Welcome to the official website of the Dothan Area Cyclists! DAC is an active bicycle club covering Dothan, Alabama and the surrounding Tri-State area. The club offers something for all age and ability levels. We invite everyone with an interest in cycling to join and take part in the variety of activities offered by the club. We look forward to seeing you on our rides!
One of the desires as a club is to encourage and assist cyclists as they learn and grow in cycling, no mater if you ride for enjoyment or as a sport. Following along that line, we have come up with a list of tips for cyclists that well feel will be helpful to anyone, no matter how many years you may have ridden. We all need to be reminded from time to time about proper riding techniques and obeying the rules of the road.
This website is maintained to keep you informed of DAC and other cycling events in the area. There is almost always a ride going on. If you are looking for an impromptu weekend ride, check out the DAC Facebook group. Be sure to keep an eye on the News section of this page also for details on other club and cycling-related happenings and information.
Regular club meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:00 PM at various locations. Check emails and the Facebook page for current month location.
