Club Membership

Welcome back for a new school year!

Membership registration will work the same way this year as it has in the past. To join McGill Cycling for 2015-2016, just follow this simple three-step process:

  1. Click the Join the Club button at the top of this screen.
  2. Fill out the form.
  3. Make one easy payment of $40 or $100 (club or team, respectively). Cheques can be made out to McGill Cycling. We also accept sealed envelopes with your name on it. You can also pay via Interac E-transfer to mcgillcycling@gmail.com

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

There's literally more. There's so much more to be excited for this year.
We're sending racers to mountain bike races in the Eastern Collegiate Cycling conference race season. If you're a road racer, we're going to race in the spring and summer.

If you're a potential new member reading this, be sure to read on to learn more about what we have to offer you. We have a lot of plans for this year. We're going to host team socials, give individual attention to beginner riders, get people racing, and continue the excellent training camps and programs that we offer.

Just like last year, there are two levels of membership:

Club: This costs $40 and gives you access to all our rides and winter training, our super awesome cycling clothes at cost, and our discount at the Cycle Neron bike shop and on WMD wheels.

Team: This costs $100, includes all of the above, but also allows you to race with us - because of our sponsors, we are often able to at least partially sponsor transportation, travel, and race fees, so the increased team fee will certainly save you money over any other way to race your bike. The team training camp down in South Carolina during the winter reading week is also only open to team members.

There is a late fee of $20 for anybody who joins the team after September 30th.

As a head's up, our weekly rides will be starting either the first or second week of school, and there are several events planned for September, including training weekends, tryouts (informal), and hopefully a large get-together. Keep an eye on the forum and Like us on Facebook if you haven't already. We're so pumped for this year, and I'm eager to see everyone on the road or in the gym.


Club Activities


During the Fall

Once classes start, the club has organized rides planned for most weekdays in September and October. These include two weekly beginner rides, a women's ride, King/Queen of the Mountain, and Team Points Ride.

ECCC mountain bike races also take place in the fall. Depending on the timing and location of the events, the team may organize to attend a few of them.

Winter Training

When there's snow on the ground, we transition to spinning and plyometric training in the gym. All the details will be posted on the forum and times marked on the calendar.

Spring Fun

The team competes in the ECCC in the spring. We try to attend to three or four race weekends generally and we'll organize all the transportation and housing. Details for races are usually posted a week or two before the event.

Many of our members record their rides on Strava. It's a great resource for finding routes and keeping up with everyone.
