The Phillips 66 Cycling Club is a volunteer driven cycling group with riders of all levels. The club is open to Phillips 66 employees, their families, retirees, contractors and friends. The intent of the club is to:
- encourage and promote the enjoyment and benefits of cycling for health, recreation and transportation
- promote and advocate safety in all aspects of cycling
- share knowledge and information to improve the riders experience
With the Phillips 66 Cycling Club being based in Houston, Texas, the primary event involving the majority of riders is the annual Bike MS: Texas MS150, a bike ride from Houston to College Station, Texas. This 160-mile, two-day charity bike ride occurs annually in the second quarter and is intended to raise funds to help end the devastating effects of MS (Multiple Sclerosis). The Club actively participates in this event and has raised over $750,000 toward MS since being a standalone company.
Riders generally participate in weekly training rides from January through April, as a means to condition themselves for the Texas MS150. The Phillips 66 Cycling Club riders are offered an opportunity to purchase a team cycling jersey as well as pay a fee for the Texas MS150 weekend logistical support including luggage transportation, team tent, catered food, upscale port-a-lets, phone charging stations, snacks, drinks, and more. Following the Texas MS 150 in April, most riders take time off from their cycling activities, as the Houston heat does become a factor.
For riders continuing their cycling activities throughout the year, information is occasionally shared regarding other organized rides and local drop-in rides.
