We run a range of road races including; handicaps, graded scratch races, time trials and criteriums. Road races are held throughout the year and are generally about 40 to 50 km.

Guidelines for competitors

Race pre-race entry must be completed in RMS prior to the specified cut-off date and time.  Race fees are specified for each race and must be paid electronically.  No ‘on the day’ entries will be accepted.  Members having issues entering and paying online should contact the race committee.

You must wear a helmet that complies with the AS 2063 standard.

Race briefings

Just before the start of all races the race director will provide a briefing. You must attend these and you must also observe any instructions or warnings.

Racing on public roads

All events run by the club on public roads are approved by the police and relevant local government authorities. During the race it is important that competitors comply with the normal road rules. Riders must remain on the correct side of the road; do not cross the centerline.

Winter and summer seasons

The racing year is split into two seasons:

Summer – October to March; and Winter – April to September.
Point score trophies are presented for each season. Members accrue points for each non championship road race they enter or officiate at.


Detailed race rules

The ACT Vets uses the rules as detailed in the AVCC’s Racing Rules and Regulations (as adopted 13th May 2015). This covers both track and road racing.
