Meetings, Announcements and News

Volunteers Needed - BCP Needs Your Help

Social Chair Needed

Friends, BCP schedules many enjoyable and informative social events throughout the year, e.g., the Awards Banquet, the Travelogue, the Non-Profit Fair, seminars, tailgate parties, etc. We need a SOCIAL CHAIR to help plan and organize these satisfying events on the calendar. If you are interested in helping to organize some of the social events for our club, please contact Linda McGrane (267-251-7862 or mcgrane_linda_a@yahoo.com). These worthwhile events, cannot take place without someone to plan and organize them. If you are able to help BCP, THANK YOU for volunteering!

There are several other opportunities to help BCP. Remember BCP is an all volunteer organization. If you would like further information about any of the opportunities listed below, please contact any of BCPs Officers or Board members for additional details. http://phillybikeclub.org/newbcp/members/board

Board of Directors
BCP is looking for members who would like to serve on our Board of Directors, to help BCP at the decision-making and leadership level. The Board of Directors discusses the major issues which affect our club, and makes the administrative and policy decisions which guide our club forward as the largest cycling club in the Greater Philadelphia region. The Board meets once a month, for 10 meetings for year. BCP's Bylaws, which are available on the website, provide additional information on how the Board of Directors functions.

Adopt-a-Highway Coordinator
The AAH Coordinator organizes BCP's road clean-up events along Yellow Springs Rd just west of Valley Forge National Park, in collaboration with the Brandywine Bike Club. The overall Adopt-a-Highway program is administered by PennDoT. Our two clubs are responsible for hosting four clean-up events throughout the year, that is, BCP and BBC would each be responsible for leading two clean-up events. The Adopt-a-Highway program is very rewarding and satisfying – we are helping to maintain the tidiness and beauty of a road which is frequently used by cyclists.


Member's Guide

The BCP Member's Guide is now available on the web site. A link to it can be found under the Join Renew menu. (Join Renew => BCP Member's Guide)

Certain bike shops can also check online whether a customer actually is a BCP member (encourage them to contact the club if they don't have this feature).


award ribbon Best of Philly Award
