The Coastal Cruisers Bicycle Club has been in existence for over thirty years and enjoys a membership today of well over the 500 mark. Our rides generally extend throughout Sarasota and Charlotte Counties, to include the communities of Venice, Sarasota, North Port, Port Charlotte, Rotonda, Englewood, Nokomis, Punta Gorda and Boca Grande. Even with current expanding population and development of the area, we are fortunate to find back roads and bikeways which offer viable riding routes and wonderful Florida views.

Our regularly scheduled rides and activities meet the wide riding interests and abilities of members. Year round we celebrate the joy of bicycling while safety is a priority and fitness is a motivator. Fun and friendship are prized.

Monthly Meetings are held during the "Season" and include lively presentations. Socials and Events are held throughout the year -- the "Pasta Bash," Withlacoochee Trail Ride, Holiday Party, Memorial Ride, Century Ride, Sunset Social, and occasional cafe stops either midway or after rides. Participating bike shops in the area offer a 10% discount on parts and accessories to club members.

The Pasta Bash Ride is held annually in November for club members.  Routes vary from 63 miles, to 32 miles, to a 15 mile ride. This event includes a social get-together, a picnic style boxed lunch and live music, door prizes, Tee-shirt, SAG support, and a well-stocked rest stop.

The Withlacoochee State Trail is a 46-mile long Rails-to-Trails project located in scenic Inverness, Florida. Club members enjoy two days of riding and camaraderie and many achieve personal best distances.

The Memorial Ride is traditionally held early in the calendar year. It honors our Club's deceased members and celebrates what they would wish us to do - ride, eat, socialize, and have fun.
