This is day two of Adventure Cycling's Bright Lights Big Adventure membership drive. We welcomed a lot of new members to Adventure Cycling yesterday, and we want to keep that momentum going. Between now and June 30, if you join Adventure Cycling online as a new member, we'll toss you a Sigma Micro Light in addition to the rest of your member benefits.
When you join Adventure Cycling Association, you're joining a collection of more than 46,500 members who share a passion for bicycle travel. Here are some of those members who have visited our office in Missoula, Montana, while on a long distance bike tour of their own:
This is Dennis, and he loves our maps, which he is using to get from Astoria, Oregon, to Lewes, Delaware. Currently the price of gold is around $42/gram. Our maps weigh in at about 26 grams a piece, which would put them just shy of $1100. We're prepared to sell them to you for $11.75 with your member discount.
Here we've got Jeremy, who is riding from Cape Disappointment, Washington, to Coney Island, New York. Bicycle touring is hard work, and if you stop by our office on your bicycle tour, we're ready to throw down the welcome mat with free ice cream, soda, and a lounge to kick back in.
If you join today, not only will you join Dennis, Jeremy, and the tens of thousands of other Adventure Cyclists out there, you will also be entered in our raffle to win a Richard Jones Shadow Pack. This pack holds 650 cubic inches of gear, and is made of a durable Cordura fabric that will hold up to the rigors of long-distance touring. It converts from a waist pack to a rack bag for versatility.
THE 2013 BRIGHT LIGHTS BIG ADVENTURE campaign runs through 5pm MDT on June 30, 2013. Adventure Cycling Association's mission is to inspire and empower people to travel by bicycle. We depend on dedicated cyclists to continue programs such as expanding the Adventure Cycling Route Network, keeping our online resources up to date, maintaining our education and outreach efforts, and building an official U.S. Bicycle Route System.
