Basic info about the club

We have rides for new riders and families all the way to experts.

So, whether you prefer fast or relaxed (it's all good!), there's a ride for you. Though, especially if you are new to riding with a club, it's a good idea to start with a ride in a category that you think will be easy.

If you want to become a better cyclist, your club membership can be one of the most effective ways to do that.

Club rides are classified by length (of course) but also by average speed/pace (how fast) and terrain (how hilly). (There's more guidance for picking an appropriate ride here.)

If you are used to riding by yourself, note that it's a bit different riding in a group. Also, keep in mind that there are a few requirements and rules to participate on a club ride. Helmets are required on all club rides.

Persons under the age of eighteen must join the Club with a parent or legal guardian in a family membership, and must be accompanied, at a reasonable distance (within sight of each other), by a parent or legal guardian (in the membership) on all Club rides and events.

Welcome to our club!

BTCNJ  offers two types of memberships: one for a single adult and the other for a family/household (multiple people living at the same address). You can sign-up for either type for a period of one to three years.

Memberships are always full years (you won't be paying for a partial year). The membership is extended from the current date or from the expiration date (whichever date is later). You can renew before your membership expires.

We use PayPal for the payment but you don't need a PayPal account (you can use any credit card).

See how to use a credit card without a PayPal account.
