These special category rides are non-TCBC rides that are eligible for TCBC mileage credit, but are not covered by TCBC insurance. Outreach rides are designed to increase our club’s visibility in and support of non-pledge biking events in the broader biking community. A TCBC ride leader will be present at qualifying Outreach Rides to allow members to sign up for mileage, but it is the sole responsibility of participating members to sign up for the event and pay the registration fee. The organizers of the event are solely responsible for its quality and safety. Members are strongly encouraged to wear their TCBC jerseys when participating in Outreach Rides and ride in a manner that reflects favorably upon TCBC.

Most TCBC rides are day rides starting in or near the Twin Cities metropolitan area. In addition to regular day rides, TCBC also recognizes and provides mileage credit for certain other types of rides, including outreach rides and overnight trips. To ensure that these special rides are available to all TCBC members, advance notice must be provided to members. To ensure that riders have a safe and enjoyable ride for both regular rides and special rides, TCBC also requires that riders on all regular and special rides sign in for each ride, attend a ride briefing at a set time with the ride leader, and wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet. This policy defines the types of special rides and outlines special rules and considerations that apply to these ride categories.

Bike U events are social and educational and are usually scheduled in the off season.
