STLRC – Membership

Stay connected, stay healthy, and never miss out on the fun. Joining is easy and anyone wanting to join us for our events is encouraged to join. Membership is only $20 per year, and all participants are protected under our group insurance plan.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Club is to encourage and facilitate recreational bicycling activities as part of a healthy lifestyle, which shall be accomplished by organizing and conducting recreational rides and hikes, promoting biking safety, providing social opportunities for club members, and gathering and disseminating information about recreational bicycling, hiking, and any other lawful activities.

Who is STLRC?

The club is a group of mature adults who enjoy riding and hiking.

  • Leaders volunteer as needed and select the route for the ride event they lead.

  • Schedule and other information about planned events is presented on this calendar.

  • St. Louis Recreational Cyclists have a variety of rides — all of them essentially recreational in nature. Many try to avoid hilly routes, and ride an average of 25-35 miles at a reasonable pace, taking occasional water and rest breaks during the ride. Others go for greater distances at a faster pace, and sometimes over more hilly terrain.

  • We have a variety of hikes from 3 or more miles of varying difficulties.

Find an event that suits your taste and join us!

About STLRC Membership

Club membership is open to all cyclists who are willing to abide by the good riding practices described on this website, and to those that wish to participate in group hikes safely.

  • Membership dues for new and existing members are $20.00 per year and are due at the beginning of the year. Dues for returning members are delinquent after January 31st and returning members will be charged $25.  First time guests may participate on a ride or hike free but prior to participating in a second event, each person is expected to become a member.

  • The membership form is also a waiver of liability. Each first time guest will be asked to sign a non-member waiver.

  • Members of STLRC participate free on all club events.

Membership Application

To join or renew your membership, simply send your completed Membership Application & Renewal Form to the address listed on the form along with your annual dues.

  • Since you will sign a waiver when you become a member, the sign-in sheet used at each event does not contain a waiver.

  • STLRC carries insurance which protects the event leaders and the club from liability suits resulting from a problem on an event. This insurance also serves as secondary insurance to any participant who is injured on an event.

  • For more information visit the website of our insurance provider.

 

We also encourage people to become individual members of the League of American Bicyclists.
