If you get stuck at any point in the registration process, you can call CCN Bikes (the operator of the registration site) at 1-866-534-2453. 

We ask that you please carry your 2022 OBC membership card with you when participating in any OBC sanctioned events. It will be attached to the “Welcome” letter received after registering with CCN Bikes, and will be e-mailed to you to give you the option of keeping them in your e-files.  Please feel free to print and laminate this card, if you wish. 

Please contact the Club Office for further information.  No cancellations of memberships once fully processed.  We cannot process or issue membership refunds for any reason. 

A note on the required OCA membership step: 

All OBC members are required to hold a membership in the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA). Most OBC members only require a basic "Associate Club Membership” in the OCA. If you are registering for the Youth Program or plan to race within Ontario, you will require a Provincial Race License and those planning to race more broadly require a Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) license.  The appropriate category of OCA membership / license may be selected in the "Add a Membership / Licence option..." section on our CCN Bikes registration pages. 

*Membership fees do not include 2022 OCA Membership. Each OBC member is required to also hold (a) an Associate Club Membership with the OCA ($48), (b) a Provincial Race License ($45 for under 19 yrs.) ($90 for 19+ yrs.), (c) a full individual membership in the OCA through the purchase of a UCI racing or technical license (options from $80-190), or (d) a full OCA (non-riding) General Membership ($75). 

It is important to read everything provided in the on-line registration service carefully! Once you have completed your application, you will be emailed a letter confirming your registration with the Ottawa Bicycle Club, that includes your membership number and membership card, and that payment has been made as well as other important club information.
