Hopefully, you will forge some new friendships along the way too! Additional benefits include:
Regular group training rides in the Northtowns, Southtowns and Downtown, with longer weekend group rides
Social events, including annual club awards/holiday party
Mentorship program led by experienced WNY's cyclists; Providing 1:1 teaching to new members.

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.
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 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.
BBC "Out of Towner" Membership
This membership is reserved for visiting guest riders who live outside of WNY. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for qualifications.
This support membership is for anyone who won't be racing but would like to be on the BBC mailing list. This membership keeps you in the know of club events and news.
BBC Track Night Only Membership
Includes registration for all "Track Night" BBC training events (see website for dates TBA). No marshaling duties required.
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!
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.
Full and Rookie members must marshal one BBC hosted events. All other memberships do not carry a mandatory marshaling responsibility but we always welcome the help!
