Vets Cycling Club
About the Club
Grampians Veteran Cycling Club is
based in the Central Western part of Victoria, Australia,
around the famous Grampians Ranges. The club was formed
in 1996 to cater for the needs of older riders, who
up until then had to
travel long distances to find specific
veteran events, or ride against much younger riders.

VCV Life Membership to Tony Lloyd
The Grampians Vets would like to congratulate Tony Lloyd on receiving a life membership from the VCV at a recent Delegates Meeting in Geelong. Tony was a founding member of the Grampians Club and served as its President and/or secretary from 1996 to 2006, and the Vice President in more recent times. Tony is also currently serving as the VCV Treasurer, and is in his 4th year of service, as well as the Grampians VCV
Delegate, and travels to Geelong every two months to the meetings. Tony has served as the Delegate every year except for the first, so that is stamina!! Thanks Tony from all club members for your many years of dedication to cycling and the Grampians Vets. A well earned award!
