Join Team Bicycle Sport Shop by signing up online through our website at http://bicyclesportshop.com/to/JoinTeamBSS. Any club captain or an employee at the shop can help you if you have any questions about signing up.
How long is my membership valid?
Membership is for one calendar year from January 1st to December 31st of the same year.
How much does a club membership cost?
The annual dues are $110 per person. We offer discounted early-bird pricing to encourage early registration. See price schedule here.
How much does a club membership cost if I join midway through the year?
The $110 membership dues are unfortunately not pro-rated so the cost is the same.
When will I get my Bicycle Sport Shop Cycling Club clothing package?
All members will receive their club clothing as soon as it becomes available.
What do I get when I join?
When you join you will receive a club clothing package including a cycling jersey or triathlon top, a club t-shirt, and socks. You will also have the ability to order additional race kits, skinsuits, or triathlon kits at a substantial discount at the beginning of every season. When offered, club member will also receive promotional items and deals from other club sponsors and shop vendors.
Yes. You'll receive great discounts from our sponsors. You'll also be invited to our exclusive clup shopping night every quarter. There is an opportunity to earn further store discounts by participating in our Legacy Program >
Do I have to race?
Of course not! But if you choose to race, you should register with USAC or USAT as a member of the Bicycle Sport Shop Cycling Club so you can represent your club!
Do I need to get a license?
No, most races offer the opportunity to race on a one-day license. But if you plan on racing a number of events it is more cost-effective to purchase an annual license. Moreover, holding an annual license will make you eligible for things like Texas Cup series points and awards in certain disciplines depending on your race finishes.
While the club is not officially a race team, there are a number of club members that frequently race criteriums, road races, cyclocross races, MTB races, gravel grinders, and triathlons of every distance. For those riders that get an annual license through USAC, there is an opportunity to not only designate your club as the Bicycle Sport Shop Cycling Club, but also your race team(s) within the club for each discipline. For example, the Bicycle Sport Shop Club would be your club and if you race cyclocross you'd be able to select the Bicycle Sport Shop Cyclocross Team as your "team." You can ask any of our club captains about the licensing process.
Do you offer race reimbursement?
Yes. The Race Reimbursement Program (RRP) aims to reimburse a portion of race entry fees for club members who race in USA Cycling and/or USAT sanctioned races. Race Reimbursement >
I just purchased my first bike, can I join the club?
Yes, of course! The Bicycle Sport Shop Cycling Club is open to everyone with a bike.
Is there a minimum age for participation in the clubs?
No, but if a club member is under 16, we require parental participation at club events.
