The Ahmadi Biking Club ("ABC") is a group of Ahmadi Muslims who like to bike. We are road cycling enthusiasts who bike each month on different trails. While at the moment we have a chapter in the mid-Atlantic states which bikes in the MD, DC, Va areas, our goal is to expand to other regions in the U.S. Our level of expertise is beginner to intermediate. Anyone interested in joining is more than welcome to fill out the contact info.
Our goal is to build a sense of community among our muslim riders. Beyond that, ABC is about providing a fun and supportive group to get us all out of bed, dressed in bike gear, on our bikes and into the amazing cycling country landscapes. Our riders keep the focus of our rides on the simple enjoyment of riding with friends. We're less about competition and more about ensuring that every morning spent on the bike is a good one.
