Welcome To The World Of The Wheelmen!

We are a not-for-profit family oriented organization dedicated to the enjoyment and preservation of our bicycling heritage. Wheelmen members enjoy all kinds of bicycles and bicycling. The Wheelmen do however have a special interest in the first 100 years of cycling, 1816-1916. Members enjoy sharing what they know about bicycle history, period costumes, proper bicycle restoration, and riding skills with each other and the public.

State Captains organize group rides, parades, and other events for the members to display and demonstrate their bicycles, costumes, and skills in order to educate the public and add atmosphere to historic or festive occasions.

Our Annual Meets (Conventions) are held in different locations around North America, in locations such as Williamsburg, VA; Buffalo, NY; Golden, CO; Louisville, KY and Toronto, Canada. In 2015, we will gather at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, June 30 to July 4, 2015.  Typically, these meets include Century and pleasure rides, bicycle competitions, casual games, and swap meets. We also typically have social events which include Victorian tea and picnics.

We hope you will enjoy browsing our website. If you are interested in becoming a member, visit our
Membership web page or click here for a printable application form. You need not own an antique bicycle to be a member; just bring your interest in the history of cycling!

If you would like to arrange Wheelmen participation at your event, please visit our
State Divisions web page and contact the State Captain.
