Membership Program

There’s no New Yorker like a Bike New YoRKer.

 

We’re proud to announce the launch of our membership program, where cyclists of all stripes can feel welcome; it doesn’t matter if you can’t tell a crankset from a derailleur or if spandex is your second skin. The thing is, if you are a New Yorker—even if it’s only in your heart or mind—and you ride bikes, you are a part of a community. Let’s make it official.

 

Are you a Bike New Yorker? If so, welcome to your new clubhouse.

FAQ

If I become a member, when will I be able to register early for the 2018 TD Five Boro Bike Tour?

Beginning on or around January 3, you will receive a link from iamATHLETE enabling you to register early for the 2018 TD Five Boro Bike Tour (before registration opens for non-members). The email will be sent to the email address that you listed on your membership registration. To ensure that you receive this email, please add noreply@e.imathlete.com to your email’s safe sender list. For more information on how to add safe senders to your email list, Click Here.

Can I purchase a membership for someone else?

You certainly can, and may we say what an excellent gift-giver you are? On the registration page, just click “I am registering for someone other than myself.”

Can international residents purchase memberships?

Absolutely! However, due to prohibitive customs costs, restrictions, and unacceptable delays, we cannot mail helmets beyond the 48 contiguous states.

When will I receive my helmet, T-shirt, and other swag?

You should receive everything six to eight weeks after you join—maybe even sooner!

Can I exchange my T-shirt and/or helmet for another size?

We’re sorry, there is a strict no-exchange, no-return policy for T-shirts and helmets.

How can I get member discounts at bike shops?

Good question! We’re so happy that you want to patronize those shops offering discounts to Bike New York members. Just present your membership card! And if you have any suggestions for other bike shops or bike friendly businesses, please let us know at membership@bike.nyc.

I want to join Citi Bike. How can I apply my membership discount?

Good for you! And yes, you get a 15% discount on Citi Bike memberships. Check your confirmation email for the one-time use discount code/link, and apply the code on the Citi Bike registration site. This offer is available to new Citi Bike members only.

What about the members-only rides? How can I find out about those?

We’ve planned some awesome, fun members-only rides through 2017. You will not want to miss a single one. Make sure you’re receiving our membership newsletter or email membership@bike.nyc. We are also planning a surprise event, but more about that later. Stay tuned!

I'm a member and I'd like my family to be able to register early for the Tour. Is that possible?

No. Only members get early access to Tour registration.

I want a refund ... my membership is just not working out for me right now.

Oops! There is a strict no-refund policy. But please email membership@bike.nyc We would love your feedback especially if you have suggestions or ideas for how we can improve the program.

Can I transfer, exchange, sell, or give away my membership?

You cannot transfer, exchange, sell, or give away your membership.

When does my membership expire?

Your Bike New York membership is valid for 365 days after your purchase. Please refer to your confirmation receipt to find the expiration date. (Search for support@imathlete.com in your inbox to find your receipt).
