The club is currently on hiatus due to COVID19. Please check back in the new year for updates on group rides, beginner's clinics, etc. Thanks, and stay safe!
If you are interested in a group riding clinic for beginners, riders returning to the sport, or riders who just want to brush up on their basic skills, contact us at [email protected]. TBACC group riding clinics cover basic bike setup, pre-ride checks, hand signals, basics of drafting, shoulder checks, traffic law, and safety equipment and techniques. Bring your bike and all your equipment, as we will be riding in a controlled space to hone our skills. You will need to sign a waiver at the store before the day of the clinic.
The Bicycle Asylum Cycling Club (TBACC) is open to riders of all ages and abilities. We have group rides for both road and mountain disciplines. Club members receive 10% discounts on labour and select cycling accessories and clothing, as well as free access to our bicycle maintenance and repair clinics.
Make a quick pit-stop at our shop to sign up for our private club insurance. All riders participating in club rides must have proof of insurance for every scheduled ride. Do you want to try our club out for a day? No problem! We have a one-day waiver that allows you 24 hour insurance to see if our club is the right club for you. Insurance cost = $90 tax included (April 2019 - April 2020)
