Board of Directors

The Waterloo Cycling Club (WCC) is a non-profit, volunteer run organization. Funding comes from membership fees and sponsor support.

The Board of Directors (BOD) provides operational oversight and program direction through annual general meetings, committees and active participation in club activities.

Kerry Gale - Director  - President

I am an ‘adult onset cyclist’ and love what the sport has brought to my life.  I joined the WCC in 2016 when we moved to Kitchener.  As a beginner rider, I started like many in the Learn to Group Ride program.  From there I became a Ride Leader, I attend and lead at the Monday night Ladies MTB Ride, I enjoy pulling out my skinny tire bikes for the occasional road or gravel ride and am learning cyclocross.


As President, my hope is to continue to share the sport of cycling with others. To help people grow, and grow myself, through cycling and the WCC community.  With the club’s collective knowledge and experience across the many cycling disciplines I look forward to continuing our mission of Ride.Race.Lead. in the Waterloo Region.

Happy Riding!

Mark Weymouth - Director - Vice-President

The Waterloo Cycling Club became a part of my life in 2013. Little did I know I’d love it so much that each year to follow would see me become more and more involved. Cyclocross is my primary discipline, although I also spend a great deal of time on the road and a little on the trails.

In 2016 I was appointed co-manager for cyclocross with Kevin Gibson. Since then we’ve introduced a new CX practice “Columbia Lake Skills and Drills”, an outdoor CX Fall Social and the Cyclocross Worlds Watching Party. Finally, with the help and support of the WCC, we brought cyclocross racing to KW in 2018 with KWCX, grew it into an Ontario Cup and hosted Provincial Championships in 2022.

In 2019 I took on the role of liaison between the WCC and Faction Racing as well as Race Director with Faction Racing.  I’m always trying to encourage people to try cyclocross and racing in general. I’m also more than happy to answer questions on either subject, or find someone that can.

This year I fill the position of Vice President in addition to working with Faction and helping the club with all things CX. 

Jim Daley - Director - Treasurer

I have been an avid cyclist since the early 1990s primarily on the road and in triathlon. In 2019 I started gravel riding. I became aware that the WCC had an active gravel riding group so decided to join the Club. From my first ride I have been very impressed with the sense of community and the strength of the Ride, Race, Lead culture. The commitment evident from all the ride leaders I have met to make the rides enjoyable and safe for all riders is very impressive and prompted me to think of ways that I could contribute to the growth of the club.. I started to help plan routes for the Saturday morning gravel rides this past fall. I have a financial background and have been on a number of NPO boards over the years. I decided to run for the Board and am looking forward to serving the club as Treasurer.

Carla Wilson - Director

I’ve been riding with the Waterloo Cycling Club since we moved to Waterloo in 2015 and have enjoyed the cycling community very much.  I started in the Learn to Group Ride and enjoyed Recreational rides after the six-week introduction was completed. On the Board, I can contribute ideas to encourage more cyclists to try club activities and better support newer members.  I take part in several events every year eg. The Tour de Grand, Tour de Norfolk, the Dunnville Tour, The Big Ride for Alzheimer’s with WCC and it would be great to see more WCC uniforms in these events.

Brent Ellis - Director

I'm proud to be a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and look forward to continuing to help cycling grow in the Waterloo Region. I'm a past Treasurer and President of the Waterloo Cycling Club and one of the founding members of the WCC Trails Committee. Presently I am the Chair of the WCC Trails Committee. My plan for rejoining the Board is centred around bringing the Trails Committee and Board closer. Over the last couple of years the Hydrocut has grown tremendously and as a WCC board member I will continue to pursue and manage that growth.

Scott Nevin - Director

I'm a lifelong cyclist and have been a WCC member for about 25 years. I've been involved in the Tuesday  Bamberg ride for many years and was a founding member of Ride for Angels, a community bike ride previously held in KW. I have previously been on the Club Board and now in retirement I have more time and energy to support the Club. When not road riding I can be found on my gravel bike.

Drew Molnar - Director

Cycling has always been a part of my life since I set out on my first “bikepacking” trip at the tender age of 11. I mountain biked in the early days through the 80’s and 90’s then rediscovered road cycling about 25 years ago. I’ve participated in many charity events including the National Kids Cancer Ride across Canada in 2008, 2009 and 2010. My time on two wheels is now split between Gravel and Road.

I joined the WCC after moving to Kitchener several years ago. Club membership has given me the opportunity to make many new friends and to build a connection with the community. Now retired, I am happy to be giving back to the cycling community by serving on the board.

Oliver Smith  - Director

I’m a late onset cyclist who picked up cycling as a method of transporting my son in a trailer rather than pushing a stroller and have been riding about 15 years. Although I look fast, I’m not and spend most of my time riding road but I have started to do more gravel. I have been leading the Fast Group 3 road rides on Thursdays and Saturdays for the last year or so and recently started running a summer Tuesday gravel ride too. 

I love talking bike tech and helping out on the WCC bike forum as well as encouraging people to come out and ride.

Zack Maloney - Director

I stumbled my way into cycling in 2019 when I signed up to complete a charity ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls. After this ride I was crushed but energized to dive into the great sport of cycling and that is where it all began. I was a member of a cycling club in Toronto before moving back to the region (my hometown) in 2022 my first year with the Club. I started with the learn to group ride and immediately felt the sense of community within the club and members willingness to not only openly socialize but support each other. While still pretty new relative to other members on the board, in 2024, I have been fortunate enough to join the board. I spend most of my time road riding and am slowly dipping my toes into the gravel scene. I’m looking forward to furthering WCC’s mission and am excited to meet all the members in that process. Happy riding!
