Getting Started Guide
STEP 1. Get a Licence
Getting started in competitive cycling is easy. To race you need to be a member of a Queensland cycling club and also have a Cycling Australia race licence. You can join a club and obtain a licence online through through the Cycling Australia Membership HQ or click the button below or alternatively contact our club secretary directly who can help you complete and application form and accept your affiliation fee. If you are not sure about it and just want to give it a go you may purchase a temporary licence to try it out. The 3 race temporary licence is the best value.
