How to Join the CABC - 2017

Interested in becoming a CABC Member?  Our membership year runs from January 1st to December 31st each year.  Current membership with the Alberta Bicycle Association (ABA) and the CABC are mandatory for those wishing to participate in club group rides.  The only exception is for cyclists who are new to the CABC and who would like to attend a few group rides to help them decide if they are interested in joining us.

If you want to join the CABC for 2017 follow these two steps:

Step One:       Purchase either a General ABA Membership or a Race License from the Alberta Bicycle Association (Note:  This is not your club membership.  You need either a General ABA Membership or a Race License so that you have insurance coverage to ride with the CABC.  This is required by all ABA Affiliated Clubs.)

        Option 1:  If you intend to race in Provincial ABA cup races or in UCI sanctioned events purchase one of the  race licenses.  The cost will range from $50 to $135 depending on which licence you choose.  If you are unsure which race license is right for you see the detailed explanation of the different race license here: http://www.albertabicycle.ab.ca/membership-types 

Option 2:  If you intend to ride with the CABC on group rides and participate in the Club's Tuesday Night Road Races series, but not in any Provincial or UCI events, purchase the General ABA Membership (non-racing).  The cost will be $40.00 for an Adult General Membership or $30.00 for a U17 General (non-BMX) Membership.

Option 3:  If you want to join the CABC but do not intend to participate in any group rides or races you do not need to purchase a race license or a General ABA Membership.  This applies to those who only want to work with the club to build and maintain the mountain bike trail system in Red Deer.

For those choosing Options 1 or 2 follow these steps:

b.      Create a new profile or login to access your profile.

d.      Complete the ABA Membership form and complete your payment.

Step Two:   Purchase a CABC Membership ($40.00 for adults and Free for those age 17 and under as of 
January 1, 2017).  To do this follow these steps:
a.       Click on the “Club Membership Using Zone 4” link here:  Zone 4 - CABC
c.       Click on the “Continue” button
d.      Click on the “Add First Person” button
