Eastern Veterans Cycling Club


Eastern Veterans Cycling Club is a club that organises road races for veteran aged cyclists (women > 30yo, men > 35yo) on Saturday afternoons, Wednesday mornings, and Tuesday evenings over summer, in a competitive but friendly environment.

Eastern Vets strives to be a diverse and friendly club providing a safe and inclusive environment with competitive Road Racing for Males over 35 and Females over 30.
Eastern Vets encourages camaraderie amongst all members.
We are about safety, fitness, competitive & fun racing.

The club runs approximately 130 races per year over two seasons; Summer – criteriums, and Winter – road races.  The majority of races are graded scratch races (A to F) where competitors compete against riders of similar strength and ability.  Races are conducted at both closed and open road circuits.

With the exception of club championships all races are open to all AVCC licensed riders.

The club currently boasts around 300 members and is always looking for new members of any age or standard.

Interested in finding out more?  Either contact the club secretary (easternvetscycling@outlook.com)  or check out the current race calendar and come along to a race to experience it for yourself either as a spectator or as a competitor in a trial ride*.

 

*The AVCC allows members of the population who have never raced in an AVCC affiliate club event, two ‘free’ trial rides (free of affiliation and membership fees, race entry fee does apply).  To take advantage of this offer print and complete the trial membership application form and bring it along to the race of your choice with the standard race entry fee ($10/$15).  Riders are only permitted two trial rides, after which, if they wish to continue racing, they must take out full club membership to obtain an AVCC licence.
