STLRC – Membership

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

Mission Statement

The mission of the club is to encourage and facilitate recreational bicycling activities as a part of a healthy lifestyle. This mission shall be accomplished by organizing and conducting recreational rides, promoting biking safety, providing social opportunities for club members, and gathering and disseminating information about recreational bicycling.

Who is STLRC?

The club is a group of mature adults who enjoy riding on weekday mornings and other special times during the spring, summer, and autumn months.

  • Ride leaders volunteer as needed and select the route for the ride they lead.

  • Ride leaders select the route for each respective ride.

  • Schedule and other information about planned rides is presented on this website.

  • 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.

About STLRC Membership

Club membership is open to all cyclists who are willing to abide by the good riding practices described on this website.

  • All cyclists who participate in one of our group rides are required to be a member of the club by their second ride.

  • Membership dues are $20.00 per year and are due at the beginning of the year. Prior to riding on a second group ride, a cyclist that is new to the group is expected to become a member.

  • The membership form is also a waiver of liability. In the case that a minor wishes to become a member, a parent or guardian should sign the minor child waiver on behalf of the child before the second ride. Contact for a waiver form for a minor.
  • Members of STLRC ride free on all club rides, and are invited to participate in special 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 ride does not contain a waiver.

  • STLRC carries insurance which protects the ride leader and the club from liability suits resulting from a problem on a ride. This insurance also serves as secondary insurance to any rider who is injured on a ride.

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


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