REMINDER TO ALL WOLFPAK RACERS

You must all purchase a UCI licence or citizen permit and join the Walden MTB by registering online at Zone4. The club also requires your name, address, DOB, phone number, category and UCI licence#. This information is required for our reports to the OCA to keep our affiliation and insurance status in good standing. Send this information to: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Those WMBC members who are doing the 8, 24 hr and non OCup events are not required to purchase the UCI licence or citizen permits as your race fees include the insurance.
