How do I create a Springbike Family Member Account?
Each family account has one primary member account for the person who pays for the membership, plus separate sub-accounts for each family member. Each family member can use their sub-account to login with their email address and password to print their membership card, view member-only content, etc.After you join Springbike as a family member, follow these instructions to login to your primary Springbike account and create additional family members.1. Visit the Springbike website (http://design.springbike.org/)2. Go to the “Members” menu.3. Login with your primary email address and password (this is the account that paid for the family membership)4. Click on “Subscriptions” menu immediately below “Member Account Information“5. Your active “Family” membership should be shown. Click the “Family Sub-Accounts” link next to this membership6. Any existing Family Sub-Accounts will be shown. Note: If the family member already exists, have them follow steps 1-3 above and choose “Forgot Password” on the login page to reset their password.7. Click the “Add Family Sub-Account” button to setup a new account for a family member.8.

What do you have for beginners?
During Daylight Savings time periods, we sponsor beginner rides Monday through Thursday nights. We have a designated Ride Leader who will insure no one gets left behind. These rides leave from the same location at the same time as the regular weeknight rides. Details are on our Weeknight Ride Page.

We meet only during the off riding season (October-March). Currently we meet on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Springfield Brewing Company. Check our home page for details. Meetings feature a specific topic and speaker.
While we don’t have formal meetings in the Summer, we do have several club Cookouts after our weeknight rides rotating through all of them – burgers, hot dogs, chips, drinks, and good fellowship.
What other activities can I (or my spouse, kids, etc.) be involved with besides riding my bike and attending meetings?
We have many events throughout the year that could use your help. Such as helping with logistics on long rides (rest stops, sag support, etc.), bicycle education and advocacy, or simply helping to man a booth at an like Arts Fest.
