Spring is on its way and its time to renew your membership (or join) before April 1
In 2008 Team Evesham had less than ten cyclists, now we have hundreds of bike riders who come out to ride with us on our weekly training rides or participate with the team in charity events.
The growth of the team and cycling has been simply overwhelming. Some have compared cycling to the “new golf” for a fitness and friendship activity. We are just thrilled that so many folks have come out to join in our team.
Team Evesham is a registered non-profit organization under New Jersey law and our charter states that our purpose is to promote cycling and educate the public about cycling and to advocate for bike safety. We foster community awareness of the benefits of cycling and ride in charitable events. The State of New Jersey honored Team Evesham with a special proclamation and celebrated our remarkable record of community leadership, service, and exemplary volunteerism.
When the team was founded we received organizational and financial support from the Evesham Celebrations Foundation. In 2015 the two organizations separated and this support ended. On April 1, 2016, Team Evesham will move to a membership based organization. This change is necessary to continue the many activities of the team and to expand our specific cycling based activities.
- Membership dues will enable the team to offer the following programs:
- Multiple weekly training rides lead by experienced ride leaders
- Group riding instruction sessions
- Mechanical clinics
- Nutrition and fitness Seminars
- Discounts to local merchants, sponsors events, and national promotions
- Advanced sign up and reduced event registration pricing for charitable rides
- Holiday meal program for senior citizens
In addition to the weekly rides and events we have hosted several membership only special events. These included the unlimited pizza ride, our pinelands pancake ride, and a team barbecue.
All 2016 members will get membership cards and stickers for their bikes. Our membership costs are designed to be modest, less than the price of one cup of coffee at your favorite store each month. In fact our annual membership is less than the cost of a single event 5k registrations.
We are offering two categories of membership one for individuals and another one for families. The membership year is designed to correspond to the ride season from April 1 to March 31 of the following year.
At Team Evesham we want to welcome you as a member of our community and we know you will make lifetime friendships here and that you will experience great things both on and off the bike.
“In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you ride with.”
