The Time Has Come- BATS Membership Renewal and New Member Time!

Posted on Posted in Blog

The time has come to remind you to RENEW Your Membership or JOIN BATS! Membership runs from April 1st, 2018 through March 31st, 2019. You don’t have to be a mountain biker to join. BATS manages the trails for multi-use, whether you walk with your family or dog, run, hike, snowshoe, ski or bike- help us keep these trails in tip-top shape and available for you! Thank you landowners and volunteers that have helped us get this far! 

Every year, our parent-chapter, the Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA) works with the business community to bring you a little kick-back.  Need more convincing, behold, the 2018/19 Member Benefits Package: vmba.org/benefits.

Special thanks to these local businesses who have provided BATS/VMBA Members Chapter Benefits again this year:

Harvest Brewing ($3 pints!!!)
Highlander Bicycle  ( 10% of Service!!! 15% off in-stock, non-sale clothing!!!)

Steps to Join or Renew:

  1. Visit VMBA’s website and Choose BATS as your Primary Chapter

  2. Chose a secondary chapter (nearby club) if you so choose, or their is an point to join a Catamount Trail Association Chapter through the Joint Winter/Summer Membership (DHASH in Readsboro would appreciate it).***
