The Frederick Pedalers Bicycle Club

Cycling through Utica Covered Bridge in Frederick County, Maryland

Located next to the Appalachian mountains in central Maryland, Frederick County offers some of the best cycling in the country with rural roads, covered bridges and a variety of terrain.

The Frederick Pedalers Bicycle Club is a non-profit organization run by volunteers. We offer rides of all classes in and around the area. The Pedalers are primarily a road cycling club, but we occasionally have rides on the C&O towpath or other trails around the area. In addition, to leading rides the Pedalers offer cycling classes, conduct bicyle advocacy, and participate in the county's Adopt-a-Road program.

The Annual Club Meeting will held Saturday March 15, 2014 at the Talley Recreation Center, 121 N. Bentz Street, Frederick MD 21701. New members are welcome.


The club conducts rides throughout the year with more in the spring, summer, and autumn. They range from 15 to 100 miles or more. The schedule of rides is posted on the club calendar. The calendar is updated as rides are organized, so check back regulary to see if a ride you are intrerested in has been posted.

We strongly promote safe cycling. Ride participants are expected to wear a helmet, to obey all traffic laws, and to show courtesy to other riders and motorists. Riders younger than 18 years are welcomed when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
