Most EBC Saturday rides will begin and end at  St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 5690 N Kendall Dr, Miami, FL 33156 or Ponce Middle School, 5801 Augusto Street, Miami, FL 33146.

Looking to get back into cycling? Want to bike with a group, learn group cycling safety etiquette or simply socialize and stay fit on your bike? EBC has group rides every Saturday departing
  • Early Spring, fall and winter: 7:30 AM, to be announced, usually Oct-Apr (think cooler)
  • Late Spring and summer: 7:00 AM to be announced, usually Apr-Oct (think hot)

Please arrive at least 10 minutes before ride begins. For special events, we may stagger the start times so that all groups can arrive around the same time, regardless of speed or distance.  Check the EBC calendar to verify start/end time - especially for 14-16 and beginner groups.

Ride Schedules are listed on the EBC Calendar.


Please come out to the rides prepared to take care of your own mechanical problems. (Clubmates will help with repairs but should not be relied on to lend tubes etc) Each rider should have a small saddle bag filled with the essentials: 1-2 spare tubes, tire levers, a universal tool with Allen wrenches and a chain tool, a small patch kit and replacement chain link.
Also, each rider should have a pump or CO2 cartridges.

A shout of appreciation to all our hard working ride-leaders who volunteer their time to leading the EBC rides every week and all year round! THANK YOU!

Please come prepared before you join our rides--it is part of being a smart cyclist!

  • Bring 2 water bottles--1 for water and 1 for Gatorade or a similar sports drink or a Camel Back with water and a water bottle with sports drink.
  • Make sure you have the basic tools needed to replace flat tires--2 spare tubes for the size of your wheels (650 or 700), 2 CO2 cartridges with corresponding dispenser (check if canisters are threaded or unthreaded) or pump, and tire levers. Check out:
  • Make sure your tires are inflated to the correct PSI (usually listed on the tire sidewall. Wet conditions call for lower tire pressure)
  • Make sure that your bike is in good working condition, you have visited a mechanic in the last 90 days for a tune up and you check it after and before your rides.
  • I-PODS/MP3 PLAYERS OR EAR BUDS NOT ALLOWED ON EBC LEADER-LED RIDES. We appreciate your understanding as we need your full attention (eyes and ears) for everyone’s safety!
  • Highly recommended, but not required, are gels, an energy bar, such as a Clif Bar or Power Bar, and electrolyte tablets, such as Endurolytes (made by Hammer Nutrition).
  • EAT BREAKFAST BEFORE THE RIDE!!! You burn around 750 calories per hour and only store 1500 calories in your muscles and liver. So after 2 hours, you're out of gas! Not good. Eating before and during the ride extends your riding time, so do it! Focus on carbs - that's what you burn.


The EBC Miami Spice Series: hosted once a month and is part of our usual Saturday EBC leader-led rides. Our Miami Spice Series takes us to interesting destinations or special routes designed to keep our weekly riding schedule fresh and fun. It may be short (30 miles) or it may be longer (62 miles), it may be a tour style ride and it may be a road peloton ride. The point it is we have it available to "Spice things Up" and we have our hardworking ride-leader volunteers to thank for organizing and giving us these wonderful opportunities to be on our bikes having fun together as a club!

EBC "Beginner Group Ride" @ 7:30 AM year round: Held once a month (usually the second Sunday of every month), this ride is to prepare cyclists to ride with the 14-16 MPH group on Saturdays.  One on one coaching and mentoring as well as safety and skillful tips for riding in groups will be included in this ride.  All road cyclists who can ride at least 11 MPH are welcome to join. Please RSVP to Joe Curbelo ( to let us know you will be joining.


Every Sunday, rides depart at 7:30 AM SHARP from Ponce de Leon middle school in Coral Gables (address is 5801 Augusta Street, Coral Gables FL, 33146. Park your cars parallel to US 1 in front of the school).
Or the other popular ride start location is from Miami City Hall (Coconut Grove) address is 3500 Pan American Drive.

Most riders head north to Miami Beach and further north, some up to North Miami Beach and even to Hollywood. Some split at Key Biscayne. This is a leaderless ride, so no ride releases, no leaders, just show up and ride. Experienced cyclists welcome with a pace of 17+ MPH.


Looking to ride with someone during the week? Check out EBC Facebook page for spontaneous bike rides during the week. Many members post a shout out to fellow cyclists to join them for a ride. Right now there are 2 regular groups going out every Tuesday and Thursday mornings, at around 6 AM from Granada Golf course.

These are not official EBC sanctioned rides, but spontaneous friendly bike rides organized by individuals, (which means no ride releases, just show up and ride). Please check with the person who posted the invitation for further details on time, where to meet, direction or route and speed.
