General Information

There are numerous links available at the site. They are primarily available using the menus near the top right of the page. Some items are restricted for members only use but most items are generally available. In particular, information about rides is available to everyone and everyone is welcome to join our rides. Before joining one of the club's rides, you may find it useful to read the information available under the 'rides' menu, the item 'classifications'.

We hope you find the site useful and that you will consider joining the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia.

How to Pre-Register

If you are like me, you've probably waited dozens of times before a ride to fill out a sheet with your name, cell phone number and emergency contact number. That's all changed. Now you have the option to sign up online. It all starts with the ride listing. Some rides will have a link to "Preregister". Clicking Preregister will take you to a form asking for the usual information: name, cell phone, emergency contact. Submit the information and you'll see the rides you've signed up for and the contact information you entered. The next time you pre-register, we'll show your contact information and your rides. Changing or deleting are easy. If you change computers, just give us an e-mail address. We'll match it to what you gave us before. The night before the ride, we'll shut down pre-registration to allow time for the ride leader to print out the sheet. On the day of the ride, the ride leader will have your contact information. All we'll need is your signature.
 
To get started, look for a "preregister" link on the calendar. (Not all rides accept early sign up. Early sign in is at the option of the ride leader.) Fill out the form. And check to make sure you've signed up for the right ride. It's OK to change your mind.
