BOBie Club Membership – Family Plan

Cycling couples and families may enjoy membership discounts under our Family Plan. Once the primary member has completed their application process at $35, cycling family members within the household may be added for only $20 per member. If you have questions, feel free to contact us at membership@bobie.org

Club Rider Insurance

Club membership includes General Liability and Participant Accident Medical Coverage. This insurance applies ONLY to Premium Club Members while on a posted (on our club Meetup Calendar) club ride. This insurance does not apply to canceled club rides, rides with less than 2 members, personal rides, and rides prior to or after the posted club ride, including if the rider has left the posted ride. This insurance does not cover damages to the riders bike. Summary of Benefits including conditions of the insured, policy limits & exclusions, as well as links to our current and past Certificates of Insurance, can be found here: How To Report An Accident

BOBie Club Kit Purchases

The ability to purchase a BOBie Club Kit or portions thereof is an exclusive benefit available only to our Premium Club Members. Together with JL Velo Designs, our kit manufacturer, we offer our custom club design at volume discounts with some sizing customization.  We often provide sample sizing sessions as well. Typically, we provide full club orders in May, as needed orders in November, and all orders are placed and purchased by the members, not the club. Club officials pick up the entire club order for distribution.  November orders take longer as JL Velo shuts down for holiday in late December. Keep an eye on your email (the one you provided on your membership application form) and on our website posts and here: Announcements/Kit Orders.

Leadership Team Opportunities

Our Leadership Team plays a very important role in the success of our cycling club. Whether you would like to host a ride (mentoring is available), represent us at our club booth at an event, or volunteer at our picnic or other special events, our team appreciates your help. For more information about joining our Leadership Team, contact us at info@bobie.org

Annual Club Picnic Tickets

Our annual all-member club picnic is held each year within the first 2 weeks of October, recently at Chino’s Ayala Park under their largest gazebo and it’s always open to our entire club. It is at this event that we take our annual picture with our club banner and offer an all-member ride through the flat streets of Chino.

Each year, our Picnic Committee decides the theme, location, entertainment, guest speakers, and food (usually catered). Each Premium Club Member will be provided a discounted or usually a complimentary lunch ticket. We provide background music, raffle gifts, a state-of-the-club address, and a surprise or two. If you would like to join our Picnic Committee, please contact us at info@bobie.org

BOBie Club Rewards Program

New in 2017, this program is designed to recognize those premium club members who wear our club kits and it also promotes our participating sponsors. Using a virtual raffle ticket program, and the dedication of our Leadership Team/Ride Leaders, we draw a winner on a monthly basis and post a photo of the winner, the sponsor-of-the-month, and the winning gift on our club Facebook Page, Instagram, and our BOBie Website. Rules of this program can be found here: (LINK the rules from Meetup Message Board and place somewhere on our website)

Look for this program to be offered in the months ahead in 2018.  Keep an eye out for announcements of this program on our website and your email.

InCycle Bicycles – BOBie Discount Program

Classifieds / Garage Sale – Sell your Bike Stuff!

NEW FOR 2018!  Watch for our new “Classifieds” section on our website. Many members have been asking for the ability to sell/donate some of their bike stuff. Only Premium Club Members will have access to post their items for sale or donation, but ALL BOBie members will be able to respond and make offers to the postings. This is a great opportunity to upgrade your gear!

Of course, we will have the printed disclaimers that our club is not responsible for the sale, condition, donation, or delivery of these items, and that you are to deal with the Seller directly and that the product they are selling is in no way associated with the BOBie Cycling Club. 

Infinity Bike Seat – Saddle Loaner Program

We have partnered with Infinity Bike Seat to provide loaners for our Premium Club Members, and a club discount for any member of our club who decide to make a purchase. Purchases are made by the members, not by the club. They are unique saddles and we invite you to check them out. We first saw them at Interbike several years ago before they were even made available. Check out Infinity on our http://bobie.org/programs/infinity-saddle-program/
