Getting started with racing
ACTVets provides potential members with the opportunity have a go at racing using a trial membership. You can use this to participate in two races prior to committing to joining. Before racing you must complete an AVCC Trial Membership Form and bring it along to race rego. Your bike must be roadworthy and you must wear a helmet that complies with AS 2063 at all races.
Please read the information below regarding conditions of membership and then submit your application via the AVCC online membership portal
Membership is valid for a full calendar year and must be paid prior to participating in any race. Members are encouraged to renew their membership by 31 December if they plan to race in the following year, although membership can be renewed at any time. The annual fee covers affiliation to the Australian Veteran Cycling Council (AVCC), insurance and a club fee.
Club members are expected to contribute to the running of the club and its events. Members who fail to help will be deemed ineligible to race until such time as they have met their obligations as specified in the Race Officiation Obligations.”
Your membership is valid from the date of joining until 31 December of that year.
Fees for 2021
- Full competitive membership $125
- Non competitive membership $5
Membership is open to:
Men and women 30 years of age and over. Joining is also permitted at anytime in the calendar year of a person’s 30th birthday.
Receipts, race numbers and licences
Your payment activates an email with membership payment details. Your licence will be emailed to you and should print a copy. You will also be mailed your race number which you must wear at all races.
Join at least 3 days before race day
It helps considerably if you join at least 3 days before you plan to race. If you do join at the last minute it is important that you bring along proof of payment so we know your membership is up to date and your insurance cover has been activated.
Affiliation with other clubs
The ACTVets is affiliated with the Australian Veteran Cycling Council (AVCC). This enables members to participate in any AVCC sanctioned event run by an affiliated club. AVCC licences do not give members access to events run by clubs affiliated with Cycling Australia.
