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.
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.
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.
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)
The BCP Board has recently determined the club's 2014 charitable contributions and/or
memberships to various bike related organizations that benefit the biking community in
general and our members. To view the allocation, please first log in, and then click
the Resources Link
in the Member Access menu.
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).
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.
The club sponsors an email list/list-serve. It contains the latest ride information and is where you can exchange
experiences and information about biking.
more information is available under the "More" menu Item and then "E-Mail List".
