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.
