Club Overview

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 touring club. BCC is a friendly and accommodating cycling club that welcomes all newcomers with open arms.

Activities

The club has an active cycling calendar with rides almost every day of the week between April and October. Rides are organized into groups with group sizes no larger than 12 riders. In addition to club rides, the club also hosts club tours in Canada and the USA.

There are several social activities that are sprinkled throughout the cycling season. Activities include: Eden Mills Picnic, Family Day Picnic, Niagara Ride, Blue Mountain tour, Finger Lakes tour, Skills Clinics, and a Year-end social.
