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.

Team Principal - Mike O'Reilly
Management Team (effective from 17 Dec 16) - Ian Grainger (President), Mike O'Reilly (Vice President/Handicapper), Brett Tarlington (Treasurer), Cleo Higgins (Secretary), Alex Simmons plus currently two management team vacancies.
CyclingNSW AGM (Delegates) - The AGM is held in May each year at the Bankstown Sports Club - BiciSport delegates are John & Louise Crouchley
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 John Crouchley at present.
From July 2016 the Team Coaching role is being undertaken by John Crouchley and the Team Selector role is being undertaken by Mike O'Reilly. 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.
