Icycle Bicycle is the longest lived tradition/ride of the Western Pennsylvania Wheelmen, and now the Western PA Bicycle Club. For decades, club members have met on New Years day regardless of the weather to bicycle. The routes have varied over the years, but for the last decade or so we have met on the South Side an navigated along the rivers around downtown Pittsburgh. In recent years we meet for a meal afterwards. The Hofbräuhaus makes a great venue, with large tables and live German music for New Years.

The Western Pennsylvania Bicycle Club is a regional club with a large footprint. In events like Icycle Bicycle and Team Decaf we are a Pittsburgh bike club. We are also a Washington County bike club with our rides out of Cecil. And we ride often north into Butler County, so that makes us a Butler County bike club. Westnoreland County, Greene County, Mercer County, we ride a lot of places.
