History

The meetup.com group Victoria Cycling Adventures was created on July 13, 2013. On February 1st, 2014, the group had over 300 members and 31 riders showed up for the Humpback Reservoir Ride.

We quickly realized that we needed to provide more rides and have more riders willing to organize rides.  We also needed to have liability insurance and an organization structure.  Thus we decided to become a registered society.

Victoria Cycling Adventures Club (VCAC) was incorporated as a non-profit society in March 2014 and we've been growing ever since.  VCAC is the umbrella society for the meetup.com group Victoria Cycling Adventures.

Setting up the Society and purchasing insurance cost money, hence our fees.
