Hightailers Membership Benefit
One of the benefits of being a Memphis Hightailer is our secondary insurance on any official Hightailers ride – whether it is a weekly ride or one of our special rides. However, your membership must be active at the time of the ride.
Why are we mentioning this? We keep being advised by members who find out their membership had expired, but they don’t seem to have received any renewal notices. This has been an ongoing concern for a couple of years now. These renewal notices are system generated and may be getting flagged as spam by your email host.
How can you check if you are current? Just try to log into the Hightailers website. If you can sign in with no problems, you are probably active, and you can verify this in your profile. If it has expired, you will be taken to the renew membership page.
Join the Bluff City Training Team
The Bluff City Training Team (formerly known as the BCB100 Training Team) is entering its 10th Year and we have all kinds of exciting news for this training season.
First, we will be partnering with BPC to provide an even greater level of coaching than in the past. We look forward to working with Bryant and Dale and all the folks at BPC.
Second, as you can tell with our name change, we will be able to help any cyclist this year planning on a long distance ride through Fall, 2020. Of course if you join the Training Team we will have an extra special Ride Fee for our own BCB 100 Ride happening on October 10, 2020 - only $20.
We will also have special pricing for the West Fight On Ride and the Wolf River Conservancy's Cycle The Greenway. Only available during Training Team registration!
And we will be able to help train for all of the area's other long rides including the inaugural St. Jude Ironman 70.3!
We encourage all cyclists of all abilities to train with us, from the fast and the experienced to those just wanting to join a group ride for the first time.
This will be a very special year and the team will be limited, so you need to join when registration opens on March 1 and will close on April 30, 2020.
Not a member of the Memphis Hightailers? The cost for the team is $225, which includes a one-year Memphis Hightailers membership.
