NBCC will connect you with a social circle that will influence the rides and races you attend, the people with whom you associate, club sponsors, and all sorts of other benefits that will shape your cycling experience.  Through our member-only Facebook pages, website and blog feed, members are kept abreast of what’s happening in the local scene, making you feel a part of your own cycling community and connecting you with other like-minded cyclists. Choose either a Social or Racing Membership from the options below and learn what NBCC can offer you to get the most out of your cycling experience.

 

Social Membership

NBCC offers the unique opportunity to join as a Social Member for just $25. Whilst NBCC supports and encourages the purchase of an insurance based membership (below) we understand you may already have purchased that from elsewhere (eg. triathlon) or no longer feel the requirement for the insurance component. Social members can join in on all of NBCC’s Club Rides, training sessions and social events, experiencing all that a cycling club has to offer. With an emphasis on building friendships that will last a lifetime, the Social Membership caters to both the novice and the experienced, fostering a relaxed and supportive atmosphere where members are encouraged to achieve their goals, whatever they may be. If you're looking to tick off your first century, be the coffee-ride aficionado, or transition into the world of racing, the Social Membership will have something to offer you. It will give you access to all the NBCC Members benefits, as well as special offers and promotions from our sponsors and supporters.

Whether you're new to the world of cycling and ready to see what cycling with a club has to offer, or looking for a new bunch to help you develop your skills, the NBCC Social Membership is a great introduction to the life of our club!
