Q: What is 613 Cycling?
A: 613 Cycling is an Ottawa based cycling club with a mission of building on an already great local cycling community.
Q: What type of riding does 613 Cycling support?
A: Our main emphasis is on road/gravel cycling and racing, but we will also participate in Cyclocross and Mountain Biking.
Q: How do I join 613 Cycling?
A: You can now purchase your membership online here. For insurance purposes it is also required to register with the Ontario Cycling Association for an affiliate membership, citizen’s permit, or UCI race license. During this step, you can select “613 Cycling” and the OCA will email you your membership card.
Q: How do I get my hands on some of your kit?
Our beautifully stylish club kit is available to purchase here to all members. We try to run several kit orders a season to help keep the price down by hitting minimum quantities. Don't hesitate to reach out about when our next order might be going through.
Q: Do I need a UCI race license to be a member?
A: The OCA mandates that each member have either an Affiliate Membership, Citizen's Permit, or UCI licence through the OCA as they offer insurance to you for each event you attend. It will protect you in the case of any injuries or accidents sustained during OCA sanctioned events (our group rides, clinics, etc.).
- A Citizen’s Permit also offers you the opportunity to participate in other cycling events outside of ours including local races.
- The UCI race license offers you the opportunity to participate in any international cycling event and UCI sanctioned racing, including the Ontario Cup Race Series.
Q: Do you offer a group ride?
A: Yes! Our Saturday road rides start from Bushtukah (203 Richmond Road) beginning in April and run rain or shine (but will be cancelled for extreme weather) until late October. Our group rides are open to everyone, but an OCA membership is highly recommended as it provides you both personal and third-party liability insurance.
Q: What other events do you offer?
A: Check out our events page for details on other events we will be attending.
