Junior Skills Session
Upcoming EventsOur events are usually on Saturdays but there is the odd Sunday race when Nundah is unavailable. Our Time Trials at Pinkenba are also always on Sundays to avoid traffic. We also have our popular wednesday afternoon Twilight Series commencing Wed Nov 29th.
Please double check the start times on the Calendar as events start at the earlier time of 6:45am during summer to avoid the heat. We have also rearranged the schedule of events for Nundah racing, starting with A & D grades at 6:45am, and also introducing an off-track junior skills session before junior racing commences at 9:20am.

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.

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).
