Life Membership

Join as a life member today!

A Life Membership gives you a lifetime of benefits and provides Adventure Cycling with the financial support to maintain a strong organization. As a Life Member, you'll never receive another renewal notice, and you'll receive all the benefits of membership for life. It's an exciting way to honor your commitment to cycling and celebrate more trips to come!

Funds from Life Memberships are specially designated to support the long-term future of Adventure Cycling. In the past, Life Member funds have helped us purchase and expand our headquarters building, saving the association thousands of dollars in interest payments. We then put the savings toward more route creation and reaching out to cyclists.

The Life Member Fund also supports the development of the geospatial database that now underlies all of our route development and updating.

Life Members and Joint Life Members receive:

  • Lifetime subscription to Adventure Cyclist magazine
  • Tax deduction
  • Choice of any complete paper Adventure Cycling Route Network map set

As well as a lifetime of these membership benefits:
