Wheeling Wheelmen
  • Welcome To the Wheeling Wheelmen.

    The Wheeling Wheelmen Bicycle Club founded by Phyllis Harmon, had its first meeting on April 26, 1970 with over 100 members in attendance. Since that time, the club has grown to almost 300 men and women serving the Northwest Chicagoland area with organized rides, social outings, informative meetings, bicycle advocacy, and a lot of friendship.

  • In Memory of Phyllis Harmon
    Founder of the Wheeling Wheelmen

    1916 to 2016

    Phyllis was an incredible person who did so much for the sport and recreation of bicycle riding. While she passed away at 99 years young, she will always be remembered by the cycling community. Among other accomplishments, she single handedly ran the League of American Wheelmen during the mid 20th century which became the League of American Bicyclists. She made sure that every league member fighting in World War II received a copy of the League's newsletter. Phyllis always stressed good and safe riding for all ages and to back this up rode 3363 miles from Los Angeles to Boston at 73 years old. She never settled for complacency by riding her first 100 mile ride in the 1930's and her last in 1999 at the age of 83. Phyllis led seven tours of New Zealand and was inducted U.S. Bicycling Hall Of Fame for her tremendous contribution to the sport of cycling.

  • 2016 Club Ride Schedule by Month

  • Wheeling Wheelmen club rides are done in a 'ride at your own pace' format. Cue sheets are provided so that, depending on who shows up, riders of similar riding ability can get together and ride at a pace that works best for them.

    Most rides will have anywhere from 5 to 25 riders. Almost all rides have rest stops where riders can re-group if they want.

    Club rides leave at the posted time. Check the ride start times and arrive early enough to set up your bike, sign in, get your cue sheet and meet the other riders. Club rides are a good way to improve your fitness and riding skills.

    The 2016 ride schedule, from March 19th to October 30th, will have almost 300 rides this season!

    There are short and long mileage options every weekend as well as a variety of weekday and evening rides.
