The BAT (BICYCLIST Adventure Team) is a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to informing, guiding and promoting 'personal-transportation options' for recreation, competition and as a viable means of sustainable transportation for the individual. It is led by Chris Reynolds, Kelley O'Toole, and Victor Prestinary (sometimes).

We publish a free
magazine, produce a weekly podcast, and manage the largest calendar of organized riding events, races and rides, free to view and register.

There's more information about the BAT, and a FAQ and welcome letter from Chris over here!
