Bike Shop Leader

We’ll automatically make you a partner when you become a Bike Shop Leader!  We believe that a Bike Austin membership activates people on bikes as community leaders by growing our movement to making Austin a safer and better city to ride.  What if every bike came with a Bike Austin membership?  Take it a step further and issue each bike with a membership, like our partnership with Yellow Bike Project.  We’ll discount our $35 membership to $20 at point of sale.  Contact Shavone Otero for logistics.

Bike Austin Membership Sales Incentive Program

Can’t swing any of two above?  You can still make a difference!  In an effort to grow the movement in activating the bike community as advocates through our membership program, we want to push membership to reach 2k members by 2018!  And we need your help.  Check out more on this program here (link PDF to program 2-pager).

At point of sale, mention Bike Austin membership as an option.
