CycleThe Suffolk Bicycle Riders Association is Long Island's largest cycling club. Organized in 1977, we are a club made up of all ages and cycling abilities. Active members enjoy riding together year round in a relaxed and friendly group atmosphere. Our rides range from short, easy trips for beginners, to moderately-paced tours with snack breaks, to fast, challenging rides for the more competitive minded. Volunteer club members organize group rides, leaving from various locations throughout Mid-Suffolk and the East End. Their routes provide us a wonderful variety of places to tour and explore.


SBRA promotes cycling of all abilities for health, fitness and fun. Come ride with SBRA.

    During this stay-at-home time, I (Paul Miklean) tried using my bike on a trainer to get in my hour of exercise.  Unfortunately, after a few days of this, it started to get old.

    On the SBRA Forums (Message Board), under Virtual Rides (NEW 2020), Tom Gorman (TomG), had listed Discord – Something to Think About,” suggesting getting on to his Discord channel to join him, while he too was training at home.  Discord, like Zoom, FaceTime and other similar chat apps, allows for voice, video and text interactions.

    An Important Message from SBRA and New Guidelines

    June 26, 2020 Update

    The SBRA Ride Calendar was temporarily suspended for posting rides since March 19th, due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic. SBRA has been closely monitoring the situation since then. During this time we have reached out to a number of resources such as USA Cycling, the NYBC and many others to collect as much information as we can to ensure we are able to follow best practices going forward and until this world wide pandemic is safely under control. Now that Governor Cuomo has begun re-opening up New York State, SBRA will abide by all Government rules and some guidelines we have collected from the other resources.

    With that said, the SBRA Board has voted to re-open the Ride Calendar.
    Effective June 29th the Ride Calendar will be open for posting rides, with the actual rides to start on July 3rd.
    However, there will be new safety guidelines to follow and all Ride Leaders and Members must adhere to these guidelines.

    IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE YOU RIDE:
    ONLY SBRA MEMBERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO RIDE ON RIDES POSTED TO THE SBRA RIDE CALENDAR.
    In addtion, ALL SBRA MEMBERS must log onto the SBRA website, go to the page link provided below, read it completely, click on the link at the bottom, click “Yes” that you have read and agree to the guidelines and submit your answer BEFORE GOING ON ANY SBRA RIDES.
    Remember, you must be signed in and a paid SBRA Member to view ALL INFORMATION on the following linked page.
    https://www.sbraweb.org/node/34983

    These are challenging times for all of us.
    Let's please work together to restore SBRA and the Ride Calendar as quickly and SAFELY as possible.
    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
