There are three age categories for the Birthday Club.
Vanilla: age 50-59
Peaches and Cream: age 60-69
Rocky Road: age 70 and over
Each 2016 qualifier will be entered in drawing among category qualifiers at the annual awards meeting (i.e. January 16, 2017).
Qualification for 2017 opened January 1, 2017
"Birthday Club" membership must be renewed each year.
Members over the age of 75 may deduct a mile for every year over 75. Example: a member who is 78 years old only has to ride 72 miles to qualify for the "Birthday Club".
Members with birthdays in January or February have until March 15 to ride their age.
The Smithfield Challenge is a designated "Catch Up" day. Anyone’s birthday which falls before the May ride, may qualify for membership on the ride.
- The Surry Century is designated as "Open Season" day. Any Members may qualify within their age category for the Birthday Club during the ride.
- Members who volunteer to work either the Smithfield Challenge or Surry Century may select the date of their choice as their "Catch Up" day.
PBA members younger than 50 are encouraged to the ride the Metric on the Smithfield Challenge and the Century during the Surry Century. It will not be long until you qualify for the "Birthday Club".
