The WCC was born as a road club in 1967.

We’ve had a number of provincial champions, and at times our legendary Tuesday night Bamberg rides have drawn national-class riders.

Road rides are the biggest rides we organize – with upwards of 80 people at the peak of the season. Before the ride, small groupetto’s are organized based on skill level and ride leaders go over the rules and route.

Nothing beats group road riding for developing endurance, power and pack racing skills.

Group riding takes practice and is about no surprises:

  • Pedal smoothly, no rapid acceleration or braking

  • Communicate with your riding partners

  • Signal your intent and point out road hazards

You must be a member of the club to join our rides. See Membership for details.


For all rides, check the Waterloo Cycling Club's Discourse Forum for information and updates leading up to the ride each week.

Finding your group

Groups are organized by ride culture. To help find the rides that suit you the best, see our Road Culture page. You should have an idea of your solo pace and maximum distance.
