The Arizona Bicycle Club (ABC) is an organization founded in 1964, which for over 45 years has served to improve the quality of life in Arizona by supporting bicycling. Through advocacy, education, and organized rides, tours, and events, ABC emphasizes the positive effects of the bicycle in providing transportation, recreation, sportsmanship, and good health. Affiliated with the League of American Bicyclists, the Arizona Bicycle Club is effective in advocating the use of bicycles as a non-polluting means of travel, and in protecting the rights of Arizona cyclists to safely share our roads and paths with other users, and to increase the bicycle-friendliness of our state's highways and byways.

 If you are looking for an automobile to get you and your bike to your next ride, ChapmanAZ has a great selection of new and used cars in Phoenix AZ.



Meetings of the Board of Directors of ABC are held the first Wednesday of each month at Amerischool located at 1333 W Camelback Rd. Phoenix Az 85013. The buisness meeting begins at 7pm. We hope to see you there!

With out the help of volunteers and the support of members, the club would cease to exist.  Email if you want to be part of the solution

It is with great sadness that our bike club shares with you the loss of Sylvia L. Berlatsky. Sylvia was the matriarch of the Arizona Bicycle Club. With her husband Gene, she founded ABC in 1964.  May she rest in peace. She died on May 13. She had been in and out of hospitals four times since March with infections. Last week the cause was discovered and found to be inoperable. Her service will be on Friday, May 16, at 10:30 a.m. at Sinai Mortuary, 4538 N. 16th St., Phoenix, 85016, followed by a reception at a location to be announced at the service. The family requests that no flowers be sent. Sylvia’s wish was that donations be made to City of Hope, 1500 E. Duarte Rd., Duarte, CA. 91010.

She wanted everyone to know that she loved ABC and all of its supporters. Her greatest wish is that ABC continues and that her bicycle family knows how much all of you have made her life rich and fulfilled. We feel the same way about Sylvia she enriched our lives!

You Never Bike Alone


The Movie is available to check out.  reserve movie now “YOU NEVER BIKE A LONE” was released in 2007 and is a documentary that looks at the development of vibrant bike culture in Vancouver, Canada, and how the city's self-propelled population are mobilizing to promote the bicycle as a viable for of transport. You Never Bike Alone shows how the foundations for today's burgeoning bike scene in the city was set in the early Nineties when cyclists risked arrest by cycling en masse to publicize unsafe road conditions and rides of the mid-Nineties which were sometimes characterized by arrests. Rides with mutant bike collective MC3, The Wholesome Undie (an underwear ride where cyclists protest the Molson Indy), and the World Naked Bike Ride, provide amusing and entertaining spectacle, while the film also shows how cyclists are dealing with road rage and the political struggle at municipal and provincial levels to create a more livable city.
