There are two main groups which meet near Harford Community College and ride towards Susquehanna State Park.
Harford Velo (http://www.harfordvelo.org/)
HVCC is the oldest cycling club in Harford County, MD. Our mission is to promote active participation in all forms of cycling, to encourage the safe use of bicycles for recreation and transportation, and to promote educational and social functions for the benefit of club members and others.
Harford Velo rides range from sponsored professionals to beginners and meet often for each category. While they support a nice range, they have a higher expectation for beginners and start rides at a fair rate.
Chesapeake Spokes (http://www.chesapeakespokes.org/)
This club fairly new and is very welcoming to new riders and supports a variety of fun rides. Chesapeake Spokes generally meets at the Food Lion parking lot off Route 22, a block away from Harford County Community College.
Chesapeake Spokes is very friendly for hobby cyclists and support Category 4 rides for those seeking a casual introduction ride. The cyclists are incredibly helpful and will help you mature into an experienced cyclist. They also support the occasional mountain biking rides.
Harford County Bike Shops
Chesapeake Cycling (http://goo.gl/maps/6WRK) located in downtown Bel Air. Small shop with a good variety. If they don’t have what you need, they are happy to order it for you.
Performance Cycling (http://goo.gl/maps/joUp): If you have interest in purchasing a bike, I’d recommend this shop. It is the largest in the nearby area, with a fantastic selection.
