Start racing with your local club

If you’re new to bike racing, your local cycling club is the place to start. Many clubs host weekly racing on road, track or both.

Find your nearest cycling club using our Club Finder tool.

Step up to State Opens

Once you’ve had a taste of club racing, you’re going to want more. That’s when it’s time to challenge yourself to a State Open.

State Opens bring together bigger fields of riders from all across NSW, with a large variety of courses and more prizes on offer. For many cyclists, winning a State Open is their major season goal.

As well as the racing itself, a State Open is a great excuse for a weekend away with your clubmates. There are divisions and handicaps to suit all abilities.

Plan your racing season by checking our State Open Event Calendar.

Race Licences

In order to race, you’ll need a racing licence with Cycling Australia. 

If you’re just dipping your toes into the racing waters, grab a One Week Race licence or 2-Month Race Starter. There’s no commitment if you choose not to keep racing.

For the best value, full member benefits and access to State Opens and , sign up for an annual race licence.

Sign up for a racing licence at the Cycling Australia Membership Portal, or alternatively, upgrade from an existing Ride Membership.
