F.A.Q.

Clubs and teams are added to the membership registration selection option menu as they affiliate for the calendar year with OC. If your club or team is not on the list, they have yet to complete the affiliation process for the current season.

If your Club/Team is associated outside of Ontario, please contact the OC office to let us know what governing body has affiliated your Club/Team and the official name. Once confirmed, this can be added to your Race License.

If your club/team is not on the list, you will not be able to get your membership with their name on it until they do. If you apply for your UCI License or Provincial Race License as an Independent, we will process it as such, and you will need to change the affiliation once your Club/Team affiliates. There is a $12 reprocessing fee to reprint any UCI License (no cost if only issued digitally). All Associated Club Memberships must be tied to an OC-Associated club.

If you are looking to upgrade or downgrade and don’t have the points to do so, your license application will be delayed. All upgrade/downgrade requests outside the point structure should be submitted using the OC’s Upgrade/Downgrade Request Form. Applications received with the incorrect category, and no upgrade/downgrade request will be issued with the previously approved category (or entry-level for new members).

A rider under the age of 18 requires a parent or legal guardian to agree to ALL aspects of the waiver form (including the declaration and Anti-Doping Policy for UCI License applicants) before the membership application will be processed. If you do not have a parent/guardian with you when you apply, you will be able to email them a link to the waiver to complete and once that is submitted; the membership will go into the processing queue.

Members will have to upload a Driver’s License/Passport style photo (smiling is allowed) to their CCN profile for the following memberships:

  • UCI License – MANDATORY
  • Provincial Race License– OPTIONAL
  • Associate Club Memberships or General Memberships– NOT REQUIRED

 

Any photo that is not a head-shot photo, or has any items like hats, helmets, sunglasses, etc., which block the viewing of a person’s face or head, will be rejected and result in the license taking longer to process.

If you are a Commissaire/ Staff, please select Technical License.

Suppose you need a UCI Race License and are also a Commissaire/Coach or Staff (manager, soigneur, mechanic etc.). In that case, you will need to add the Technical License membership option before completing your purchase. You will only be charged for the UCI Race License. (Note: UCI Technical License holders looking to participate in OC Sanctioned Events may simultaneously hold a Provincial Race License and a UCI Technical UCI License.
