Smoky Mountain Wheelmen Bicycle Club

promoting cycling since 1973

Learn More

In 1973, five individuals riding on a regular basis together started a bicycle club for the purpose of sharing their rides with others. Over the years, many riders have passed through the Wheelmen Club. We are a recreational road bike cycling club that host rides year round. Our club is a great place to discover all types of riding experiences, listen to great speakers at our monthly meeting, and get involved in promoting cycling within our community. You will discover parts of the area you may have never ridden before while making friendships that you will value for a lifetime.
