Membership

In 2016, Bike Mansfield became a registered non-profit corporation in Connecticut and in January 2017, the organization received approval as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization from the Internal Revenue Service. This designation enables us to raise funds within the community through tax deductible donations — a benefit to all that will enable us to grow. Up to this point personal contributions from members and directors have covered more than $600 in filing fees and expenses.

While Bike Mansfield is an all-volunteer organization, we need support to cover ongoing costs associated with running the organization and for achieving  our mission of having Mansfield be nationally recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community. Our Board of Directors recently approved a change to our by-laws allowing us to create an annual structure of individual and business/organization paid memberships.

What’s in it for you?

In addition to the great feeling of supporting our efforts to create a bike friendly Mansfield, you will receive discounts and other member benefits throughout the year. While we are still developing these benefits, our goal is to offer benefits valued in excess of the cost of your annual membership.

Please join us in representing the interests of bicycle enthusiasts for as little as $15 per year. This is one small investment that will have a big impact on the quality of life and health of our community. Read about the membership structure below and join us now!
