How to pin on your numberHere is the correct way to pin on your number for races with Hamilton Wheelers. We use a camera directly in line with the finish. This means you number must be clearly visible directly from side on.
- Pin you number across your ribcage (not on your back) when leant over in a sprint position
- Make sure it's on the correct side - right side for normal direction Nundah, left side for most road courses and reverse crits
- Check to make sure the number isn't folded over
- You can angle the number so it's vertical when leant over
- Extra pins are available if you need to make it more 'aero'
- 'My mate did it for me' is not a good excuse!
- Don't forget to claim your places straight after the race
Can you read all these numbers?
Track is Back!
As the dust settles on the track Nationals and Oceania Champs, with newly crowned National Champions in the club, Hamilton has teamed up with Ipswich and Gold Coast to host regular track training sessions.
The sessions will be Saturday afternoons at AMV kicking off on the 30th April and are open to accredited track riders from U13 to Masters. Club coaches will run the sessions and will be able to accommodate all levels from beginners to Champs.
Bookings are to be made through buncheur and a new link will be provided each week. Here’s the link for the 30th April
If you haven’t tried track riding or aren’t accredited for Anna Meares Velodrome (AMV) and would like to get involved, Auscycling run come and try sessions (C&T) every Saturday morning and accreditation sessions once a month following a C&T session. Furthermore, if you don’t yet have a track bike, one can be loaned/hired from Auscycling for the C&T and accreditation session which is an awesome way to try it out before investing in all the gear.
Sessions are listed on the Auscycling events calendar (filter on QLD and Track) and below are links to upcoming C&T and accreditation on the 30th April:

Traffic Controllers Needed
For Road Race Permits on open roads, the club now requires accredited event traffic marshals - just normal club volunteers can easily be accredited.
So to conduct road races at our locations like Elimbah and Pine Dam, we need a pool of members (18 years +) who have undertaken the short, on-line accreditation course offered by the State Government.
To ensure we can keep racing, the club is asking for anyone with an interest in this activity and who would like to complete the course, to do so.
The links below provide information and access to the course which takes approx 30 minutes. The club, of course, will pay for any expenses incurred by any member. This would be a great contribution to the club in an ongoing capacity and be greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Wayne (Willow) Wilson

Volunteer Roster - Nominate before your next race
This is a reminder for Hamilton Members about our Volunteering Roster.
All racing members (including riders who are members of more than one club) are required to assist with the running of a race just once per season (November through October). It's a great way to give something back to the sport and your club, and learn about what makes racing happen each week.
Our policy is that after racing twice, you must then nominate a date for assisting, otherwise your entry may be refused. We would like to avoid a situation where racing has to be cancelled or entries refunded or refused, so please jump on the website and nominate a date before your next race. You register via the website calendar, just find an event that requires volunteers and put down your name. The system will email you with reminders.
If you want to check, the members grading list has highlighted riders who need to nominate with the number of races you've done and your nominated date so use that to check.
Hamilton Wheelers Weekly e-mail reminder
If you have subscribed to our weekly E-Newsletters but are not receiving them (usually on Tuesday evenings), please check your junk mail or spam mail folder.
If the club emails are there, change your settings to accept these emails in the future. Hotmail spam filters have always caused problems with our email newsletters – please subscribe using a different email address if possible.

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.

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 AusCycling race licence.
You can join a club and obtain a licence online through through the AusCycling Membership system (you can also click on the image below). There are various membership options to suit what sort of riding you are into, but if you'd like to race you will need a Race-All Discipline licence which now let's your race in Road, Track, BMX, MTB and Cyclocross.
Costs vary depending on age, and you can elect to pay for 12 months, or month-by-month.
If you are not sure about racing and just want to give it a go you can get a Free 4 Week Trial membership which is a great offer. This offer is only open to riders who have not held a racing licence in the last 3 years. It offers the opportunity for people to try out racing (club races only) for 4 weeks from the date of purchase. During this period, you can race with any club that supports this product (as many times as you like) noting normal race participation fees apply. Note that a Free Membership Trial is not a membership with any club (Hamilton or otherwise) so you are not eligible for Club only events (such as interclub or club championship races).
