Membership Benefits

Since 1963, we’ve strived to create an inclusive, fun and supportive bike racing club culture. New members can join training rides most day of the week, an opportunity to develop their skills, ability, and forge new connections and friendships. In addition, we offer:

Daily group training rides in the Northtowns, Southtowns and Downtown, with longer weekend group rides
Social events, including annual club awards/holiday party

World-class coaching programs led by world renowned cyclists
Racing skills clinics in road and CX

Access to our club forum and resources
Speaker series on training and racing preparation
Speaker series on training and racing preparation
Club championship races with championship jerseys awarded by category


Due to insurance requirements, the Buffalo Bicycling Club (BBC) requires all participants in BBC training races, group rides, and club hosted events to be BBC members.

Please note these changes from previous years:
Full Membership (FM): You'll recieve access/registration to the following BBC events:
  • Mongi's Maple Fondo
  • All BBC Training Event Races/Rides
  • BBC Championship Race at Freedom Run (USAC sanctioned)
  • **2 Marshaling assignments are required!**
$150 Full Membership:

Same as FM without the marshaling. We get it, you're a busy person, your time is scarce, and you certainly don't want to miss a race. So the BBC has a solution, with this membership, we'll take on all the work of finding and assigning the marshals on your behalf. Now all you have to focus on is the race!


Rookie Year Full Membership:

Same as FM above, w/ only 1 mashaling assignment. This option is for new riders who have never joined the BBC before. If this is your first year, the BBC want you to know we are excited you've decided to join us! We were once new racers too, and we understand that figuring out what all this means can be nerve-racking. Some of this may seem confusing, but we're here to help. We want your 1st-year of road racing with us to be a safe, fun, and an educational experience. We're looking forward to meeting you. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to email us: Steve - president@buffalobicycling.com, Tim - vp@buffalobicycling.com, Marit - secretary@buffalobicycling.com, James - treasurer@buffalobicycling.com, Tom - racedirector@buffalobicycling.com


The BBC can no longer allow "non-members" to participate in BBC training races and events. You must purchase a BBC membership from the options above. This "a la carte" approach will give members the option to select what best suits his/her availability and desired participation level.


All 2019 membership options will give you full BBC member rights per the BBC constitution and bylaws, but each will vary individually in event eligibility and marshaling requirements.

MARSHALLING

It's not a glamorous membership duty, but marshaling is the most important race job. Marshals play a vital role in creating a safe and controlled environment for riders during events. Please keep that in mind, without marshals, there can't be BBC races. Future marshals, thank you for your support!

Members, you may not participate in club events until your marshaling obligation have been submitted at http://buffalobicycling.com. If you fail to fulfill your marshaling assignment, you will be suspended from BBC events until your marshaling duty have been completed. This will include both USAC sanctioned and unsanctioned BBC events.

Marshaling Requirements:

Full members must marshal 2 BBC hosted events. Rookie (1st-year) members must marshal 1 BBC hosted event. All other memberships do not carry a mandatory marshaling responsibility but we always welcome the help!

How to Submit a Marshaling Assignment:

Go to www.buffalobicycling.com , click the "racing" or "training events" tab, from those events listed, select the race you wish to marshal, click apply to marshal, and then complete the fields. After submission, you will be emailed marshaling instructions.
