Become a member/Renew your membership

The best thing you can do for bicycling in Rhode Island is being a member of RIBike. It gives us more power when we talk to government, and it keeps you in the loop so that you can come to the fun bike-related events we organize. In addition to staying informed and helping to make bicycling better in Rhode Island, RIBike members are eligible for our weekly small-item drawings, discounts at some RIBike events and at participating businesses.

You can make your tax-deductible membership contribution through our secure online system below, or by a check made out to “The Rhode Island Bicycle Coalition” and sent to our mailing address.

Along with your membership support, we also encourage you to Like our Facebook page and Follow us on Twitter. You can also sign up for our email lists (News and Discussion), subscribe to our event calendar, or subscribe to our blog.

Come to stuff

We have regular meetings on the second Monday of each month that anyone is welcome to attend. At these meetings we talk about bike advocacy and what we’ve been doing to make bicycling safer, more comfortable, and more popular!

Also, RIBike or its partner organizations frequently organize other events that are usually wicked fun. We suggest you check out our events calendar and see what looks good to you!

Volunteer

We increasingly need volunteers for all the cool stuff we do! When we put out a call for people to help, we love to hear that you’ll be there to spread the good word about bicycling in Rhode Island. You can get your name in by filling out this form.

Help RIBike While You Shop

If you shop on Amazon.com, you can help us there, too! Completing your Amazon orders through this link will result in Amazon donating a small amount of money to RI Bike. Free for you, great for RI Bike!

Join the Yellow Jersey Club

Finally, if you are interested in donating above and beyond mere membership, we are a 501©3 nonprofit and all donations are tax-deductible. The Yellow Jersey Club is our society of supporters at levels $500 and up. To grow the Bike Coalition from its recent origins as an all-volunteer organization into a professionalized movement that can truly make a difference in this state, we need support at these levels. If you want to be part of this elite group, email or call 401-297-2153 and we can talk about what you’re interested in. Or, if you prefer, here’s a handy online donation form!

Member Discounts

Membership in RIBike gets you discounts at many local businesses! Present your membership confirmation email, and you will be available for sweet deals at our discount partners. If there is a business that isn’t here but you would like to see them listed, suggest it to the business manager and get in touch!
