a random ride that you would not have submitted, don’t log it. When the suspension is ended you can report the total number of miles you rode during the suspension period, and it will be added to your annual club mileage log.
We’re sure you’re aware of how quickly everything is changing regarding this outbreak. We’re doing our best to try and stay on top of all this. We will keep you updated on the status of club events as quickly as possible. In the meantime, stay safe.
