What is the Ride Club?

We can always use someone to ride with and that's what Ride Club is all about. It's a chance for us to get on our bikes, enjoy the company of familiar faces and share that experience with you. Our rides are suitable for any cyclist and make it easy to get in your 2-hour training ride or a leisurely cruise any evening. Led by trained and experienced staff, club rides are insured for your safety through the Manitoba Cycling Association. And when you register as a member of the WCW Ride Club you get a whole host of perks in store.
