Adventure Cycling appreciates the support we receive from our members, and to show our appreciation, we offer some great benefits. In addtion to 9 issues of our award winning Adventure Cyclist magazine, discount on our maps, and access to our guided tours, we also offer service and equipment affiliate benefits from other companies.
On the equipment end, Bike Friday will take 5% off the price of a custom bike for Adventure Cycling members. If a new bike is out of your budget, RentaBikeNow.com offers our members 10% off all bike rentals. Speaking of rentals, members can also get 10% off outdoor equipment rentals from LowerGear.com. I know what you're thinking — "wow, my bicycle-touring future is starting to look bright!" For a bright future, we recommend dark shades, and our members receive 30% off Optic Nerve eyewear.
Not quite sure where you want to go for your next tour? I would suggest taking a look at Bike Tours Direct, who not only offer tours all over the world, but also give our members 25% off any of their trips. If you need a bike box to get to where you're going, BikeFlights.com offers our members 10% off the price of a bike case, and can help you out with shipping needs.
Once you hit the road, if you're in need of a hotel, our members receive 10% their stay at any Motel 6 in the United States. Last but not least, if you're in need of assitance on the road, Better World Club is a great bike friendly alternative to AAA, and members get up to 25% the cost of their membership.
