Orange County Wheelmen
Founded in June 1968, the Orange County Wheelmen (OCW) is the most diverse and oldest bicycle club in Orange County with over 500 members. OCW started as a recreational cycling club. Its focus has expanded to staging cycling events that attract hundreds of riders, to maintaining an active presence in the community through charitable donations, and to promoting safety and political advocacy through the club’s training rides and support of the Orange County Bicycle Coalition, the California Association of Bicycling Organizations, and the League of American Bicyclists.
Breathless Agony is one of four major cycling events held throughout the year. It’s one of the most challenging centuries in Southern California at 107 miles and 12,000 ft of climbing!
