Affiliated clubs are not-for-profit groups that have a minimum of three directors / board members, a set of by-laws and a constitution. Each member must be insured by holding a current Cycling BC licence. The club exists to organize cycling events for its members, has an open membership and belongs to members.
Members of Cycling BC are covered by “secondary” ride accident and general liability insurance for sanctioned and provincial club registered events and activities. Ride accident insurance coverage is for both sanctioned/registered and non-sanctioned/non-registered activities. The general liability insurance covers sanctioned activities only.

Club members are covered during registered club activities as listed on the club’s affiliation form. If additional club activities are added through the year, Cycling BC must be notified before the activities take place in order for the club and its members to be covered.
Ride accident insurance coverage is for both sanctioned/registered and non-sanctioned/non-registered activities. The general liability insurance covers sanctioned activities only.
The insurance provided is the same as in Question 1, but while working in a technical capacity for the affiliated Club. Some technical licences require certification i.e. NCCP, Provincial C Commissaire and require a Code of Conduct to be signed.
If an accident occurs while participating in a club activity, a club member has 30 days to report an injury. Please fill out the accident report form.
Personal belongings of members are NOT covered however Cycling BC does offer optional bike insurance for the loss/damage to bicycles.
