Membership

Individual membership in the Downers Grove Bicycle Club is open to all individuals age 18 or older. Your membership fee goes to support club meetings, events and activities, bicycle advocacy in the community, educational events and other cycling-related goodness. So support the club and join us!

A family membership is available for individuals of the same household with two or more members age 18 or older. Household members under 18 years of age may participate in non-voting club activities when accompanied by a parent or guardian; and with a parent/guardian signed waiver for the activity on file with the club.

Membership dues are $25 for an individual membership and $30 for a family membership. The membership year is the calendar year, with renewal dues due by January 31st. Members who join DGBC in the fourth quarter will have their first year membership period extended through the end of the following membership year. Members are considered delinquent if their renewal hasn’t been received by February 1st of the membership year and lose “Good Standing” status until the dues are paid. Members must be in Good Standing with dues current to be eligible to vote.
