My club membership here is in the West Florida Wheelmen, a great group of bicyclist. I am below the level of their rides right now I still join and volunteer for them because they advocate for our rights and for improved conditions in our area as well as their racing activities. They work with the City of Pensacola on developing a long term plan for cycling access and are heavy into my favorite group, The Wounded Warrior Foundation, with rides that benefit the group. They also conduct education/advocacy events in the community. Just being a member of the organization and lending my voice as well as hands to them benefits other cyclist in the area so it is just something I feel is the right thing to do. If you have a club in your area that is your kind of organization and you fit in with them, I'd say to join them and to help make a difference.
