The Arrowsmith Mountain Bike Club originally started up in 1994 with approximately 65 members. We have regular meetings to discuss club programs and issues
and welcome any volunteer assistance and interest. The Club's focus is on promoting the sport, providing social riding opportunities, trail building and maintenance,
getting out there and riding!

Arrowsmith Mountain Bike Club is an affiliated club with Cycling BC (CBC).
Arrowsmith Mountain Bike Club 2017 MEMBERSHIP
At a recent Arrowsmith Mountain Bike Club (AMBC) general meeting, the members voted to change our membership requirements. There are now two levels to choose from, depending upon your requirements:
Tier 1 : For riders and supporters of AMBC that wish to participate in club activities but without additional personal or accident insurance coverage, the annual fee is $20. There is no longer a requirement to have insurance to join our rides.
However it will be up to individuals to get coverage through Cycling BC, or any other insurance provider, if they feel they need riding insurance.
The cost of being a supporter of AMBC ($20.00) goes towards:
- Maintenance and construction of our Hammerfest trails
- Supporting local riding club and groups within School District 69,
- Maintaining our affiliation with Cycling BC so we can run our sanctioned races and other acitivities
- Yearly Club operating costs
Tier 2 For riders requiring a Cycling BC (CBC) license so as to participate in multiple CBC sanctioned events you can still support the club by joining for $20 but will need to buy your license directly through CBC. Membership in Cycling BC includes “secondary” sport accident and general liability insurance for sanctioned events and activities. (NOTE: AMBC is still affiliated with CBC, therefore our activities are sanctioned) As of 2017, this CBC coverage now provides a new 24/7 Personal Accident insurance. Cycling BC license costs range from $55.00 to $160.00 depending on age and type of license required.

If you just want to race in a couple of our local races you can get a ‘Non-Member Day Of Event Insurance Release' on race day for $10. This allows you to participate in CBC sanctioned events without holding a Provincial Ride or a UCI Race license.
