BiciSport was established in 1995 and has a proud record of achievement in many cycling disciplines, in particular with elite and masters road & track racing.
The name and the logo were drawn from the leading Italian cycle racing magazine of the same name ... the title BiciSport simply means `bikesport` in Italian.
BiciSport supports and fosters riding and racing opportunities for all its members with an emphasis on developing a spirit of camaraderie and to enjoy the sport of cycling in general.

m: 0417 403 244
Management Team (from 25 Feb 19) - Ian Grainger (President), Mike O'Reilly (Secretary/Vice President/Handicapper), Brett Tarlington (Treasurer), Peter Budd and Alex Simmons plus currently one management team vacancy.
CyclingNSW AGM (Delegates) - The AGM is held in May each year at the Bankstown Sports Club - BiciSport delegates are John Crouchley & Ian Grainger
BiciSport Constitution - BiciSport operates under the NSW Fair Trading model constitution (dated 2010) for incorporated bodies.
BiciSport Team Time Trial Policies - BiciSport's primary role (as a Club) is to organise both Road Teams Time Trial teams and Track Teams Pursuit teams for its club members.
For many years (to facilitate this team strategy) the club appointed a Team Coach for that respective Championship, and the Team Coach was also the sole Team Selector. These combined roles were previously undertaken by Alex Simmons, Katie Brown (up to July 2016) and again Alex Simmons at the present time.
From July 2019 the Team Coaching role is undertaken by Alex Simmons and the Team Selection panel is a combined effort of Mike O'Reilly, Ian Grainger & Peter Budd. Consistent with this approach there is an obligation on the rider to firstly nominate for a team, attend team training sessions & develop a positive relationship with the Team Coach.
Mike O`Reilly has been involved with cyclesport since 1967, and was the secretary of the Northern Sydney Cycling Club (now Northern Sydney Cycling Club) from 1982 until 1995 (when BiciSport was established).
Mike has managed several teams at the China Tour in Hong Kong, the Commonwealth Bank Cycle Classic and the Herald SunTour, and numerous BiciSport club teams to domestic events such as the Womens Tour de Snowy.
Mike has held several administrative roles including CyclingNSW Director (twice), Chairman of the CyclingNSW Masters Commission, a member of the Cycling Australia National Masters Commission and Race Director to numerous NSW and National Championships since 2005. Aditionally Mike was the Chairman of the cycling committee for the World Masters Games 2009 in Sydney, Chairman of the CyclingNSW Competitions Commission and a member of the organising committee for the 2011 National Masters Road Championships in Ballarat.
