Bike Indianapolis wouldn’t exist without members and their contributions. Your membership dollars go toward the strength and growth of Bike Indianapolis as we strive to create more bike riders thru advocacy, education, and riding.

You can join for as little as $35 a year.

By contributing to Bike Indianapolis, you demonstrate that you care about the issues facing bike riders in our community and you want to make bicycling safe and fun for everyone in central Indiana. Bike Indianapolis will leverage your membership dollars to build a stronger bicycling community and engage in initiatives focused on infrastructure, education, and great destinations in Indianapolis. The bigger our membership, the more apparent our message and our needs as bike riders become, and the more likely those needs are to be met by our city governments.

Joining Bike Indianapolis is a great way to get involved. Here is a list of volunteer opportunities coming up. If you have talents or skills you want to offer to help, please contact us about it.

• Organize and manage Indianapolis’ annual Bike To Work Day every May.
• Hosted Bike Bucket Workshops
• Staffed educational and informational tables and workshops around the city supporting our Riders In The Know education program.
• Began Indy Bike Register to register bikes, and allowing riders to report bikes that have been stolen.
• Launched the ‘I Like Bike’ campaign in advance of the 2015 city/county elections to promote awareness of the candidate’s positions on cycling. Campaign will continue for future elections.

With your help, we will accomplish more in the coming months and years including:

  • Promoting safe riding education for cyclists and outreach to motorists with the Riders In The Know education programs.
  • Encouraging more Hoosiers to use their bicycles for transportation and recreation
  • Working with the City of Indianapolis to update the Bicycle Master Plan
  • Advocating for more bicycle parking and infrastructure around the Indianapolis area

Why does that matter to you?

Your support means increased bike traffic and sales. When people ride bicycles more and drive less, more money stays in the local economy. Find out how bicycles can mean more for your business: Bicycles Mean Business
