Benefits of being a New England Randonneurs Member (Updated for 2014):
- You show that you support NER and our events.
- $5 discount on events, $10 discount on a Season Pass.
- You are eligible for members-only events and swag.
- Free participation in our monthly P-12 series.
- Voting rights for NER elections.
Membership is only $15 with no extra BikeReg fees.
There are two ways to become a member:
Method 1: You can purchase a membership online at BikeReg. Anyone is welcome to purchase a NER membership.
Method 2: If you volunteered on an event in 2013 you should have been sent a coupon for free 2014 Membership and a free 2014 Season Pass. Please note that you will still need to register on BikeReg in 2014 in order to be an active member and/or Season Pass holder. (Contact volunteer Coordinator Emily O’Brien if you volunteered but didn’t get a coupon.)
If you Volunteer in 2014, you’ll have a free membership in 2015!
We do not require that members volunteer but we strongly encountage it. Our events only happen due to the commitment of our volunteers. Volunteer duties include staffing a control, leading an event, verifying the route cue, shuttling supplies, etc. While many volunteer duties preclude riding on the day of the event, volunteers can pre-ride an event up to two weeks in advance and still receive RUSA/ACP credit.
Membership Fine Print: The membership discount is only good for member themselves, not their spouse, children, etc. The team events entry fee still applies unless all team members are also NER members. A membership is not the same as a NER Season Pass and membership alone is only good for a discount on our normal 100-600k series events.
Visit our page of volunteer needs to see what sorts of things you can help with. Also check out the individual event pages for requests for help on those particular events.
We might also have board member positions open. Contact the NER President for more info.
