Benefits of Membership:

Cyclists benefit from club membership by riding with experienced cyclist and learning among other things:  new bike routes, cycling safety, cycling skills/techniques, on road repairs, at home bike maintenance, cycling nutrition/hydration, cold weather riding, and first aid.

The $20 membership dues is a family membership.  Members receive discounts at local bike shops that sponsor the club (click here for links), we have a free Ride-a-Palooza Summer Social as well as an annual Winter Dinner at a greatly reduced price.  There are also special rides and events during the year that include an adult beverage or two for our members.  On top of all this, there are weekly rides at various distances, and paces to meet everyone's needs.  What a deal!


 

Expectations of Members:

Members are encouraged to participate in rides and events, to lead rides and coordinate events and to encourage fellow members to be more active in the club.

Ride leaders and club members are expected to make sure that club rides, whether they are social, recreational, training or endurance rides, are the pace and level as advertised, and that riders enjoy the ride and are encouraged to return. 

Members are expected to choose the correct club ride for their ability and goals.

Tips for Fall Cycling

Autumn is a time of change. Some of it great – the leaves changing color, a new season for new endeavors, and a welcome relief from the heat. But that change also brings with it some new challenges for those who get around by bike. The rain can be a big deterrent for a lot of people to continue using their bike as a means of transportation. We also get shorter days, cooler mornings and evenings, and cloudiness. But the new conditions need not be a deterrent, just another opportunity to find your footing on two wheels. Here are some tips for cycling in autumn to keep you enjoying your commute through the cooling season.

I LOVE riding in Hunterdon County! The plateau in Kingwood to the rolling hills in Readington. Sometimes a challenge, but always beautiful scenery!

Kurt Grabfelder:

I appreciate being a club member because it makes it much easier to get riders together for a group ride.  Riding with a group is safer and, I think, it brings out the best effort in you.  I like associating with like minded people who are interested in biking, fitness and nutrition.
