Is your local bike shop a member of Adventure Cycling? Local bike shops are key players in getting more folks on bicycles and we want to support them in that effort through our membership specifically for bike shops. This unique membership offers benefits that help bike shops connect with our members, stay informed about what's new in bicycle touring, and share their knowledge with the cycling community.
Here are just a few of the benefits available to shop members:
By encouraging your local shop to join Adventure Cycling, you can help them be more aware of your needs as a bike tourist and introduce them to our organization. If they still aren't convinced, you can point them to the great feedback below from a few of our member bike shops, highlighting what they love about Adventure Cycling Association:
"We support Adventure Cycling because it supports and encourages bicyclists in their quest for human-powered transportation and recreation. Adventure Cycling legitimizes the bicycle as an authentic vehicle for exploring our world." —Excelsior Cycle, Kellogg, ID
"We're happy to support Adventure Cycling because they are the #1 supporter, instigator, and enabler for bicycle touring in this country and always have been, and we think that rocks!" —Velo City, Holland, MI
"For me Adventure Cycling is the 'Keeper of the Faith.' I rode Bikecentennial in '76 and went on to open a bike shop and tour with my family. Now my son works with me. Adventure Cycling continues to develop routes, tours, and leaders, and keeps all of us in touch with our cycle-touring heritage." —Rock 'n' Road Cycle, Grand Haven, MI
