We invite you to join or renew your membership in the BICYCLE TOUR NETWORK. The BTN collectively represents hundreds of recreational bicycle tours, events and destinations throughout the world. From multi-day bicycle events to one-day century rides, from small boutique cycling tours to weekend cycling festivals and from scenic biking destinations to advocacy events the BTN provides a service that matches touring cyclists with the best tours available in the world.
The BTN was formerly known as the National Bicycle Tour Directors Association and was formed 28 years ago by a small core of ride directors for professional development, marketing and networking purposes. It has grown to include more than 100 organizations that direct nearly 350 bicycle rides and tours across North America. The primary purpose of BTN is to bring together the directors, coordinators, and organizers of multi-day bicycle tours throughout North America, including Canada and Mexico, Europe, and Asia to share ideas, learn ways to improve their events and promote responsible cycling.
Membership in the BTN is required in order to be listed in the directory and to list your bicycle touring events here at www.bicycletournetwork.com. Membership in the BTN is open to individuals, businesses and organizations directly involved with the management of bicycle events/tours and bicycle tourism. Membership fees range from $100 to $300 per year, depending on the category of your event or organization. (See membership dues table below.)
