SOCIAL OR COMPETITIVE,
BE THE BBB MEMBER YOU WANT TO BE!

Our Cycling Club includes a “recreational” group and a “competition” section (BBB Racing). We focus on solidarity and diversity and welcome members with different cycling skills and ambition. 

Due to strict insurance requirements, our activities are only for fully-fledged members of the Brussels Big Brackets Cycling Club. Members must both pay an annual BBB membership fee and get a licence from FCWB or Cycling Vlaanderen.

For more info, check-out the FAQ section of this page.
Do not forget that some benefits come with your membership as well. 
Finally, do not forget to check-out the section dedicated to insurance and road-assistance.

FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MEMBERSHIP

(1) In any case, complete your BBB membership


(2) You must get a license with any of the following federations,
according to your preference: 

You want a FCWB licence? We’ll take care of your licence.
You want a Cycling Vlaanderen? Register by yourself with Cycling Vlaanderen on Cycling Vlaanderen website

We used to propose licences provided by FFBC (Fédération Francophone belge de Cyclotourisme) and VWB (Vlaamse Wielrijdersbond), but we do not propose it anymore. Should you want to keep your licence at FFBC or VWB, feel free to get it directly from the federation and to join BBB as a “member with external licence”.

You might drop an eye to the federations’ websites to check-out the differences between insurances, assistance or events programs provided. Cycling Vlaanderen is a Dutch speaking federation, FCWB is a French speaking federation.

Checkout this summary about what’s in with your membership and your licence as well.

You may check-out our summary about insurance and road-assistance provided by your licence as well.
You may checkout the phone-numbers you can use should you need any assistance or should you call your insurance company as well.

While registering on BBB’s website for a leisure membership, you might note that you have to pay:

  • 25€ (renewal) or 75€ (new member, jersey incl.) for Cycling Vlaanderen
  • 50€ (renewal) or 100€ (new member, jersey incl.) for FCWB

Please note that the price difference is due to the fact that:

  • Cycling Vlaanderen: you have to sort out your licence directly with the federation
    = you only pay your BBB membership during the BBB’s registration process, 25€ (renewal) or 75€ (new member, jersey incl.) 
    = you’ll have to register by yourself and pay for your licence directly on Cycling Vlaanderen’s website
  • FCWB: BBB’s team takes care of your registration with FCWB
    = you pay both for BBB membership + licence during the BBB’s registration process 
    = you pay 50€ (renewal) or 100€ (new member)… and that’s all

(1) Joining with a competition licence:
If you want to join BBB Racing with a competition license you need to get an Elite 3 or Master licence by FCWB – we’ll take care of the registration process with FCWB after we’ll get all the information we need from you.
Just go completely through the registration process, and do not forget to send us all the info we need for FCWB registration, including your medical certificate.

(2) Joining with a recreational licence:
If you want to join BBB Racing with a recreational licence you will be able to participate in trainings organised by the performance section but you will not have the required paperwork to participate in races (some races do allow for a one-day license).
You should fill in the BBB registration form and check the BBB Racing option along with a recreational license of  your choice. We suggest all riders participating in high intensity trainings organised by BBB Racing to do a cardio-respiratory checkup on a yearly basis.
