We have scheduled rides (Road Trips) one day each month during the riding season. We define the riding season to be April through October. The Road Trips are determined at the beginning of the season by the Excursion Kitty (or Kitties). (See “Officers” for specific responsibilities for the Excursion Kitty.)
The monthly Road Trips vary depending on the destination, but usually between 4 and 6 hours. We take the necessary gas breaks while on the monthly Road Trips.
Before the season begins, an email will be sent to all members as soon as the Road Trip destinations are determined by the Excursion Kitty (or Kitties.) About a week before the Road Trip, an Event will be created on the private KKMC Facebook page providing all the details of the trip. In addition to the Facebook Event, the details will be posted on the website’s Member Only Event page. We request that members arrive 30 minutes before the departure time. Bikes must have a full tank of gas and be mechanically sound.
Yes. Currently, the charitable organization KKMC supports is the Wichita Family Crisis Center, which is an organization that provides safety and support to women and children escaping domestic violence. These events typically include an ice cream social and collection of needed items and treating the women and children who reside at the Center to a day at the Sedgwick County Zoo. The decision as to how KKMC will support the Wichita Family Crisis Center is determined each year at the Kitty Konference, the Club’s annual meeting, usually held in February or March.
KKMC does not sell shirts with pre-printed logos on them; however, we do wear Kitty shirts! Let me explain...we ask members to purchase their own shirt(s) of a style and color they prefer and deliver them to Member Alice Friedman, or in her absence the Founder, Janice, during the months of April, July or September. The Member has three options for having a logo applied. She can have the shirt screen printed, have a direct to garment logo applied or purchase a logo transfer for $9.00 and we will have a local vendor apply it to the shirt. Janice or Alice can explain the pricing for the screen printing and direct to garment options. The completed shirt(s) will be delivered to the member at the next ride she attends. We do require that each member wear a Kitty shirt on all rides and at all Club sanctioned events. New members are asked to have shirts made for them as soon as reasonably possible.
Yes, the annual dues are $30.00 and are due at the time of making application and every April thereafter. The Club’s Founder, Janice, will invoice you in March for the new season’s dues. If you are joining the Club in September, the dues are prorated. If you join the Club in October, full dues of $30.00 must be paid; however, it will be applied to the next year’s dues payment.
It's easy. Simply complete the Membership Application from the website. Dues can be paid by PayPal or Venmo. Applications will not be processed until the payment is made. You can contact the Founder, Janice, by clicking the Contact Us page regarding any questions you might have regarding the Club or membership. After Janice receives your application and dues, she will contact you for additional information.
