2024 Venue To Be Announced

Please check back here in late December or early January, 2024 when the full website is launched.
The Bloomin' Metric® is a bike tour event for every type of rider from the novice to advanced cyclist. We offer four routes that travel along stunning beaches and through the classic New England countryside of Connecticut. The Bloomin' has such a rich history and it's that story that makes the Sound Cyclists Bicycle Club so successful to this day.

What's New for 2024

We will be announcing an event venue shortly. We are looking into all the possibilities - new and old.
We will be going electronic for navigating all cycling routes. Note: the 25 km/15-mile route is still going to be led by seasoned ride leaders. For riders not using navigational devices, instructions for downloading cue sheets will be provided. We will also be providing instructions for those with smart phones who would like to be able to get turn-by-turn audio and/or visual cues. This is a great way to make the switch from a cue sheet to electronic navigation by simply using your phone.

Bloomin' Metric Jersey

We will have all new cyclewear with a whole new ordering process available soon. When it's ready to go, you can get a good jump on this and purchase early enough in order to receive your items before the event. We are not yet ready to take orders.
This will be a custom order and non-refundable so make sure you double check your fit and size.
To help you select the right size, model and fit, we have also included a Agile Sportswear Guide so you can double check your size and the different fits. We have also included a Agile Comparison Chart for you to see the difference between the Elevate and Volare Elite styles.
