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.
