Welcome to the 2019 cycling season for the Milton Bicycle club. 2019 will be our 5th season as an official OCA-affiliated club and sure to be even better than the last as we learn more about our member base and their wants, needs, goals and preferences.

Beyond the fun we intend to have on our regular weekend rides, we will be adding a few new club exclusive events and rides. In particular, as the weather warms, there will be weekday rides leaving Milton at approx. 6:30pm in the evening.

Membership and club registration is all processed online through CCN. You will able to secure your OCA affiliation and Milton Bicycle Club registration all in one place and make a single payment online.

OCA Licensing

How does licensing work?

A license from the OCA is required to be a member of the Milton Bicycle Club. By registering from the link above, you have the option to obtain one. The most basic license is an OCA-affiliated club license. This is all you need to join and get started on regular club rides and events. If you intend to race, you must look into purchasing a race or citizen permit license (dictated by the requirements of the races you will be attending). If you are already a member of another OCA-recognized club and would like to join the MBC, you are not required to purchase additional coverage. We do ask that you supply proof of this for our records. Additionally, if you are a current UCI race license holder, you also do not require additional coverage.

If you affiliate your race license with the MBC, you will be required to wear the Milton Bicycle Club kit during races.

Club rules

Ride etiquette and bi-laws

As a member of MBC you must read and agree to the rules of the club as outlined in the risk management plan (RMP)—available to download below. A signed copy should be submitted electronically via email or brought along on your first club ride. Not following the general rules of the club will result in expulsion of the club and fees will not be refunded. Many of the rules and laws may seem like common-sense, but must be followed. Our future as a club depends on the consistent application and adherence to these rules as they have been put forth. Among these rules, the most important is respecting all road users including motor vehicles and other cyclists—by obeying the rules of the road, you keep others and yourself safe. Always ride smart and wear your helmet at all times.

If there are any questions or concerns about the rules as they have been outlined in our RMP, please contact us directly.
