Meetings, Announcements and News

Volunteers Needed for BCP Events

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

Chair (or Co-Chairs) for the Scenic Schuylkill Century
BCP needs a Century Chairperson or Co-Chairs to run our annual Scenic Schuylkill Century ride. The date of this year’s event is Sunday, September 13. We have many volunteers, and many of the Committee Chairs (who oversee the food, road signage, registration, rest stops, etc.) have served this event repeatedly for many years, so there is a lot of continuity, experience, and teamwork in how this ride is staffed and organized. But we need overall Chairperson(s) to coordinate everything. Without such Coordinators, the Century cannot be held. Please contact any of the officers and they will provide a more detailed job description and responsibilities.

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)

Bike Shop Discounts

Discounts at participating bike shops are available to BCP members upon showing the membership card (located on the last page of their most recent QR). 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

We are proud of the fact that the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia was named the 2009 winner of Philadelphia Magazine's Best of Philly award for Intramural Sport.
