Welcome to the Southern Indiana Wheelmen Bicycle Club!
Home of the Harvest Homecoming Bicycle Tour!

We hope to see YOU soon!

    SUBMIT RIDES QUICKLY AND EASILY

    NEW RIDE SUBMISSION BUTTON AVAILABLE! Send the rider list for your ride to the Statistician via e-mail using our new SUBMIT RIDES button under the SCHEDULE tab. The link will set up an e-mail to the Statistician. Be sure to include all the informaation (date, time, location, riders and distances) the Statistician needs to log your ride!




    WHEELMEN TIME ENDS OCTOBER 1ST!

    TIME TO MOVE YOUR CLOCKS FORWARD 15 MINUTES! Starting Saturday, October 1st, "Wheelman Time" will no longer be observed. There will no longer be a 15-minute "grace period" prior to a ride departing. The ride will depart at the TIME LISTED ON THE SCHEDULE. Ride leaders may still wait a few minutes for those who are behind the times (especially for the first few days), at the leader's discretion. When planning rides, keep this in mind.




    ANOTHER CYCLING 'YEAR' HAS STARTED -- AND DUES ARE DUE AGAIN!

    October 1st marks the start of the 2022-2023 SIW cycling year, so dues are due again. Dues are $12 for an individual membership, and $15 for a family membership. While you have until December 31st to renew and still have all your miles from October 1st count, why procrastinate? Renewing is as simple as clicking here and then chosing the on-line (PayPal) or the mail-in option. Do it today and avoid the pain of finding out your miles went POOF after you forgot to renew.

    PLEASE NOTE that paying for the Annual Banquet DOES NOT renew your membership. These are now two separate transactions. However, you may pay dues at the Annual Banquet via CASH or CHECK (payable to "Southern Indiana Wheelmen") ONLY. If you choose to renew at the Banquet, you may fill out the application form ahead of time to decrease your wait (and increase your social time)!




    HARVEST HOMECOMING TOUR JERSEYS ARE STILL AVAILABLE

    We still have limited quantities of our short sleeve Harvest Homecoming Jersey available at Clarksville Schwinn. See larger image here.
