Becoming a member of Northern Cycling

Cyclists become eligible for veteran club membership on the 1st January in the year in which the age of 35 is reached for men and 30 years is reached for women.

To race with Northern, or any other affiliated Veteran Club, you must acquire an Australian Veteran Cycling Council (AVCC) licence. The licences for Victorian clubs are administered through the Victorian Veterans Cycling Council (VVCC). In 2016, the total cost of becoming a member of the Northern Vets is a discounted $195 per year, which includes cost of the AVCC Licence, insurance covering racing and training and the Club Membership fee. Annual memberships are available from October 1, each year, giving new members 15 months of racing for the price of 12.

Please Note: Northern asks its members to register for at least two marshaling/corner duties each year. Some members choose not to register and pay an additional $150 per year (total $345).

All members turning 65 years by December 31, can take up the offer to be exempt from Northern’s club fee of $50, making membership even cheaper. For further information please contact the Treasurer:

Join Northern via the AVCC membership portal.

If you do not have a credit card or unable to register online then please contact the Treasurer: Email: ianrbuckingham@gmail.com Phone: 0410 504 281.

 

Trial rides

Want to try a race before committing to membership?

Our governing body, the Australian Veterans Cycling Council allows members of the population who have never raced in an AVCC affiliate club event, one ‘free’ trial ride (free of affiliation and membership fees, $20 race entry fee does apply to cover insurance).  To take advantage of this offer print and complete the form below and bring it along to the race of your choice with the $20 race entry fee.  Riders are only permitted one trial ride, after which, if they wish to continue racing, they must take out full club membership to obtain an AVCC licence. Trial riders are not eligible for prize money, should they win or place in their trial ride.

Download the trial ride form from the link below, fill it in and bring along to the race you’d like to try. For further information, contact one of the committee members.
