PFW has eliminated our special coronavirus rules in our board meeting of June 7, 2021. Leaders can set their own rules, and should announce any special rules in their ride listings. The Club suggests riders continue to carry masks.
We offer over 800 rides annually
for cyclists at all levels, and have over 625 routes available in the PFW Route Library
. Feel free to check our ride calendar to review current ride listings. Nonmembers are invited to join our rides, but insurance requirements allow one ride before joining the club. Annual membership fees are $35 for individuals and $50 for families. Note that helmets are required and your bike must be in good working condition. Members also are invited to attend several social events that occur throughout the year, and have access to the PFW Route Library (email the PFW Webguy
if you are a member who would like the invitation). About the Princeton Free Wheelers
Club members please note: there are listed rides and sections of the site that are only visible if you are LOGGED IN as a CLUB MEMBER.
