The Iron Butt Association (IBA) does not have membership in the traditional sense. We do not have yearly dues,
formal meetings or a monthly newsletter. The IBA is a little more loose knit organization than most clubs. Generally speaking
there are several ways to earn membership. The most notable is to be a finisher of the Iron Butt Rally or a successful finisher
of one of the other rides we sponsor, such as the Saddle Sore 1000. Rally workers and supporters are also granted membership
The Iron Butt Association publishes several documents about the Iron Butt Rally and Long-Distance Endurance
Riding, including our hottest title, the "Archive of Wisdom", which contains a list of Long Distance Riding tips from our
most seasoned, veteran riders.

that this is not a high-volume mail list. Mailings are typically made once a month. To get on the list, e-mail your request
