Founded in 2014, SNBC Cycling has been leading riders across southern Illinois on pavement, gravel, and some trails. As the premiere cycling club in the area, we welcome cyclists from all backgrounds, whether racing or coasting, it's all about the ride.
 

Our Mission

Our goal is to bring together local cyclists of all levels while celebrating southern Illinois.
