Thank You For Helping Us Reach 40 Years
40th anniversary logo
We were founded in 1972. That makes us 40 years old this year. In honor of this big milestone, we thought we'd treat ourselves to a new logo (at right).
 
More importantly, this anniversary reminds us that we've only come this far with your support. Our members fuel our advocacy and keep us rolling in the right direction with their passion for bicycling.
 
If you are not a member, or your membership has lapsed, please join us today! We have lofty goals for the next 40 years of bicycling advocacy, and we want you riding with us.
