Becoming a Member

2022 OBC Membership Registration will be available in January

 

The OBC is dedicated to being a premier cycling club in Canada, supporting high quality recreational and competitive cycling opportunities that promote a lifelong passion for the sport. 

To continue to provide our members with high quality riding opportunities and member services, the OBC has adjusted its membership fees for the 2021 season.

The regular adult membership rate is $75.00. Any additional adult family members will cost $30.00 per person and must reside at the same address.

The regular Full & Part-Time Student (19-28 yrs) rate is $30. (Registrants may be required to provide proof of enrolment in a degree, diploma, registered apprenticeship or skills training program)

The OBC is committed to making cycling accessible to youth (19 and under) and is proud to keep the youth cycling membership cost at $15.00.

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.

A note on the required OCA membership step... 

All OBC members are required to hold a membership in the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA). If you are not a racer, you will not require an Ontario Citizen Permit (Ontario Racing only) or a UCI license.  Most OBC members only require a basic "Affiliate Club Membership” in the OCA.  This may be selected in the "Add a Membership or Licence option..." section on our CCN Bikes registration pages.
