Brampton Cycling Club Established 1972

Club History

Welcome all cycling enthusiasts to the Brampton Cycling Club (BCC). We are a non-profit organization that was founded in 1972. The club started out as a racing club and kept that tradition for a very long time before slowly transforming into a predominantly touring club. Our club continues to grow and now has over 200 members. BCC is a friendly and accommodating cycling club that welcomes all newcomers with open arms.

Safety

At the Brampton Cycling Club, safety is a number one concern. The club offers a number of skills clinics on safe riding techniques and everyone has a role to play to ensure that groups rides are safe for all the participants.

Insurance

Only official rides listed in the events calendar are insured rides. All other rides are unofficial and not covered by insurance.

Due to insurance requirements, only riders insured with the Ontario Cycling Association are allowed on group rides.
