Vision

The Waterloo Cycling Club strives to create an inclusive, engaged community of cyclists, from recreational riders through elite racers, in all disciplines.

Mission

The club endeavours to create multiple opportunities at all levels for club members to participate in organized rides and events, races, and community leadership in the Waterloo Region

For our members, this boils down to three prime mandates: RIDE, RACE & LEAD. These 3 words capture the essence of WCC. They provide a framework for the programs we run; the funding we allocate; the work of the volunteer’s; the issues that we advocate; and the inspiration to make WCC one of the best cycling clubs in Ontario:

Membership - Join Here

We are a reflection of the community. Our membership consists of students, lawyers, police, teachers, business people, locksmiths, and members from all walks of life who love to ride. We develop leaders who run programs and we marshal people’s energy behind a shared vision of cycling as a positive force in society. Join us as we Ride, Race, and Lead together on the roads and trails of the Waterloo Region.
