Club Info & Getting Involved
The Nelson Cycling Club is a voice for cycling interests in the Nelson and surrounding area. We work to improve and maintain trails, trail access and events. Our goal is to promote and develop cycling opportunities in a socially and environmentally responsible manner for the benefit of Nelson area residents. We are a volunteer-run, registered, non-profit Society that caters to children, youth, adults and families, and riders of all levels and abilities.
Since our inception in 1995, the Nelson Cycling Club has focused on community events like the annual Kootenay Fat Tire Festival, which includes cross-country, downhill, freeride, trials, and kids events. We are also associated with community bike events such as NRG’s Triple Crown—where riders both climb and descend over 7000 feet in a single day—and Baldface’s Cherry Top Challenge. Starting a few years ago (2008), the club and local businesses and bike shops began hosting toonie rides. Sacred Rides Kokanee, Gericks Mtn Stn Enduro, etc
Nelson has an extensive network of bike trails that were built by local community members with a strong passion for biking. As the sport of mountain biking grows, so has the need for trail maintenance. In 2004, the Club initiated a program to improve Trail Maintenance and Stewardship in the Nelson area. With a paid crew who do maintenance throughout the summer and special volunteer trail blitzes, the NCC is making sure the trails stay fun and fresh!
Membership is for adults, for teens, for kids 12 and under, and for the whole family! When you join or renew, you get great perks like discounts at local businesses (worth more than your membership fee!), and you show your support for the local trails. Check out the registration form here.
