Our Hamilton Wheelers Facebook group is open to anyone with a Cycling Australia Licence interested in racing with us, and not just members. Feel free to join us! Remember content is monitored and any abuse will not be tolerated and will be reported. The group is a place to organise rides, talk about racing, and all things 'bike', but is not a place for promoting businesses, selling or spamming.
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 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).
