Thread City Cyclers is an eclectic group of cyclists who are centered in the greater Windham-Mansfield area of northeast Connecticut. We draw membership from across Connecticut to the "Quiet Corner" of Northeast Connecticut which offers hundreds of miles of rural riding on scenic country roads as well as rail trails. TCC's membership is 170 strong and growing. What unites and sustains us is that we love to ride.
Thread City Cyclers offers organized group rides, typically on Saturday mornings during the warmer months and on warm days in the colder months. Rides typically run from about 30 miles - 60 miles. Riders can join a low-intensity group or a more advanced group, whenever they feel like it. These rides are not a competition and no riders will be left behind. Benefits include mutual support, fun, skill-building, and mutual aid.
Previously called the "Thread City Century," the Quiet Corner Bike Tour brings you some of TCC's best bike rides through Connecticut's scenic and historic Northeast corner. Four optional well-marked and fully-supported routes mostly along back-country roads, including a 100-mile spin that goes through Devil's Hopyard State Park. There's an optional 18-mile gravel loop, too. Enjoy water and treats along the way. To learn more, click below:
