Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club (PMBC)

 

The Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club is a non-profit social organization that leads regularly scheduled weekly bicycle rides and other special events for the benefit of its members.  We promote and provide venues for safe and legal bicycling, primarily in the greater Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area.


PMBC Annual Election Notice

In December, it will be time for our members to elect officers to our Club's Board. The following officers have agreed to continue in 2021 in their current positions:

  • Treasurer - Kerry White
  • Secretary - Denise Thienpont
I have decided to step down as President, and Jim Schlueter has indicated that he's planning to retire from his current role as Vice President as well.

Our current storekeeper, Bob Litchfield, has offered to run for President, and Larry Lyon will be on the ballot for the Vice President position.

This is a great opportunity to get involved. If you would like to volunteer in planning and leading Club activities, please contact the PMBC Board.

Due to the COVID situation, it will be 
impractical to meet as a Club in person for the election. Fortunately, we have the tools in this website to conduct this years' election fully online. Members will be contacted via e-mail when the election is scheduled to take place in December.

It's been fun to lead but I'd rather be a mentor at this stage of my life.

Riding During the Pandemic

  • We encourage everyone to educate themselves on the risks involved with group riding during a pandemic by following the guidelines in this COVID-19 Safety Checklist
  • Following this, we are leaving it up to our Ride Leaders to decide whether they would like to lead group rides. Ride Leaders may or may not choose to include the option of dining at a restaurant and they may or may not choose to join in the dining fun, should it be offered.
  • We have asked our ride leaders to perform contact tracing should they learn of someone who came down with COVID-19 following a group ride where others may have been exposed. It is important to note that they are not allowed to reveal a name unless they have permission.

 


 


Our Club's insurance policies only cover riders and ride leaders for rides that are conducted and organized by the Club for all club members. They do not cover, nor are they designed for rides organized by individuals for a limited number of participants.

You are invited to explore this website for information about our club and its activities.  We welcome new members to join our Club.

PMBC Online Clothing Store by Giordana

Open Sunday, November 8 through Sunday, November 22, 2020

 

 

Now is the time to order that new PMBC bike jersey, kit, warm weather gear, or an early Christmas present for yourself or for your bike friend/family member. PMBC has partnered with Giordana for the club bike clothing needs. The online store can be accessed through this link:

PMBC Online Clothing Store

All orders will be bulk shipped to Bob Litchfield, the PMBC Clothing Manager. 
 Orderees will need to arrange to meet with Bob to receive your items.

The details:

You must place your orders while the store is open. When the store closes, Giordana will compile and process all the orders placed. We will provide to you via email and on the club website the link to get to the online store once it opens. When you connect to the online store, you will see the full selection of PMBC club clothing items that are available to order. When you place your order, you will also pay right then with a credit/debit card through the secure website directly to Giordana. The bulk order will be shipped back to me and I will distribute the items out to you. Most items have a 4-week turn-around plus shipping time. What you order in November will most likely arrive in early to mid-January (due to factory closures during Christmas). Some more special items may have a 6 to 8-week turn-around and will come in a second shipment.

All clothing items will be our standard Arizona flag club design in almost the exact same colors as we have now. Two new items you will see in the selection will be baseball style caps and a long sleeve jacket – this is not a long sleeve jersey but a real riding jacket for the colder weather. The long sleeve jerseys will also be available too and they will be of a little bit heavier material than the short sleeve jerseys. One other new option you will see is that for most of the items, you will be able to select them to come in a reflective material. If you were at the last quarterly meeting we had before we had to cancel them due to COVID-19, they had samples there of the reflective material. It is the same color as the standard material but has reflective markers embedded in the material that you really do not see unless car lights are shining on it – they are really cool !!!
