Types of Membership
There are two classes of membership, Standard and Premium, each offering a number of options relating to age. See our Types of Membership link on the left for a full explanation before you join.
How do I join Bike North?
We would like your support – For Standard membership you can join on-line using our Join Up link to the left. During the joining process you will be given a reference number, please take note of the reference number as you will need that when it comes time to make your payment. For Premium membership please see our Types of Membership on the left with links to the Cycling Australia membership process.
How do I use my Membership Voucher?
If you are lucky enough to have a Membership Voucher then joining Bike North is easy. Click on the Join Up link to the left and fill in the membership form. You will be asked to enter the voucher number towards the end of the process. Once the process is complete you will be a paid up member of Bike North.
Do I need to be an experienced cyclist to ride with or join Bike North?
Absolutely not. Whilst our rides do cater very well for serious, long distance riders, we also take pride in helping novices find their cycling wheels. So, whether your idea of a great ride is a gentle trundle around Olympic Park, a hard slog up Mt. White and beyond, or anywhere in between, we’ve got the ride for you.
Can I volunteer to help Bike North?
We encourage all members to become involved in our work to promote cycling. You can do this by indicating how you can help on the membership form or give us a call. Our tasks range from the simple to complex and one-offs to quite time demanding. Ride Leading, stuffing envelopes, writing letters or articles, surveying routes, participating in a meeting. These are but a few examples.
