Life Member Milestones

December 11, 2013

Despite the ice-cold temperatures we're experiencing right now, life memberships have been coming in hot. Just this week, we reached a major milestone by welcoming our 2000th life member.

Joining as a life member is the ultimate commitment you can make to Adventure Cycling's programs. When joining at this level of membership, not only will you receive all the benefits of membership for life, your membership fees will provide long-term support for our organization. Life member funds gave us the ability to purchase and expand our headquarters in Missoula, Montana. Owning our own building saves us thousands of dollars in interest payments that we can pass on to new route creation and outreach efforts.

Life members are entitled to an embroidered life member fleece jacket, a chainring plaque recognizing their name and contribution, as well as a life member card in addition to a lifetime of the following benefits:

  • Subscription to Adventure Cyclist magazine
  • Member-only access to online editions of Adventure Cyclist
  • Access to our guided tours
  • Member discounts on maps for the Adventure Cycling Route Network
  • Exclusive special offers through our Affiliate Partners

Reaching our 2000th life member was a special milestone for us. We greatly appreciate all our life members and those to come. The question now is whether or not we can hit life member 2013 before the New Year.

Adventure Cycling Association is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. For a life membership, the whole amount minus $245 (individual life) or $295 (joint life) is tax deductible in the year it was paid.

MEMBERSHIP HIGHLIGHTS is posted every other Friday by Josh Tack, Membership Coordinator. Membership Highlights spotlights the various benefits of membership,our accomplishments thanks to member support, and even interviews with some of our most passionate and dedicated members, both individual and organizational.
