2024 Registration Info

Your membership fee supports a significant initiative the Club is making towards safer and more enjoyable club rides at all levels. This investment includes increasing and standardizing Ride Leader training and ride protocols and procedures, safe cycling clinics, and overall support for WoW members throughout the province.

The cost of a Women on Wheels Cycling Club Membership INCLUDES the mandatory Cycling Nova Scotia Insurance.

New this year, WoW registration MUST be completed online. Each membership is valid for 12-months from the date of registration and will automatically renew each year on the anniversary date. As online registration is done through a 3rd party (CCNbikes.com), a small administration fee will be charged on all memberships.

Membership cards will be emailed to you as a PDF file once your payment has been processed. Please print off and carry your membership card during all WoW Rides as it provides proof of membership and important safety information.

Remember, participation in any club ride requires an active membership. Prior to any club ride, members may be asked by Ride Leaders or other WoW Representatives to provide proof of membership.

If you do not want to purchase a full 12-month membership, you can purchase a one-event pass for each ride that you participate in.

2024 FEES

We have 2 registration options for the WoW membership.

GENERAL (12-Months)

Membership $50

 

ONE-EVENT (Per ride)

Single event $10

*The one-event pass provides mandatory provincial insurance for the rider to join a single ride.

Check out our website for more information about the ride organizer responsibilites and benefits!

Contact Jess at [email protected] to get started!

It’s been a few years since I’ve been on a bike. I’m worried about getting left behind.

All of our rides follow a “No Woman Left Behind” rule! Most focus on beginner levels.

You are always welcome to reach out to the ride organizer in advance to introduce yourself!

Do I have to commit to going to the same ride every week?

Nope! Once you have a Cycling NS membership you become a Women on Wheels member and can join any WoW ride in Nova Scotia whenever, wherever! You don’t have to register for a specific ride.

Is the start location always the same or does it change?

The location for the rides may change and there will be some that are cycled on more than once.

You can join the Facebook group for your area, titled Wow Cycling Club – [location], to be notified of ride locations.

You can also reach out to the ride organizer and ask where they’ll be meeting each week!
