Bike Shop Discounts

Discounts that we receive from the bike shop and eateries is a gift that they give to the Springbike Club members. The rule is plain and simple - if you want the discount, please show your membership card at time of checkout.  Make a photo of it on your phone or print a copy and carry it with you in your money container. If you have lost your card and need a new copy,  Brandon Freeman and he will send you out a new one. Enjoy The Ride! Tony Miller

Online membership/renewals

Our online page which uses PayPal is now up. Here it is. (Of course you can still join/renew by mail).

Volunteer Page

If you want to help make our events successful, navigate here and see how you can help. You would be surprised how many people it takes. We ask every member to forgo one ride a year and volunteer. It can be a lot of fun too.

It’s official--Missouri WILL have a 2nd cross-state trail

Ameren has agreed to railbank the entire Rock Island line from Beaufort (near Washington, MO) west. That means Missouri will have a SECOND cross-state trail--the 213-mile Rock Island Trail--to rival the Katy Trail. When complete, The Rock Island Trail State Park will interconnect with the Katy Trail in two places, making an amazing 453-mile trail system stretching across Missouri. Click here to read all the details and see the maps.

Springbike Social Networking Update

Perhaps you know we've had a growing Facebook presence for a while. Just look for Springbikeclub. Although we also have a Twitter account, it hasn't had very much activity. So... perhaps a little promotion is in order. How about a few pertinent Twitter hashtags.

Want to alert Springbike members of a dog to watch out for? Lets use the hashtag #sb_dog - and if you want to alert Springbike members of a road closing, bad pavement, detour, etc. Lets use the hashtag #sb_road

Let's see if it catches on...


Route Maps and Planning your Rides

We’ve had a web page for route planning with maps for a long time (hidden under
the Special Interest Tab above), but Ozark Greenways has put up a new web site, LetsGoSmart.org that really does have great up-to-date information.


Want to re-ride some of our recent event routes?

Go to our Rides Archives Page. . here you’ll find the maps, cue sheets, and .gpx files. We can’t say that the road markings are all still there but you will have the cue sheets and maps.
