What we're about

The Denver Bicycle Touring Club, Inc. (DBTC) is the original bicycling club of the Denver Metro area. DBTC is a non-profit corporation run by volunteers. The Club promotes recreational and commuter cycling, bike safety, and education of the general public in cycling matters. The Club organizes and sponsors weekend and weekday rides. Rides are divided into categories of interest including ROAD, MTB and FUN. The Club publishes a monthly newsletter, available to members, of its activities and ride schedule. The DBTC maps (Bicycling the Greater Denver Area) are sold at most bike shops.

If you love cycling and want to join others that do, we are the group for you. We do Fun Rides, Road Rides (INT), MTB Rides, and Out of Town Tours. We invite you to enjoy your first ride as a Guest. After that, we request you join the Denver Bicycle Touring Club - annual dues are $35.00 for a single and $50.00 for a Family Membership.

Anyone interested in bicycling is eligible to join DBTC. Membership applications are in every newsletter, and Club brochures can be found in some metro Denver bicycle shops. If you would like a sample of the current newsletter, e-mail us (webmaster@dbtc.org) at www.dbtc.org (http://www.dbtc.org/). Memberships are for 12 months from the time you join.

To post & lead a ride, you need to be an active member the Denver Bicycle Touring Club. Please go to www.dbtc.org to find the membership form and other information and events that our club sponsors.
