No matter the kind of biking, there is a club for it. Check out these groups at their Web sites:

• Artemis: Promotes and supports women in bicycle racing. Also develops junior riders and men in the sport. www.artemisracing.org

• Babes on Bikes: These Northern Virginia women ride every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Ages range from mid-20s to mid-60s, with stay-at-home moms, career women and retirees. www.babesonbikes.org

• Brother to Brother/Sister to Sister: The only cycling club in Washington specifically for blacks. Members ride to benefit research in sickle cell anemia, HIV/AIDS and other diseases disproportionately affecting the black population. www.bbssu.org

• Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts: MORE promotes regional mountain biking opportunities through trail maintenance, advocacy, and education. For those who truly follow the road less traveled. www.more-mtb.org

• Potomac Pedalers Touring Club: PPTC is the largest recreational riding group in Washington and has a little bit of everything for everyone. www.bikepptc.org

• Squadra Coppi: Named after Italian bike racer Fausto Coppi, Squadra Coppi is focused on men’s and women’s racing. www.squadracoppi.com

• Washington Area Bicyclist Association: An advocacy organization rather than a club, WABA is a great starting point for Washington area cycling information. www.waba.org

• Washington Area Bicyclists in Tandem Society: Tandem biking is not just something from an old Doublemint commercial; it’s a fun way to exercise and spend time with a partner. phoenix.websulting.com/wabits
