A Life Membership gives you a lifetime of benefits and provides Adventure Cycling with the financial support to maintain a strong organization. As a Life Member, you'll never receive another renewal notice, and you'll receive all the benefits of membership for life. It's an exciting way to honor your commitment to cycling and celebrate more trips to come!

Funds from Life Memberships are specially designated to support the long-term future of Adventure Cycling. In the past, Life Member funds have helped us purchase and expand our headquarters building, saving the association thousands of dollars in interest payments. We then put the savings toward more route creation and reaching out to current and future cyclists.

The Life Member Fund also supports the development of the geospatial database that now underlies all of our route development and updating.

Limited time 2020 seasonal offer: This year, a generous group of donors are matching all Life Member contributions 100%, so your dollars will go twice as far to support bicycle travel. In addition, the first 100 new life members will not only have your contribution matched 100%, you'll also receive a special Life Member face mask. This high-quality mask is printed with the Life Member logo and comes with a frame and filters for extra comfort and safety.
