Since its inception, MassBike has aimed to better cycling in Massachusetts. We currently represent over 3,600 cyclists in the Commonwealth and remain grateful for your continued support throughout the years. Many of you have been with us since the start; you have seen us grow and gain a seat at the table to discuss changes to infrastructure and develop new bikeways and trails. We hope you will continue on this journey with us, as we strive to be the number one state for bikes.
Starting today, membership fees will increase by $5. Individual membership is $40, dual/family $60, and student/low income at $25.
In addition, we will be phasing out our membership card feature over the next year. Anyone who has purchased a MassBike membership prior to 5/21/2015 will still receive a membership card and all benefits included with it, good for the full year of membership purchased until your next renewal. Any new members or renewing members who sign up after 5/21/2015 will receive all membership info (including their membership number) in their welcome letter. And you will of course still get great membership perks, discounts, and coupons when you join as well from some of our fantastic local and national partners. Please visit our membership page for more detailed information.
You will also be able to buy MassBike memberships at select MassBike events, and at participating bike shops and cafes. These special event memberships, will include all the same MassBike membership perks, but will also have a water bottle, blinky lights, and other goodies tucked inside! For more information on this program, or if you want to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the coming days, we’ll also be announcing details regarding major updates to our corporate membership program, where businesses can elect to support MassBike, where they will receive discounted individual memberships for employees, bikability assessments at the office, classes, and much more!
Stay tuned, and thank you for your continued support!
