25 Years of Memories

Jen Donahue Roubaix

Member, Jen Donahue, just took the big leap.  After 25 years of memories riding her old Cannondale hybrid, she's semi-retiring it and will start creating the next 25 years of cycling memories on her new Specialized Roubaix.  Jen, you are embarking on an entirely new cycling experience and you're going to love it!



SICCO was Great Again!

SICCO 2017
We had a fantastic group of riders show up and ride together at the SICCO event organized by the Outspokin' Wheelmen, a Youngstown, OH based bicycle club.  These guys know how to put on an event! The routes are beautiful and the support and road markings are unbeatable.  

I've participated in this event for several years now and I know of at least two times I did it by myself.  And while those years were all great too, this year was special to me because we had so many of our club members riding it together.  

Thanks again to the Outspokin' Wheelmen and Dave Hughes (pictured 4th from the left with our members). You did a great job, again, and we enjoyed being there.

Yours truly,

Bob Vano

Welcome to the Premier Bicycle Club of Western Pennsylvania

The Premier Bicycle Club was founded on November 27, 2016 in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania.  The organization began with a diverse group of community-based individuals such as lawyers, doctors, salespeople, students, business owners, healthcare professionals, and retirees, just to name a few. With more than 70 years of cycling experience combined, we understand what the cycling community wants and needs.  We are people with different backgrounds and a shared interest to provide a positive and supportive environment that encourages a healthy lifestyle for recreational cyclists of all levels to improve their skills and to participate with others in the joys of cycling.  We have a strong conviction that cycling is more enjoyable when each of us takes a comprehensive approach to a healthier lifestyle.  Find out for yourself.
