HOME > MEMBERSHIP
Non-members are always welcome to join us on our rides or attend our Club Meetings, It's a great way to learn about the club and its members. (Please note that helmets are required to be worn on all club rides.)
Two Types of Memberships
There are two types of membership in The Bike Hikers: individual and family. An individual membership is $15 per year and family memberships (2 adults and children under 18) are $20 per year. As a member, you will receive the Ride Schedule mailed to your home. You will also be eligible to earn mileage for all club rides which counts toward annual mileage awards. There is an annual Awards Banquet where the top mileage earners for the year are honored.
Year Around Cycling
The Club schedules a variety of rides throughout the year. Many rides are held on the American River Bike Trail, a beautiful pathway that follows the American River from Old Sacramento to Beal's Point at Folsom Lake. Non-members are always welcome, and helmets are mandatory on all club rides. The Sacramento Bike Hikers publish a quarterly Ride Schedule, which provides for year-round cycling. Rides include holiday rides, summer evening rides, weekday rides, and special club rides. Non-members are invited to attend rides and club meetings to get a feel for the club, without obligation. In addition to various day rides the club hosts several overnight tours throughout the year. Club Members have the printed Ride Schedule mailed to them every quarter.
Each year Club Members organize various cycling tours for the club. They may be just weekend overnights, week long camping adventures or anything in between. Typically they are within California and include locations like Monterey, San Francisco and Lassen National Forest. Club Tours provide an economical alternative to expensive touring companies. The only catch is you must be a member to participate in any of the tours.
Monthly membership meetings provide club business updates, open discussion on club activities and policies, and feature speakers on subjects of interest. Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. Club meetings are open to all. As a member you can discuss and vote on club activities and policies.
The Sacramento Bike Hikers support many other cycling-related organizations throughout the year by providing member support and financial support. (The club supports the American River Parkway Foundation, Cycle 4 Hope, 50 Bikes for 50 Kids, SABA and many other local organizations.) The Sacramento Bike Hikers also put on the annual Party Pardee Century for the enjoyment of local area cyclists.
