Bikes and Life Cycling Club
Come join us!
Bikes and Life Cycling Club was established to promote physical fitness, camaraderie and civic responsibility to cyclists of all abilities.
Members range from casual recreational cyclists, to enthusiasts, to racers and juniors. We encourage members to post rides of varying levels.
We are excited about our future and our partnership with Bikes and Life. We have a lot to work out and are in the process of preparing for the future. We have decided to hold off on a holiday party until January, when we will be better prepared to deliver all of the details surrounding our transition from Team Bicycle Alley to Bikes+Life Cycling Club. There will be more information coming in the next few weeks so stay tuned. Lots of good stuff!
Please stop in to the shop and see what's going on. It's a totally new shop with familiar faces, a completely new vibe, exciting new bike brands, and a new club for all.
Holiday Party In addition, to close out the year, we host a catered Holiday Party. Members, their families and guests are invited, and it's a great time to reconnect. The party includes a free raffle featuring lots of swag, plus a discounted sale on club gear. This year's party will actually take place in January, so stay tuned for the date!
Race Reimbursement Membership also includes Race Reimbursement, for those who choose to compete. Requirements: Must do at least five races, must finish the race, must wear a club jersey, must volunteer at a club event, race must be sanctioned, and you must submit published results. All races are subject to approval by committee. Training races are not eligible for reimbursement. Reimbursement is not guaranteed and is based upon availability of funds.
Our Club Sponsors Members who know of any potential sponsors for the club are encouraged to contact Committee members. Sponsors are essential to the club and we promote them by placing their logo onto our club clothing. There are a wide range of sponsorship levels available, all with a 2-year commitment.
Club meetings will be posted to the ridelist. You can obtain additional club information by visiting this site, or if you have questions or comments please e-mail Jon Fielding or Tom Robert. Remember, keep all correspondence pertaining to the club limited to e-mail.
