Adventure Cycling Association free membership

I'm a 30-year member of and volunteer for Adventure Cycling Association, a national non-profit bicycle travel organization, and they have asked me to help spread the word about their mission which is "To inspire people of all ages to travel by bicycle for fitness, fun, and self-discovery."

Adventure Cycling researches and creates cycling maps, has in-depth bicycle touring info on their website, publishes a bicycle travel magazine called Adventure Cyclist and the Cyclists' Yellow Pages, a trip planning guide, and runs organized tours. They also have been central in the development of the recently approved plans for a US Bicycle Route System. They have offered 100 free one year memberships for me to disperse to people who are not currently members. Membership is normally $40.

If you are interested in learning more about Adventure Cycling and their mission go to: www.adventurecycling.org

To take advantage of this offer you can sign-up at: https://www.adventurecycling.org/mem...o.cfm?r=Y6-F12

My February issue has a big write up on Italy and the Netherlands, so I would think so.

All,

Thanks for the positive comments. There was a great response and all of the free memberships are now taken up. We increased the number to 125 during this event but of course FREE is pretty popular.

And yes, this was available to only US mailing addresses.

The short answer is that this is the the target audience for this offer.

I'm a volunteer, not part of the marketing department and so was not part of the discussion.
