Cradle Coast Cycling Club

(formed in 1992 as the Coastal Senior Cycling Club Inc)




Information for members:

Welcome to the Cradle Coast Cycling Club for the 2019/2020 season. It is hoped that we will have an enjoyable and safe season. 

The Club will hold a variety of races in the form of graded handicap, graded time trial, graded teams handicap, sealed handicap and team time trial.  Riders are encouraged to have a ‘warm up’ ride prior to each race. 

Membership/Race Entry fees for the 2019/2020 season are:

·         Full Membership: $20.00

·         Volunteer: $5:00 (this fee is paid by the CCCC Inc.)

·         Race entry fee:  $7.00


Membership is open to male and female riders. Under 17's (15-16 years) and Seniors (17years+).   All that is required is an approved bicycle (with tail light) of any type and an approved helmet. Individual riders are responsible for ensuring their bicycles are in a sound mechanical condition prior to each race.

Race registration is to be completed 25 minutes prior to the race start in order to allow for handicap/grading adjustments.  Please ensure that you are registered on time as penalties may be imposed (or non-entry into races) if you are not registered on time.

Any queries regarding your handicap should be taken up with the handicapper after the race.

Lead and tail vehicles are used for rider’s safety whilst club marshals also assist to warn traffic during cycle races. Riders are encouraged to volunteer for car and line duties. Drivers on escort car and sign duties will be offered $15 toward fuel costs. A driver must be a registered club member prior to driving (volunteer membership is paid by CCCC).

The CCCC is its own entity and is affiliated with Cycling Australia.  All riders competing in any races will need to hold a current Cycling Australia licence.
