5. upgrade to nitro (optional)
Cycling culture can be exclusive, which makes you feel unwelcome or intimidated...
But we believe everyone deserves to experience the joy of cycling.
We understand how hard it is to be a solo cyclist who wants to get better.
That's why we've gathered a group of people, from all different backgrounds, who want to get better at cycling, and also to feel free to be themselves.
The Standard Tier is great for cyclists who are casual riders looking for a group of people to connect with and participate occasionally on organized rides.
All members start out on the free Standard tier, which features up to 3 organized rides per week.
The Nitro Tier (also known as Premium Membership) is for cyclists looking to become more serious in their riding journey, with up to 9 organized rides per week (indoor and outdoor).
We don't care about how fast you are, we have different paced rides for all levels. The most important aspect is your personal dedication to get better - we're here to grow together!
We recommend everyone to come and join our Slack community online to learn more about the club and the members. Next we'd encourage you to attend one of our scheduled Meet & Greet rides (in the Winter they are scheduled pending weather conditions, in the Summer they are scheduled every Friday). More information on Meet & Greet rides can be found on Slack and Strava.
You want to get better, but feel stuck, uncertain or frustrated trying to improve on your own? Our 'Final Form' guide explains some effective ways to improve. No matter what level, you can benefit from the expert knowledge and experience of others.
A CYCLING BC LICENCE
As group rides can often be in a fast paceline, there is additional risk of injury to riders, and to the public. For this reason, TLD requires ALL members to hold a valid annual Cycling BC license for riding.

If you are joining TLD only for group rides mainly and fondo rides or TLD events, then a "Cycling for All" membership should be sufficient.
If you plan to compete in more sanctioned races in the year, including criterium racing in Cat 4 and up, then a "Provincial Race License" is more recommended.
