Bendigo Mountain Bike Club Lifetime Supporter Membership, Online, Monday, 20. January 2020
About this Event
Become a Lifetime Supporter of mountain biking in Bendigo!
The Bendigo Mountain Bike Club has launched a brand new Lifetime Supporter membership. This membership is open to anyone and everyone - whether you're a rider, a racer with an existing MTBA license, or just an A-grade legend who wants to help out your local community. The membership involves a one-off payment ($5 for singles, $10 for families), and this will see you become a lifetime supporter of mountain biking in Bendigo!
Why are we introducing the Lifetime Supporter membership?
Simple - it’s all about strength in numbers ? We need your help to grow the voice for mountain bikers in Bendigo. The greater our numbers, the louder our voice!
The club is determined to grow and foster mountain biking in Bendigo, and part of that involves developing a sustainable, purpose-built trail network for Spring Gully and the Bendigo area. To do this, we need to make sure your voice is heard by the powers that be.
So how does the Lifetime Supporter membership differ to the existing club race license?
Firstly, the Lifetime Supporter membership does not have any affiliation with MTBA (Mountain Bike Australia). It is not a race license, and it does not provide you with any form of insurance. Be sure to go to the MTBA website if you'd like to find out more about a club race license.
Secondly, whereas a race license expires every 12 months, the Lifetime Supporter membership does not. Once you've made your one-off payment, you're a supporter for life!
We as a club love racing, and we put our heart and soul into running the very best events we can to allow riders of all ages and backgrounds to race their bike in a fun and supportive environment. All our events are run by volunteers - not for profit, but for the love of the sport and our local community.
However, we understand that racing isn’t for everyone. We also know that there are literally thousands of mountain bikers across Bendigo and the wider Goldfields region who want to see mountain biking grow and develop, but don’t necessarily want to buy a race license or join a committee.
And this is why we have created the Lifetime Supporter membership. To bring together riders of all ages and all backgrounds, whether they race bikes or just ride for fun, to be a part of a powerful movement to share the mountain biking story that we all know and love.
So tell your mates, tell your family, and get them on board as a supporter of Bendigo mountain biking!
