What you need to know
Becoming a member of KABC provides ride opportunities throughout Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, Beaufort, Ridgeland and the surrounding areas as well across the border in nearby Georgia in six different ride groups. Each with a different riding pace and distance. More information on the Ride Groups and our Ride Policies can be found on the Ride Information page
KABC Membership includes access to our library of rides on Ride with GPS. This provides turn by turn navigation of our routes and can be utilized on the Ride with GPS smart phone app or downloaded on to a supported bike computer.
The club hosts Happy Hour social events throughout the year where you can meet up with friends and other members to enjoy time together off the bike.
KABC promotes member participation in many non-KABC ride events throughout the region. Pedal Hilton Head Island, Bike Bluffton, Cruisin' in the Country (Claxton, GA) to name a few.
We offer Tire Changing Clinics and Ride Leader Training to our members.
Membership runs through the calendar year (Jan 1st - Dec 31st) with scheduled Saturday rides almost every week and recently implemented 'Show-n-Go' mid-week rides on Hilton Head Island and in and around Bluffton.
The club is run by a Board of Directors and many other volunteers that keep the wheels turning day in and day out. And we are always looking for others to assist in these daily operations.
