Why Become a Member?
If you believe in what we do, you can help support it. We take the lead in representing cyclists in the state legislature, and in working directly with agencies like VDOT and DCR.
Attend VBF Retreats
2-3 times a year we spend a weekend at a state park lodge or similar setting, to brainstorm, network, and ride with fellow bike advocates and representatives from government agencies:
- Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)
- Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR)
- Rails to Trails Conservancy
- International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA)
- League of American Bicyclists
- BikeWalk Virginia
- Friends of the Rivers of Virginia
- Bike clubs from all over
These networking opportunities can greatly facilitate working toward your advocacy goals. Get together with the people who make things happen, and become part of the process. Besides, where else are you going to find an all-inclusive weekend getaway for $50?
