How do I join BiciSport or renew my current membership ?
Click on JOIN NOW
Select a State - New South Wales
Select a Club - BiciSport
select the desired membership category (see below)
Confirm the Terms & Conditions (tick the bottom box)
complete the individual name/contact details section
make the membership payment (Visa or Mastercard only)
CA will email you an email receipt
Print off a copy of the email receipt (to produce to local race officials until the plastic license arrives via Australia Post)
What happens then ?
When you join on-line Cycling Australia will automatically issue a receipt via email as a membership confirmation.
Print off this email receipt and take it with you to each race (as a membership receipt) until your plastic CA-BiciSport license arrives via Australia Post about 3 weeks later. Note - you can race immediately upon receiving the interim receipt via email from Cycling Australia or BiciSport.
The membership categories are -
Racing - a full competitive licence, which covers all northside club racing plus track & road events, and all National & State Championships.
Ride It - designed for recreational riders, cyclo sportives, gran fondos, social & charity rides, selected time trials, club training & coffee shop rides.
Non Riding [for Club VIPs] - designed for non racing members who provide their time as officials, commissaires, club administrators and coaches
If you take out a Masters Racing licence (when over 30 years of age) - this enables you to:
enter Masters events
enter Club events
enter NSW Open events, but
restricts Masters riders from contesting Elite Championships
If you take out an Elite Racing licence (when over 30 years of age) - this enables you to:
enter ANY racing event (including Elite Championship events),
contest any Masters category Championships in the same year (for the over 30’s).
this has a significant positive impact on riders who hold Elite licences - they are now eligible to race in all Masters events in Australia.
BiciSport retains between $5-$24 of individual membership fees to cover club registration fees (with CyclingNSW), team entry fees to the NSW Team Time Trial Championships (Track & Road) and regular BiciSport website support and upgrade costs.
