MEMBERSHIPCATEGORIES & BENEFITS

Cycling Australia offers three membership categories to suit serious racers, recreational riders, officials, volunteers and those who just want to be part of the action.

MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES In order to compete in any club, regional, state or national cycling event, you must have a licence (or temporary one) issued by our national governing body - the Australian Cycling Federation (ACF) often referred to as Cycling Australia (CA). On paying your fees, you will be issued with an official "licence" (a plastic card the size of a credit card) by Cycling Australia and this licence must be carried with you to all races and training sessions as proof of membership and hence insurance coverage.
