Welcome!

We are the Chesapeakes Spokes Club—a group of cyclists dedicated to the joys of riding the roads and woodlands of Harford County, Maryland and surrounding areas.  We are passionate about safety, about bicycling education for both ourselves and the greater community, but most of all, about the spirit of camaraderie that we’ve built within our organization of over the course of our ten years together.

We hope you enjoy your visit!  If you are interested in joining us on our many group rides, check out our Calendar, and perhaps become a member of this wonderful club yourself!

Please note that our new website is still a work in progress.  We’re working hard to make it the best experience possible for our members and visitors.

About Us

In 2009, a women’s specific cycling club known as Chesapeake Spokes Women was started by Missie and Carl Wakefield. The core values of the club were to encourage both beginning women cyclists and more experience riders to network. Within the first year, male riders began to show up due to the camaraderie and social aspect of the club. It was pretty much easy to see that the club’s values, social aspect and support network was well received in the cycling community. In 2010, we re-organized as Chesapeake Spokes and quickly grew over 100 cyclists. During our first year, we supported the Greg Krause Helmet Fund, Bike to Work Day, Youth Rides and bike rodeos, etc. It was a busy first year and we are now expanding our rides to include both faster and longer rides.

All levels of types of riders are welcome to join our club. You will find a friendly atmosphere and fellow cyclists that are willing to lend a hand when needed. Fast, slow, long, short, early, late, hot or cold, you can find a ride to fit your style!
