Tamworth Cycle Club 2018 Annual Report

In the past year, we have continued to see an increase in participation in the sport of cycling, particularly in our junior numbers (thanks to Luke O’Connor), our female membership numbers, and in our Ride+ (recreational) Memberships. The level of professionalism in our events and marketing has also received widespread commendation thanks to the hard work of Race Coordinator Rob Wright and our Marketing Team Daniel Nash and Alicia Massey. 

 

In 2018, we have again had a full complement of board members, who have worked to balance the needs of our broad and diverse member base, and to promote the sport of cycling across the Tamworth region, as per our Constitution. Thank you to everyone who contributed to such a positive year. Please read the Annual Report and the Treasurer's Report for further detail, and feel free to contact us for further information at contactus@tamworthcycleclub.org.au

Tamworth Cycle Club Project and Program Plan 2018-2019

Tamworth Cycle Club is proud to have an active and diverse group of volunteers who work cohesively together to deliver a variety of programs for our members. On 23 September 2018, a number of our members contributed at a planning day to prepare for the programs the Club will deliver over the next twelve months. While the attached plan is by no means exhaustive, it provides a good overview of where the Club is headed and why! We welcome your feedback, and encourage you to contact us at secretary@tamworthcycleclub.org.au if you have further thoughts, or would like to volunteer your time.

Sponsored Kit

We're proud of our Club, and we're keen to see as many people as possible racing and representing in our Club kit. Having said this - Cycling NSW makes allowance for cyclists to wear CNSW approved sponsorship apparel where certain conditions are met. Some examples of the kits you'll see here in Tamworth would include Baiocchi Griffin, Ashford Air Conditioning, BC Bike Shop and BikeFix. The TCC Club Secretary manages the registration of these kits, and ensures they stay up to date. If you have any questions about the process, you can read more on the Cycling NSW website at the link below. Please note, the kits pictured are not always up to date! If you have a question about this, please feel free to contact secretary@tamworthcycleclub.org.au

Sharing the road - Etiquette for cyclists

Membership of Tamworth Cycle Club is not just for elite cyclists. Your support of your local Club allows us to work for you in seeking better infrastructure and services for all cyclists in our region.

 

Further, membership of Tamworth Cycle Club provides access to insurance through Cycling Australia that protects you and others in the event of an accident.

Tamworth Cycle Club believes that all cyclists have a responsibility to share the road with other road users, whether riding alone, in a bunch, or in a sanctioned Tamworth Cycle Club event. You can read more about safe riding in this useful booklet from our friends at Sydney Cycle Club.
