PeopleForBikes Coalition membership dues are one tenth of 1% (0.001) of U.S. bicycle market revenue (Example: $1,000,000 annual revenue x 0.001 = $1,000). For companies with less than $500,000 in annual revenue, the minimum membership due is $500 annually. View a sample invoice. Questions about dues? Please contact Rod Judd.
Your membership begins when we receive your payment and expires one year later. Dues and revenue disclosures are strictly CONFIDENTIAL and will not be shared with anyone.
Please note that all BPSA member companies are now part of the PeopleForBikes Coalition. For the first year following the merger (beginning July 1), companies will pay what they paid during the previous 12 months (whether it was BPSA dues only, PFB dues only, or dues to both). Instead of receiving two separate invoices (or three, if a company also contributes to the BPSA e-bike fund), each company will receive one invoice and will remit payment to PFBC. In year two, companies will be asked to make one combined membership dues payment according to a scale that is based on annual U.S. bicycle-related sales.
