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.

Gary Oak becomes the newest member of the elite 100,000 mile club.

Induction ceremony, September 7, 2019, at Wheeler Park
