Cycling KC supports bicycling advocacy by actively engaging on your behalf to make streets safer for all of us on two wheels. We also donate every year to organizations that improve cycling, especially for the underprivileged. Your ride fees and membership support cycling in meaningful and positive ways. Access to a grass roots, well-informed group allows you to personally participate in issues that affect your cycling life. We also advocate for you via media appearances focusing on bicycle safety where it concerns drivers, and by airing public service announcements to help influence motorist behavior for the better.
Meet other cycling enthusiasts at our rides and social events. Enjoy quarterly rides and picnics. Have fun with cycling friends at the club’s annual banquet. You can contribute to Metro cycling by serving on the club’s Board or one of the committees. It’s a great way to give back and make a lot of new friends, too!
All member households on the rolls February 1st of each year will receive a 1 year subscription to bicycling magazine. New members wishing to subscribe can click here to subscribe.

General Liability Insurance
(1)Even when you follow the rules of the road, there are risks associated with cycling. If you injure a pedestrian or another cyclist or damage someone’s property, they can sue you personally to recover damages. The League of American Bicyclist has given us examples where this has happened, so it’s not theoretical. Your homeowner’s policy may or may not cover such a lawsuit. Cycling Kansas City provides insurance coverage for its members (and NOT for non-members) for these types of situations, and it is provided through a company that specializes in managing exactly these types of claims. The club’s policy provides up to $1 million for an accident that occurs during a club ride (subject to a $3M annual maximum). The policy covers both legal fees to defend you and damages should you be found liable (or if a settlement is reached).
Accident Medical Insurance
(2)In addition to the liability coverage we just discussed, every member (and NOT non-members) has insurance coverage for medical bills if he or she is injured during a club ride. This coverage pays after your own health insurance. But, if you don’t have health insurance, it can cover your bills up to $5,000 per accident after a $500 deductible. Or, if you do have health insurance, the club’s policy can help pay deductibles, co-pays, or bills not covered under that program. In addition, the policy includes a $5,000 accidental death benefit which would go to your beneficiaries if you were involved in a fatal accident.
