(3) BEFORE attending ANY BBB Official Ride

YOU FIRST NEED to subscribe and participate within 2 months after your membership to one of our DISCOVERY RIDE. We don’t make any exceptions to this requirement.

(4) My check-list before the first ride

Taking part in a discovery ride is mandatory.
Riding with a cycling club can seem daunting at first, so we require all new and prospective members to attend one of our Introductory Rides . These are short club rides where we cover topics such as such as what to carry with you, how to ride in group formations, and what all those hand signals mean. 

(5) Where to look for the ride's schedule, GPX and specific details?

  • All our rides are posted on our Strava Club
  • You’ll have to register there for every ride
    (please register in advance so we can plan adequate Road Captain(s) assistance
  • If you are not registered, your Road Captain may decide to decline your participation on the ride
  • If we exceptionally have to cancel a ride (weather warning, etc), the information is posted on the Strava event
  • Depending on weather conditions (heavy rain, wind,…) we may need to merge various groups.

(6) What about BBB official kit?

  • If you join as a “new member”, you noticed that getting the club jersey is compulsory. You’ll get yours in the coming weeks (min. 10 weeks) directly at home by Vermarc, our kit supplier
  • Please note that most items are not in permanent stock. To get all your BBB-apparel, participate in our “pre-order runs” (January, June, September) organised  in the BBB dedicated webshop powered by Vermarc (please note that items are generally delivered 8 to 10 weeks after the end of the pre-order run)
  • You might find some items of our kit in our webshop as well
