Membership Drive 2015

Dear Freewheelers Members,

Our Freewheelers of Spartanburg membership drive for 2015 is ready to begin.  I am pleased that membership dues are unchanged from last year:  $25 per individual or $35 for your entire family.  Click here to renew now

This year we are excited to offer you the opportunity to register for the Assault on Mount Mitchell EARLY.  An early Mount Mitchell registration PLUS the membership to the Freewheelers is $145.  This will save you $15 off the combined cost of club dues and A.O.M.M. registration AND you don’t have to worry about waiting until January for a passcode to register for Mount Mitchell! 

As a bonus:  If you register for the Assault on Mount Mitchell by December 31, 2014, you will be included in a drawing for the a 40th Anniversary kit including a jersey, a pair of shorts and socks.  Four winners will be drawn.

The membership drive will last from October 1 – December 31, 2014.  Keeping your Freewheelers membership active insures that you:

  1. Have access to our listserve for daily and weekly updates on rides, training and events;
  2. Are covered by the Club’s supplemental accident insurance for all Club rides and
  3. You receive a passcode for our signature rides, the Assaults on Mt. Mitchell and Marion.  Club members get to register before the general public. 

Our Events team has big plans for this year’s Assault on Mt. Mitchell!   The date is Monday, May 18, 2015.  It will be the 40th Anniversary and a sell-out is expected.  The National Park Service and the Blue Ridge Parkway limit the number of riders on the Parkway to 750 riders.  The best way to ensure your participation is to join/renew your membership to receive a passcode.  If you want to participate in the 40th Anniversary AOMM, click here to renew your Freewheelers membership to receive a passcode.  Family memberships receive two passcodes.

Managing this entire process is complex, but we want to give Freewheelers members the first opportunity to ride the Assault on Mt. Mitchell, so renew your membership now.

Thanks and ride safely!

Karl Johnson, President
