GIVE POWER TO OUR VOICE AS WE ADVOCATE FOR CYCLING IN PG
The PGCC is a volunteer-run organization that develops and runs several large community cycling events and projects. Your membership fees allow us to operate on an annual basis and your donations help the club expand and improve the services we offer.
The PGCC is called upon by the City of Prince George to provide insight to improving cycling in Prince George. This includes improving existing and developing new bike routes and trails. We also act as a lobbying group for the needs of cyclists.
Cycling Members create a strong, unified voice to ensure decision-makers know there is a demand for safer, more connected routes for cyclists of all ages and abilities. As we work with stakeholders to develop trails and improve bicycle connectivity, one of the questions we are asked every time is how many people we represent. If nothing else, membership in the Prince George Cycling Club gives us the mandate to advocate on your behalf.
The more members we represent, the more grant opportunities are available to us!!!
MORE CLUB BENEFITS
Whenever the provincial government or the city looks at giving funding or supporting a specific type of tourism in our area, they always request membership numbers from the PGCC. Our membership numbers are used as their baseline for how many people use the area. We estimate our membership is only 20% of the PG cycling community, but government organizations that are not intimately involved with the trails do not know that.
Our membership numbers are key to showing both our local and provincial governments how important cycling infrastructure is in our community.
IMPORTANT: Members wishing to participate in ANY road or mountain bike races must be a PGCC member AND must also purchase the 2021 Cycling BC Annual Provincial Ride License.
If you prefer not to get the CBC Annual Ride License to participate in the PGCC races, you can purchase a single event license at the events for $10/event. NOTE that Cycling BC limits any one individual to a maximum of 3 single event licenses per calendar year, so if you plan to participate in more than 3 events, it is recommended you get the annual license.
- The Sports Injury policy is designed to cover members for injuries sustained in two ways:
- During their participation in Cycling BC sanctioned events, either as a rider, coach, spectator or volunteer
- While cycling, anywhere in the world.
- Coverage is provided for injuries including paralysis, disfigurement, and loss of limbs, internal organs, eyesight, speech, or hearing. The policy may also cover a portion of medical bills incurred by insured that is in excess of each individual’s Provincial Health Insurance Plan. These costs may include: private hospital accommodation, ambulance transport cost, chiropractic, ancillary medical procedures, or physiotherapy.
