Tomorrow we open the doors to AusCycling representing over 52,000 members across BMX, BMX Freestyle, Cyclo-Cross, E-Sport, Mountain Bike, Para-Cycling, Road, Track and Lifestyle (recreational and commuter) riding throughout Australia. What started as a brave vision becomes a reality tomorrow! It's incredibly exciting and we can now move into the future together.
The task ahead building AusCycling will be as rewarding as it will be challenging. We have an unprecedented opportunity to secure the future of our great sport for generations to come. We start with very strong foundations - financially secure, a great team of experienced and enthusiastic staff, thousands of coaches, officials and volunteers. Most importantly, an amazing membership base from preschoolers to our oldest member of 94 years of age.
We open our doors with the largest growth in cycling in our history and we will seize the opportunity. Our vision is to make Australia a nation of bike riders, to advocate for our riders’ safety, build strong club communities and to make all forms of cycling accessible to everyone be it on a track, off a jump, in the great Australian bush or on the road.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen, from the management of the National Sporting Organisations, the State Sporting Organisations, support from Sport Australia, State Governments, Local Councils, advocates in the states, the clubs and every one of our 52,000 plus members who embraced the bold vision we have for the great sport of cycling.
Onward and upward, welcome to AusCycling.
