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.

    Winter Bicycling - Tips to get you safely through the winter

    Winter Bicycling                       
    Paul Miklean, SBRA Education and Safety Director Elect

    Years ago, I led an SBRA ride in the winter.  The wind chill was either in the high teens or low twenties and there were a total or 4 of us on the ride.  One of the riders said to me, “I think you broke a record for the coldest SBRA ride ever.” 

    Coming from a skiing background, high teens or low twenty wind chill is the standard temperature to ski.   What is needed is wearing the right clothing.  As I’ve skied in temperatures well below zero, my thinking was, if I can ski comfortably with the right clothing, why not wear the right clothes and bike?

    At first it might seem a daunting activity, bundling yourself up to ride through winter cold, but in Long Island, bicycling can be a 4-season sport allowing for winter exercising, heart pumping, blood flowing and calorie burning. 

    MTB season is approaching, do you have your DEC Permit?

    We're heading into another MTB, hiking, cross country ski and snow shoe season.
    With that some of the trails we use require the NY State Land Access Permits. The permits are free and are good for three years. For those who don't have the permit can apply online. It's simple and is ready to print immediately.
