Spoke Haven Cycling Club runs registration, the club calendar, and club e-mail all via Meetup.com. This platform allows us to easily manage events and have more direct communication with our members.
Annual Membership to the club is $30 annually.
Membership includes weekly rides with pre-set routes, additional monthly Taco Tuesday rides with pre-set routes, a 15% discount at Fitchburg Cycles (you must mention you are a part of the Spoke Haven team or wear a team jersey into the shop), a 15% off discount through Chrysalis Hair and Body, 10 class pass discounts with Wisconsin Indoor Cycling (must contact Aaron via e-mail), access to workshops, access to club apparel and opportunities to ride with a team at several local charity ride events.
Why charge an annual fee?
Unfortunately it is expensive hosting a website as well as a Meetup group. Meetup charges a monthly fee for the service and we pay annual fees for the website as well has incur printing fees, fees for being a registered club with the League of American Bicyclists, and for club insurance.
All new members get a 30 day free trial club membership through Meetup, so if you are interested in joining the club please visit www.meetup.com/spokehavencyclingclub. Once your 30 day trial has ended, Meetup will then require you to pay a fee to be a club member and you can use a credit or debit card via their online payment system to join. We do not take any personal credit card information.
If you would like to join, but have financial limitations or have any questions regarding the club please e-mail our club manager, Cassandra Habel, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to be an inclusive club and have access for all women indetified individuals to join.
