In order to participate in the Bike Shop Program, you must have proof that you are a member of Sound Cyclists Bicycle Club and present it to participating bike shops. Print it out and trim it so you can carry it in your wallet when visiting the shops. Remember to print your name and sign the card. You can find the 2016 card in the membership portal, once you have signed-in as a member.
Sound Cyclists has insurance protection through the League of American Bicyclists insurance program. Members participating in club rides and registered participants in Special Events (such as the Bloomin Metric®) have:
• Accident Medical Coverage: $10,000 per person per accident excess of a $500 per claim deductible and excess of any other valid and collectable insurance
• Accidental Death & Dismemberment: $5,000 per person per accident.
In addition the club maintains General Liability and Directors and Officers coverage. Ride leaders (who must be paid-up members) are included under the General Liability coverage.
If you would like to file a medical claim for an accident, please contact the Treasurer.
The membership forms page contains several forms to enable you to enable under-age riders to participate in club rides, obtain subject releases to enable use of images for the club, and obtain reimbursement for authorized expenses.

The club has available to its members sturdy shipping boxes for those traveling with their bikes. (Details). These boxes will be available on a first come, first served basis. In the event of a booking conflict, the box will go to the member having a record of volunteering for the club.
