We offer a variety of group rides. Our group ride schedule provides the opportunity to participate within a friendly, structured environment where cyclists can improve their cycling skills and fitness, and enjoy meeting others who share their passion.
For the safety and enjoyable riding experience of all involved, we request that all group riders familiarize themselves with the BCC Ride Guide which outlines general rules and expectations that are to be upheld during all Brant Cycling Club organized rides and events.
We encourage all riders to read through the ride descriptions thoroughly to determine which group is most appropriate for their riding level.
Waivers & Fees
In order to participate in BCC rides or events, every rider must purchase Ontario Cycling Association Insurance ($44) and BCC Club membership ($30). Click here to register and follow the prompt to purchase insurance and membership. Upon purchase of these two items, you will receive an electronic membership card. Print this card and bring with you to every club ride/event. Before departing on a BCC group ride/event, each rider MUST be able to present his/her membership card.
Give us a try! “Try Out Rides”
The Ontario Cycling Association (OCA) is working with clubs, like ours, to host “Try Out Ride”opportunities for non-members. This program is open to all members of the public who are interested in learning how to ride and potentially join the Club as a new member. For non-members wishing to try out a BCC Ride, there are specific dates designated for “Try a Ride” rides. Please see our Calendar for all Try Out Ride dates.
On these designated days, OCA waiver forms and tracking forms will be available at the beginning of the ride, and the individual will be required to complete, sign, and return the waiver to the ride leader prior to participating in the BCC Ride. “Try Out Ride” waivers may only be used
once per person per season; in order to participate in any future rides, an individual must purchase full insurance and membership.
Prior to attending a Try Out Ride we ask all new riders to please review the Group Ride Guidelines.
All riders must be adequately prepared for the ride/event. Please ensure you bring the following items;
- Membership Card (as proof of membership and insurance purchase)
- Working, well-maintained bike
- Bike light
- Tire repair kit
- Water and food
- Piece of identification
- Cell phone
- Alert Ride Leader and others of any major health concerns, such as epilepsy or heart conditions.
