Join us!

We’re an active road cycling club in the Abilene, Texas area, registered as a club with USA Cycling. Our goals are to promote cycling and cycling safety awareness in our area, provide a resource for great riding, to help each other improve our skills, and most of all, to have a lot of fun!

If you’re wondering about the name, Steamboat Mountain is east of Buffalo Gap in the Callahan Divide, a feature that runs through several counties in West Central Texas. It is the northernmost part of the Hill Country. Steamboat provides the most challenging climbs around here. Dues are $35 per year. Join our Strava group for notices about our regular rides, and like our Facebook page to keep up with events. For membership info, send your application to us here and we’ll send you an invoice.

Directions:  The Royce Money Recreation Center on the ACU campus. Turn in the main entrance to the school off Judge Ely and when you pass the flags on the circle, bear right.

Remembering Ron Cost

Our September 3 ride was in memory of Ron Cost, cyclist and Steamboat club member who passed away on August 22. it is Ron’s favorite route, heading east to the Eula area, through Denton Valley and then south of Highway 36 into the Oplin and Dudley areas. Some of the prettiest riding you’ll find in our area, the route stays in the hills. Thanks to Ron’s good friend Ben Galinak for plotting the route. https://www.strava.com/routes/2999036052322585054
