Who Joins Our Club and Why?
The main reasons people give for engaging in recreational road biking are fun, exercise, and socializing. The number one reason people give for not road biking is fear of injury. The BCC addresses all of these motivations and concerns by offering safe, fun, social group rides and advocating for improvements in the safety of our road biking environment.
Recreational road bikers represent a spectrum from those who see it as an occasional hobby to those who have a year-round passion for it. The BCC can accommodate both kinds of cyclists. For those who have a passion for it, a club like ours offers ways to stay involved year round and when not on the bike. Those who see it as a hobby may be attracted to our organized social and educational functions where they share information and fun with fellow enthusiasts and develop cycling friends.
For those more passionate about cycling, serving as a volunteer or volunteer leader offers opportunities to get more involved in ride leadership, route planning, safety education, cycling advocacy, and event planning. These activities enrich the experience of less involved members by providing useful safety, equipment, route, and cycling skills information as well as interesting cycling-related topics of conversation for rides and events. The core volunteer leadership team is uniquely engaged year-round in sharing the joy of road biking with fellow riders — some who have been riding for years, others who have just rediscovered this incredible activity. Our rides and events create a remarkable sense of community and encourage people to discover their own community in a whole different way.
No Cycling Elitism Here
Our members are welcoming and not elitist. We want riders of all levels to feel welcome, so this year we are offering A and B routes on scheduled rides. Both routes start and finish at roughly the same time. The B route is shorter and the average speed is less than on the A ride. We also welcome experienced riders who want to take a break from hammering and have some fun.
