What Happens When Opportunity Knocks

Written by Patrick Stelte - January 2017

From the Membership Desk:

It is membership renewal time!  3RVS memberships are valid from January1st to December 31st annually.  If you have not already renewed for 2017 now is the perfect time so you don’t miss out on your member discount at local bike shops as you gear up for spring riding.  Renewal is still only $20 for an individual or $30 for a family and can be easily done on-line for a small convenience fee at  or you may print your membership form at and mail it in to the P.O. Box on the form.  Don’t forget that when completing the form as a family both listed adults need to sign the form to be valid.
