The Best Time to Join Adventure Cycling Is Now

January 19, 2018

You can join Adventure Cycling Association anytime you want — we’re always happy to welcome new members into our family of more than 53,000 cyclists, no matter the time of the year. That said, if you join us within the next few weeks, you had better prepare your mind, body, and soul for a world of bicycle travel inspiration. That’s right, our January New Member Drive is happening right now, and we’re pulling all the stops to gain your support.

“But wait,” you say, “it’s January and I’m not yet prepared to fully embrace the bicycle travel experience.” That’s okay. When you join us by January 31, we’ll send you a free 2018 Bicycle Travel Calendar as a thank you gift. Go ahead and hang it on your wall, and when you’re ready, you can start penciling in as many bicycle adventures as you see fit.

When you join today, we’ll also send you a $10 gift certificate to our Cyclosource store. Feel free to use it on bicycle maps and/or touring gear. Also keep in mind that as a member, you’ll always get up to 30% off Adventure Cycling Route maps, as well as a number of discounts from our affiliate partners. When used wisely, these discounts can pay for the membership and then some!

While we’re at it, why not raffle off some sweet gear! Join us by January 31 for your chance to win one of these prizes, donated by our corporate partners:

  • $150 Gift Certificate to Club Ride Apparel
  • Portland Design Works Lucky Cat water bottle and cages
  • ABUS Youn-I helmet and Bordo Lite bike lock
  • Planet Bike Blaze 650 SLX , Superflash USB, and Bottle Blinky lights.
  • Adventure Cycling map set of your choice

And if that weren’t enough to sway you, join or renew your Adventure Cycling membership, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a Co-Motion Cycles Divide adventure bike. Made in Oregon, this is one of those bikes people dream about owning, and it could be yours for the price of membership. Join us today, and let’s have a great year of adventures.
