There are two classes of membership of Bike North offering different benefits, and each class comes in a few different types. You must choose if you want to be a Standard Member or a Premium Member.

We strongly recommend all cyclists take out insurance to protect you in the event of an incident while riding. Insurance comes through membership of Bike North as a Premium Member, or by separately joining Bicycle NSW. You should view the appropriate documents and make your own assessment as to whether the insurance meets your needs.

Standard membership

This is for members who wish to support our organisation. You gain access to our email lists and clothing, can become a ride leader or committee member. Standard membership does not provide any insurance cover so is best for those who already have insurance through another organisation such as Bicycle NSW.

TypeFeeSummary
Standard$35For individuals, includes all Bike North standard benefits
Family$50For more than one person of a family living at the same address – includes all Bike North standard benefits for each person
Concession$25For individuals who are pensioners, 65 years plus or full-time students – includes all Bike North standard benefits

To join Bike North as a Standard, Concession or Family member, use the Join Up menu item.

Multiple year standard membership is available if you want to join or renew for two or three years.  Simply pay two or three times the annual fee (e.g. $70 for two years Standard membership) and email the Treasurer (treasurer@bikenorth.org.au) and the Membership Officer (membership@bikenorth.org.au) to let us know.
