Volunteer Policy and Roster
Track is back!
Training is on again from May 13th 2018 at the Anna Meares Velodrome.
This year we are changing our approach. The challenge in the past has been delivering on a training program where the coaches were never certain who would be attending. Knowing in advance the rider and skill level will give the coaches the best chance to design a program to get us race ready. To achieve this, we are looking for upfront commitment and the best way to achieve that is upfront payment. The first block of training is for 8 weeks and will focus on skills such as bunch riding, handling and tactical skills that are essential for both road and track riders rather than strength training as we are aware that you are into your road racing during the winter. If you are a new or an experienced rider, developing these skills will improve your racing both on and off the track.
Our coach, Dave Wadsworth, holds a level 1 accreditation and currently trains the JETS riders and junior State level riders. Wadsy will cater to rider of all ages and skill level.
The trainings session will be held at AMV, Sundays 3.30pm to 5.30pm. Eight weeks of training is $160. Bargain!
Here are the training session dates:

Getting Started Guide
STEP 1. Get a Licence
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 Blue to join as a member, or Click Red to Purchase a Temporary Licence.
Wet Weather PolicyOur 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 and twitter as early as possible (6am weekends or 4:30pm for twilight series).

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.
Racing at Lakeside Park -Special Licence Required
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.
