Our vision is for residents and visitors of all ability levels to enjoy frequent and safe cycling throughout the Whatcom County region. To carry out this vision, the club mission is to encourage safe cycling for recreation, transportation, or racing - on roads and trails - in an around Whatcom County.
Join us and help us reach our goals:
- Increase the number of people bicycling regularly by: conducting and supporting recreational and educational bicycle events and rides and helping all types of people enjoy bicycling.
- Encourage safe and enjoyable bicycling by: educating the public on safe bicycling skills and sharing the road and communicate issues of interest to bicyclists.
- Advise decision makers on facilities and policies that maintain or improve safe bicycling conditions on roadways and trails.
- Promote bicycles as environmentally friendly transportation means.
We are the umbrella group supporting all kinds of bicycling in our region:
- Recreation: Mt. Baker Bicycle Club hosts weekly, monthly and a variety of annual recreation rides for members and guests throughout the year. Rides are oriented to all levels of ability including beginners, social riders, commuters, touring and high level race training.
- Education: Bicycling safely is a learned skill. The Club offers courses in partnership with the Bellingham Parks Department by instructors certified by the League of American Bicyclists. We work with local groups to host bike skills rodeos at annual community fairs. Funds raised by club activities help support training of more teachers, and teaching bicycle skills to kids means a lifetime of safer roads. Encouraging bicycling is an important part of the Club's education work. Our annual Bike to Work and School Day promotion has helped hundreds of commuters "Be part of the solution" launching careers of folks bicycling to work or cycling their kids to school.
- Trails: In partnership with Whatcom TrailNet and the Whatcom Independent Mountain Pedalers (WHIMPs), the Club helps advocate for development of a complete trail and mountain-bike network throughout Whatcom County.
- Race Training: Weekly club rides offer new and seasoned high-level riders the chance to improve team riding skills. Whether training for professional-class races or for endurance events or tours, these weekly training rides give Club members the extra edge to compete and win.
