Membership Benefits

  • Opportunities to meet, socialize with, and learn from other multisport athletes.

  • Weekly club workouts, including brick (bike-run) workouts (with a supervised transition area), bike time-trials, and open water swimming (with permit from the NFTA, and safety equipment on hand).

  • You will be covered by USAT general liability insurance when participating in BTC events.

  • Substantial discounts and special offers from our club partners, including discounts on some local races.

  • Opportunities to purchase official BTC apparel and other merchandise.

  • Access to bike boxes that can be borrowed to transport or ship your bicycle to an out-of-area race. We have also created a document with information regarding bike shipping considerations, complete with an example using our club bike box, and Tom's Pro Bike has produced a very nice YouTube video that shows the complete process of packing a bike. Please contact our bike box coordinator for more information or to reserve a box.
