Try-Out Rides

Our Try-Out Ride program allows non-Members to experience a Club ride at no charge - a great opportunity to meet WCC Members while enjoying a relaxed urban ride in a group environment. Participation is limited to one ride per person, per year, in accordance with our insurance regulations.

Try-Out riders are normally permitted only on our Wednesday evening Cycle-in-the-City rides, which are rated at the R1 BEGINNER level, allowing participants to experience their first Club ride at a slower pace.
