Just a reminder that the organization Bike Benefits allows local members ($5 lifetime dues through a sticker you buy for your helmet) to receive discounts at such local merchants such as Beezy’s, The Corner Brewery, Congdons Ace Hardware, Wurst Bar and many others.

Arbor Brewing in Ypsilanti (formerly known as the Corner Brewery) has been instrumental in Bike Ypsi rides since 2008. Many of our rides start and/or end there (Taco Tour, Fall Ride, Thursday night rides, e.g.), and, well, we also happen to often find ourselves there meeting (read: eating and drinking), briefing, de-briefing and making new friends.  ABC has also been a supporter of Bike Ypsi by doing awesome things like opening their doors for us early and/or donating foodstuffs to our Bike Ypsi Spring Ride. Thanks ya’ll!

The Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society (AABTS) organizes daily group rides for road and mountain bike enthusiasts—view our bimonthly ride calendar for details. We also participate in a variety of in- and out-of-state tours. We publish a member newsletter and host potluck dinners.

Common Cycle is a community-based organization empowering Ann Arbor to ride bicycles
by providing access to education, workspace, and resources.
