Summer racing is here!

Summer Race Calendar

In response to consistent feedback from members, the Geelong Cycling Club has completely overhauled the summer race calendar.  Where previously the calendar was heavily weighted towards daytime criterium races, we now offer a mix of times and events that caters for road racers of all levels and interests.  We have also made major changes to both the entry and marshaling duties – which translates to more racing and better value from your club membership.  Finally, we have conducted a comprehensive review of prizes and prize money, and made changes to the awarding of these.
