Benefits of MBBC Membership
In appreciation of your commitment to support local cycling, MBBC members are entitled to a growing list of benefits, currently including:
All of the MBBC weekly group rides, many in summer, some all year round.
Admission to club-only rides, such as Bill's Hills, North Cascades, and other annual club excursions.
Free admission to Bike Club classes such as bike maintenance classes and ride leader training.
Bike Travel Cases The club owns 3 Shippable (or airline checkable) Bike Cargo Cases, and members may check out the cases for their personal travel use. Reserve your case (email Carol Spano) and arrange time for pick-up and return. You'll need to put down a $50 deposit which will be returned upon return of the case in good condition. (Instructions for packing your bike in one of our cases are HERE.)
Bike Club Jerseys
The new Mount Baker Bicycle Club long sleeve jerseys are designed and ready for ordering from Podium Wear (in Minnesota). These jerseys are a Merino wool blend and should be very nice as the weather gets cooler.
Podium Wear has a sizing section with measurements for each style and size. Sizing is pretty detailed. To find the sizing section, go to the Podium Wear website in the cycling section, then find and click on the Men's or Women's Gold Merino Wool Long Sleeve Jersy.
You must place your order by September 22, 2020. Production time is 4-6 weeks. The price is $110 plus $10 shipping. Jerseys will be shipped directly to individuals.
