The Carolina Tarwheels Bicycle Club
A group of bicycle enthusiasts who organize social rides in Orange, Durham, Wake, Alamance, and Chatham counties of North Carolina. We promote the fun and challenge of cycling and advocate for cycling safety and bike-friendly policies in our communities. The Tarwheels are affiliated with the League of American Bicyclists (LAB).
