St. Louis Cycling Club:
The oldest continuously running cycling club in the country, formed in 1887.
“The object of this Club shall be the promotion of all kinds of Cycling, advancement and protection of the interests, rights, and privileges of members of the Club and others engaged in the sport, the increase of interest in cycling and the spread of information in relation thereto among the public generally”.
With the club’s official slogan being “Headquarters in the Saddle”, it’s a given that the original founders understood that life is just better from the perch of a bicycle. And with that slogan in mind, we want to invite cyclists of every level, and every category to join the St. Louis Cycling Club.
With as rich of a history as the St. Louis Cycling Club has, we want to preserve as much of its core values as we can, while also pushing it to new heights. At the very core of any club, are the members themselves, and our Club gains in strength and influence with each and every member. So we are looking for riders of every ability, every category, and of every facet of the sport, to help us grow in numbers, help us with advocacy, and help us continue to provide guidance and mentor new riders. Within the Club structure, we also have sub-groups with very specific purposes and goals, two of those being Billy Goat/Trek Racing Team, and B.A.B.E.S.
We want to invite you to join the club, membership is $60 per year(can split to a monthly rate should you join mid-year), which will provide you with deep discounts on club clothing, great discounts on bicycles and even better deals on parts, accessories*(a few exceptions), and clothing at Billy Goat Bicycle Company. The shop will provide members with great selection, great products, great service, and a great experience. Billy Goat Bicycle Company is the new home for the Club, and we will provide our members and our customers a look into the rich history of the St. Louis Cycling Club. Billy Goat will also work diligently with Manufacturers, Vendors, and Suppliers to always be able to provide club members with the best deals on the best products.
