The MVCC is a non-profit team at McMaster University composed of current students and alumni that either race competitively or just ride recreationally as a way to promote healthy living.

The MVCC encourages everyone to attend their first Cycling Symposium and will be asking for a $2.00 admission. The MVCC hopes to initiate a Cycling Symposium series that will run from October-March with various guest speakers and 50% of all proceeds will be donated to the Hamilton Conservation Foundation which works to protect wetlands and other natural areas through land acquisition initiatives and to increase trail development in the Hamilton area.
