We would like to start-off by sending a sincere thank you to you all for your continued adaptability and patience. Many of you have retained your MCA membership despite the restrictions, postponements and the inability to ride and train with your clubs. Some of you have recently purchased memberships to help keep us going. We are sincerely grateful for your support.
As some of the restrictions begin to ease we look forward to providing our members with more opportunities to keep fit, active and engaged in the cycling community, within the guidelines provided from provincial and health authorities.
PHASE ONE (1) – Effective Immediately:
Adult club rides for members will be able to resume providing participants follow all government mandated legislation. A MCA general membership and signed waiver must be in place for all participants. Please review the new club ride safety protocol attached below.

Coronavirus Absolute Insurance Exclusion (Here)
PHASE TWO (2) – no sooner than June 01:
As per the current Provincial guidelines communicated: “Seasonal non-contact children’s sport activities may operate if they maintain occupancy and activity levels that allow people to maintain a physical distance of at least two metres”. We will be setting up a call with all Kids of Mud clubs interested in resuming club activities for their members. Stay tuned for more details.
We are reviewing the types of cycling events which will be possible given the current distancing and group size guidelines we have at this time. If you have a new idea for an event you would like to organize please contact the MCA office at 204-925-5686 or firstname.lastname@example.org
As events are modified, finalized, and sanctioned they will be posted to the MCA website (Here).
Have a safe and happy long weekend!
