The Cycling BC Board of Directors passed a motion at the October 2019 board meeting to recommend an amendment to Cycling BC’s 2020 membership fees, the details of which are noted below.
The recommendation was made in anticipation of rising sport accident insurance premiums due to the number of claims made by Cycling BC members over the past two years.
As a reminder, Cycling BC’s sport accident insurance has two components:
- Top up (over and above members’ personal insurance) rehab coverage for injuries incurred while riding a bicycle 24/7, worldwide.
- A “broken bone” portion, providing a cash payout for broken bones sustained while riding a bicycle anywhere in the world.
In addition to the general liability insurance included with each membership, optional bike insurance, and the value-added services provided to members, this coverage provides significant value by offering accident protection for members when engaged in cycling anywhere, anytime. Over the past two years, there have been well over 50 claims where this coverage has helped members with the financial costs associated with their recovery. In order to continue providing value-added services to our members, fee increases are occasionally necessary to keep the same high level of benefits that members are accustomed to. In this case, we are proposing a $5.00 increase to the Cycling BC 2020 membership fees.
In order to pass this motion, a majority vote with a minimum of 21 submissions is required. To maximize the number of members who are able to vote on the proposed membership fees, we are conducting an online vote between November 1 – 10, 2019. This will allow members time to ask questions, consider the options, and have their vote included in the decision.
The proposed 2020 membership fees are as follows:
|License Type||2019 Fee||2020 Fee|
|UCI Cycling For All (Formerly BC RIDE)||$60||$65|
|BC RACE YOUTH||$60||$65|
|BC RACE ADULT||$90||$95|
In order to vote, a member must be in good standing with Cycling BC on or before October 1, 2019.
