BEFORE YOU JOIN - ROAD CYCLISTS

• You must have a road bike with drop handlebars in sound mechanical and roadworthy condition.

 

• We don’t allow time trial bikes or bikes with aero / tri bars or flat bars as they are not safe for group rides.

 

• Have a reasonable amount of bike skills and fitness to keep up with us. If you can complete 7 laps of Centennial Park in an hour or less you should be fine (27kph average).

 

• Have front and rear lights if riding in the dark and spare tubes and tools in case of mechanical issues.

 

HOW TO JOIN - ROAD CYCLISTS

1. Email introride@sydneycyclingclub.org.au with a completed SCC T&C form (see bottom of this page) and a brief description of your cycling ability & experience.

2. You will be emailed confirmation of your place on the intro ride but please be patient. The club is run by volunteers who are very busy so you might not get an immediate reply but we promise you will get an email before the next intro ride. The intro ride is generally held on the first Saturday of each month.

 
3. Read the SCC Etiquette Guide and familiarise yourself with our rules and calls.
 
4. Attend the intro ride (check your confirmation email for details.) We ask all new members to attend even if you have previous bunch riding experience as SCC calls and rotations are different to other clubs.

5.
Become an official member of SCC by selecting a membership from the Aus Cycling website and choose Sydney CC as your club when prompted. The club secretary will confirm your membership and email you a welcome pack.
 
6. Come for a ride with us. At the beginning of your first ride, introduce yourself to the bunch captain and ride at the back of the bunch so you can get used to riding in a SCC bunch. We recommend the Fri-Yay ride for your first ride with the club as it's flat and an easy pace.
 
Please see our FAQ below if you have any questions and if you still can't find an answer then please contact... secretary@sydneycyclingclub.org.au
