Types of Affiliation

Cycling BC represents Affiliated Cycling Clubs throughout the province. We encourage cyclists to belong to a club as well as to Cycling BC because of the different benefits each provides. Clubs enrich cycling with their involvement in activities such as races, recreational events, group rides, and advocacy, working on a local level. Organizations may also affiliate with Cycling BC as a Supporting Business or Trade Team.

For clubs, there are a number of benefits to affiliating with Cycling BC: access to insurance for events, volunteers, directors, and members; exposure and promotion through our website, social media, and newsletters; a direct link to the largest group of organized and active cyclists in the province; and the right for riders to wear club and sponsor jerseys when racing.

Supporting Business

Supporting Business

A Supporting Business is for organizations wishing to sponsor select riders without the responsibility of an open club, or wanting to sanction an event. On site race support is not given and therefore a supporting business may choose to not assign a team manager or coach. Affiliation is only recognized in BC and is not included in Cycling BC’s National Insurance Program.

Provincial Club/Trade Team

Provincial Club

Affiliated clubs are not-for-profit groups that exist to organize cycling events for their members, have open memberships, and belong to their members. Each member must hold a current Cycling BC membership.

Trade Team

Trade Teams privately owned entities with a self-selected membership. On-site race support is often given to members including coaching, technical and managerial services.

Upgrade Points & Commissaire Training

We are working with clubs and race organizers to provide more opportunities for BC riders to participate in races meeting the standards for UCI category upgrades. To this end, Cycling BC is pleased to announce the creation of a province-wide points system that will bring together all levels of events to support a cumulative ranking and upgrade system. See the document outlining these changes here.

We are looking to all clubs to become engaged in developing cycling and making these opportunities sustainable, by volunteering to train and participate as commissaires.

Show your support and get involved–become trained as a commissaire now! Cycling Canada’s online introductory commissaire course is now offered online: register  here. Follow the link below for further training, with commissiare mentorship at local races.
