The Club's focus is group riding, on roads, trails, and off-road (mountain biking). Members lead rides most days of the week, all year long. Lengths vary from less than 10 miles to over 100 miles. Speeds are scheduled in four ranges: 10 mph and slower, 10-13 mph, 13-16 mph, or 16+ mph. On Wednesdays and Saturdays we have "Slow & Easy" rides scheduled in addition to our other rides. There are also overnight, multi-day rides. The rides are mostly in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia. Our members sometimes participate in tours in more distant locations such as Death Valley, California and "Bike & Barge" trips in Europe. Club member commuting and group mileages are tracked, with a grand total since 1965 over 2 million miles. Club meetings can feature slide shows of bicycle trips, discussions of cycling safety, and tips on repair, equipment and routes. BEBC meets several times a year, including a banquet meeting in January, a picnic in August and ride leaders' socials at other times. All other meetings are scheduled as announced in newsletter and on web. As of Jan. 1, 2007, the fee for receiving mailed paper copies of the newsletter is $5/year due to printing costs or free from our website! Annual dues are $15 for individual or $20 for family.
