    WFW Formed

    Local Pensacola men and women saw a need for an organized membership to pursue common cycling goals. They reached out to the League of American Wheelmen and became a 501(c)(4) non-profit to benefit Pensacola bike racers, touring cyclists and cycling advocates and formed the West Florida Wheelmen.

    Joining Forces

    The West Florida Wheelmen embraced members from Team Mayo and Firestone and Summit Cyclists. Blackwater Cycling (our sister group) of Milton, FL was formed to assist rural cyclists in Santa Rosa County.
