Thanks for wanting to join the Coburg Cycling Club

There are a few ways to become a part of the Club, and the Melbourne riding scene. Please have a look at the options below, but if you have any queries, or are not sure which licence is best suited to you, just contact us, and we will make sure you have all the info you need to choose.

Recreational Members

Whether it’s to prepare for a big event ride, like the Round-the-Bay, your commute to work, or just for the opportunity to ride with like-minded people, a recreational membership will give you access to rides and activities to help you become a safer, fitter and stronger rider.

Recreational Members enjoy:

  • our club rides and training sessions at no cost,
  • 24/7 insurance on any bike, anywhere in Australia (see the CV website or ask us for details),
  • all our social events, including riding camps (the annual Bright trips are always a hit), and
  • ability to race in any club-level Time Trial in the country

A Recreational – also called ‘Ride Adult’ or ‘Silver Licence’ – membership costs just $88 per year, and are valid for 12 months from the time you join, making them incredibly good value.  You can join Coburg Cycling Club as a Recreational Member and get immediate cover by clicking this link and following the instructions on screen: Licence from Cycling Australia

For more information, simply contact us and one of our Committee members will contact you.

Racing Members

A Racing or “Gold” Licence is a requirement to start in any races at the Club, Combine and/or Open levels.

Racing members can enjoy:

  • all Club and Northern Combine races, including time trials, track racing, our summer criteriums, Northern Combine road races and all other club-level racing (e.g. Kew Crits run by Hawthorn Cycling Club),
  • Club Membership to the end of that calender year,
  • 24/7 insurance on any bike, anywhere in Australia (see the CV website or ask us for details),
  • Cycling Victoria “open” races – a higher standard of racing for those who love to compete with the best,
  • our Club rides and training activities; and
  • all of our social events and riding camps (the annual Bright trips are always a hit).

Racing Licences can be purchased online for immediate cover via:  Racing Licence from Cycling Australia.

Please note: purchasing a Racing Licence from Cycling Australia also includes your Coburg Cycling Club membership. The Club will be automatically notified of your purchase and you will be added to our register of members.

Want to Try Racing?

3 Race Permits are available directly from the Club for those who want to give racing a go. The 3RP is just $50, and entitles you to race any 3 club-level races without committing to the cost of an annual licence. Should you find you love it, the 3RP can then be used for a $45 credit towards a racing licence.

If you want more information on any racing licences or membership, please contact us.
