Membership

Membership benefits:

  • Easy access to race information through colossi.cc, colossi calendar & colossi google groups.
  • Unrivaled contacts in the cycling world through Jan & Colossi Shenzhen
  • Assistance in race registration.
  • Support in the logistics to/from races.
  • Discounted price on Team clothing.
  • Discount for Colossi frames.
Membership structure:
 
Colossi.cc's principles are to be open to all riders & supporters. Colossi.cc is a non-profit organisation run by a team of dedicated enthusiasts for passion, not profit. We welcome all, but at this stage we are not able to admit under 18 members (we're working on it!).
 
To cover our costs we have a membership fee of $100HK. This isn't to line our pockets, and to show as much once you become a member you will have access to our on-line google groups ledger where we list all incoming & outgoing $$$.
 
Given the litiguous society we live in, we also require you to sign a waiver. Please understand we all need to protect our own interests. We all put in a lot of time into the club so we request you spend 5 minutes of your own time to read the waiver and get it back to us. Without the waiver we have little to gain and a lot to lose.
