Club Van

The OBC owns a 2005 Chevrolet 3500 Express passenger van with an extended wheel base. This van can be configured for up to eight occupants, including the driver. It has a racking system on the roof that can take up to eight bikes.

The van is used by several portfolios in the club, including such events as Rideau Lakes and various other large tours. Other portfolios, such as Racing, use it frequently as well. These events are planned into the van calendar at the start of the season, thus ensuring priority.


It should be noted that only club members 25 years old and greater, with driver's licences registered with the club office, can operate the van. Due to insurance restrictions, the van is only available to support OBC activities. Contact the club office ahead of time to book the van for club activities.
