Here are three simple reasons why you should join us today:

1. It’s an easy and effective way to advocate for safer cycling all over Ottawa.

35525 331531753587230 1706216745 nThe more members we have, the stronger our influence promoting cycling as a safe, fun, and environmentally friendly form of transportation. With so many policy initiatives and infrastructure projects affecting cycling across the city, it’s impossible for any single person to keep track of it all. By taking a few minutes and a few dollars to join CfSC, you strengthen the messages we send to politicians, the city, the province, the National Capital Commission, and fellow Ottawa residents -- and our volunteers do the work to track and communicate the details. With members from across the city, from Kanata to Centretown to Barrhaven to Orleans, we strive to address the need for safe infrastructure that will encourage residents all over Ottawa to ride their bikes.

We also encourage members who are interested to get involved in our Advocacy Working Group or other volunteer opportunities.

Full house at a recent CfSC event2. Your membership fees keep us up and running.

We are a non-profit and entirely volunteer-run organization: We count on membership fees as stable revenue to cover basic operating costs that allow us to work and communicate effectively with our members and all those who bike in Ottawa, whether online, in print, or by hosting community events. We present our financial statements and a report on our finances to our members each year at the time of our Annual General Meeting.

To help ensure finances aren’t a barrier to potential members, we offer a low-income membership for only $10 per year. More details on the types of memberships we offer are available here.

Discounts at bike stores3. You’ll get discounts at bike stores across the city.
