B.I.K.E.S. Club of
Snohomish County

Welcome new members and guests

Non-members are welcome to visit the club for a ride or a meeting.  For insurance purposes non-members are invited guests the first time they participate in a scheduled club ride.  If you like us enough to come on a second or subsequent ride, please join the club.  Member benefits:

  •  Recreational bike rides hosted year-round by friendly, experienced ride leaders
  • Membership in Ride with GPS, an on-line tool that allows bicyclists to plan, navigate and share bike routes
  • Multi-day tours to interesting places organized by members, for members
  • Discounted registration for McClinchy Mile Bicycle Ride
  • Access to a bike trailer or bike box for travel
  • Discounts at some local bike shops

Your B.I.K.E.S. Club membership supports:

  •  A voice in bike advocacy and safety to our local cities and county
  •  Grants for education, safety and bike programs such as Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop and helmets for low-income kids at Christmas House
  •   The insurance, website, equipment storage, and other organizational infrastructure that make a non-profit, all-volunteer bike club possible.

Support your local bike club by joining B.I.K.E.S. of Snohomish County today. 

Non-members who attend multiple rides are excluded from BIKES' accident and liability insurance and put our ride leaders in an awkward position. Don't do that.
