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.

Funds from Life Memberships are restricted to provide long-term support for 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 has also supported the development of the geospatial database that now underlies all of our route development and updating.
