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

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.
