    You mean a financial supporter? No. Money certainly helps the club and local trails, but it's not required at all. You can join the forum for free. If you want to get envolved there are plenty of oppertunities to help physically and/or financially, but anyone is welcome to attend the group rides, events, trail building days and so on.

    It's a very welcoming group and if you want to make riding buddies it's a perfect place to start. Once the season gets rolling there will be weekly group rides at Cam Rock (20 minutes east of Madison) that accommodate every skill level; last year it was Monday evenings.

    Right now it's spring trail work season, showing up for a work day will make a great first impression Tools are provided (and often food too), all you need to provide for yourself are a pair of work gloves.

    This season you can expect rides and meet ups Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays on occasion.

    The Cam Rock Monday rides start next week. Official Middleton time is between the school years but people gather before and after that. The decades of Wed. time trials at Blackhawk are being replaced by Wednesday as a general community day (ride, eat, walk the dog, jam some tunes). There will be ride meetups called for Quarry Ridge and Blue Mound some Thursdays.

    For weekends there will be repeat of the "BBB" rides and a festival type weekend. The madcitydirt.org (.com) site for details.

    There's more opportunity for fun and riding opportunities than people probably realize. Paid membership isn't mandatory but that and giving time are what make it all happen.

    I'll be moving to Madison in a month as well. Hope to get out and do plenty of riding! Thanks for the link, always participated in various groups and things while here in IA. Any smaller trails in and around the city?

    There is a small trail system on the south side of town and another in neighboring Middleton (check out madcitydirt, it has the details). Otherwise, not really besides a few technically off-limits trails in parks.

    I am pretty new to the area as well. Looks like Camrock will be my ride one week then Blue Mounds the next if they keep the Monday and Thursday respectively.

    Assuming it dries out enough, I believe the start time for the group ride this Monday is 6pm. Might be 5:30 though.... better give CamRock Sport a call to find out.

    I have a car. I made a choice. I ride my bike.

    Welcome to Madtown! Monday night rides at Camrock Sport (and post-ride brews) are perfect way to meet club members and get in on the scene.
