Do you have to own a BMW to be a member?

When are Membership Dues due?

Memberships renew between January 1 and April 1 of a year.

How can I get involved?

We are an all volunteer club.  We are always happy to have people suggest ride locations and lead a ride.  We can use support for our website, for photos of events, to plan meeting programs such as speakers or presentations.  We love to showcase your own personal rides you might want to share about where you went, what gear you packed, how you prepared, what obstacles you ran into.  We would also welcome anyone who might volunteer a location (big garage, owned business location) to host as a site for a technical training or bike tune up meeting.  There are lots of ways to get involved!
