If you love a good workout and hate going to the gym, cycling can be a great way to stay in shape. Or if you’re just looking to have a good time on your bike, a club is a great way to mix and mingle with other like-minded cyclists. According to the Jamaica Cycling Federation president, Joylene Griffiths, there are 9 cycling clubs in Jamaica. Considering Jamaica’s size that’s a good number. And it means that there is a good chance there’s a club near you. Below are links to more information about some of the clubs with Facebook pages/websites and how to get in touch with them. The Jamaica Cycling Federation is working to bring more publicity to the sport and has posted a calendar of events on their Facebook page with upcoming races and more. The events for 2018 are listed below but check out the JCF Facebook page for updates and results. And all track events will take place at the national stadium unless otherwise noted.
