Volunteers
HBC:
As a member of the Harrisburg Bicycle Club, there are many opportunities for each member to get involved.  The Bike Club is strictly a volunteer organization, that needs everyone's help.  We are always searching for new ideas, new rides, and new members. You are now part of a great organization and with your contribution, it can only become better.  Volunteering also helps you understand the inter-workings of the Bike Club and a chance to meet other members and make new friends.
