According to recent posts on the Utah Cycling Association’s and Southwest Idaho Cycling Association’s Facebook pages, USA Cycling has announced an offer to support grassroot cycling clubs and provide extra value for their club riders.
A membership with USA Cycling grants you access to the USAC community which includes discounts on dozens of cycling brands, access to virtual training tools, and a race license with VIP benefits for thousands of races every year.
Along with these benefits, your membership allows USA Cycling to support cycling in all its forms. As the national governing body associated with both the UCI and the IOC, USA Cycling helps train Olympians, oversees the sport at both the amateur and domestic levels in the United States, encourages youth riding and champions inclusion in all aspects of the sport.
A $40 standard membership gets you all these perks with a novice (formerly Cat 5) race license, a $60 family membership gets everyone in the household these benefits, and an $80 premium membership includes everything plus a license that qualifies you to race above the novice category.
Premium licenses associated with a $60 family membership will be an additional $40 per individual; so a family membership with two Cat 3 riders would be a total of $140 vs. $160 for two individual memberships/licenses.
Until June 30, 2020 individuals can use code CLUB2020 to save an additional $10 off a USA Cycling 12-month rolling membership and, if riders identify which local club they are affiliated with, that club will save money on their 2021 club dues.
