A Grade pic to come
The annual Hamilton Twilight Criterium Series is on again! There are six races over summer on a Wednesday afternoon. As there is not enough light to run all of our usual grades, we only run four senior grades.
A Grade (for riders already graded as A with Hamilton)
B1 Grade (for riders already graded as B1 with Hamilton)
B2 Grade (for riders already graded as B2 with Hamilton, or any male riders under 50 years only graded as C1)
C Grade (for male riders already graded as C1 and who are 50 years or older, any riders already graded as C2 with Hamilton, and any female riders graded as C1 or C2)
All juniors U17 and younger must race in the Junior Races only
To be sure check your grading on the Twilight Grading List - if you haven't raced with us for a while you may need to re-apply
If you have changed clubs or membership number please advise the handicappers - this is not an automatic process.
Here is a highlights package from Round 1 courtesy of Kim Flesser. ( Please note that special permission was given to use an onboard camera, we don't permit cameras otherwise)
As these races are short and fast, and attract large fields of riders, they are not suitable for novice racers. For this safety reason, riders new to racing and on Starter Pack licences are not eligible for entry.
Wet Weather Policy: Our policy is that a call to cancel or modify the race schedule will only be made at the track by the chief commissaire. Should there be a cancellation every effort will be made to notify via the front page of this website, facebook page & group by 4:30pm.

About our Club
The Hamilton Wheelers Cycling Club was formed in 1908 when it was known as Hamilton Amateur Wheelers and has conducted competition cycle races since then.
We conduct criterium races at the Albert Bishop Park Criterium Course at Hedley Ave Nundah which is also the site of the HPRW Clubhouse, and at Lakeside Park (previously known as Lakeside International Raceway) the home of many great car and motorcycle races in the past. During the winter season we conduct road races (both scratch race and handicaps), time trials and a hill climb at various open road locations such as Closeburn (near Samford), Elimbah, Pine Dam, Somerset Dam and Mt Mee.
Getting started in competitive cycling is easy. To race you need to be a member of a Queensland cycling club and also have a Cycling Australia race licence. You can join a club and obtain a licence online through through the Cycling Australia Membership HQ or click the button below or alternatively contact our club secretary directly who can help you complete and application form and accept your affiliation fee. If you are not sure about it and just want to give it a go you may purchase a temporary licence to try it out. The 3 race temporary licence is the best value.
Click HERE to join as a racing member. There are options for different age riders, and also the option to pay monthly. Schedule of costs is below.
Click HERE to Purchase a Race Starter Kit. This membership is only for people who have not held a race membership with Cycling Australia previously. It offers the opportunity for people to try out racing (club races only) for two months from the date of purchase. During the two month period, you can race with any club that supports this product (as many times as you like) noting normal race participation fees apply. Should Cycling Australia identify that you have held a race membership previously, you will be charged a full 12 months race membership. Note that a Race Starter Kit in not membership with a cycling club (Hamilton or otherwise) so you are not eligible for Club only events (such as interclub or club championship races).
