vvcc_open

VVCC Open races can be entered online via the VVCC Website

Entries can now only be done online. New riders need to have completed 3 club races before you can enter an Open.

Club Membership join online now

The Grampians Veterans Cycling Club is affiliated with the Victorian Veterans Cycling Council (VVCC), and the Australian Veterans Cycling Council (AVCC), so membership with the Grampians Vets gives you an AVCC licence, entitling you to compete with any Vets club in Victoria or Australia that is affiliated with the AVCC.

The VVCC is the controlling body for Veteran Cycling in Victorian and the AVCC is the umbrella organisation for Veteran Cycling in Australia.

Eligibility

Membership is open to women 30 years and older, and men 35 years and older. Membership lasts from the 1st of January each year, to the 31st of December. Ages are taken from the 1st of January each year, so if you were to turn 40 in November 2014, then you are deemed to be 40 from the 1st of January to the 31st of December 2014.

First Time Membership

If you are joining for the first time, or have let your membership lapse and wish to rejoin, you can join after the 1st of October for the following year, that is you get 15 months membership instead of 12 months for the first year. This is so that riders do not have to wait until after the 1st of January to race if they wish to join late in the year, in which case they would otherwise have had to pay full membership for only a few months. For more information on online registration see below.

Trial Ride

New riders who have not raced in any AVCC affiliated race before are entitled to one trial race without joining a club. They will be asked on the day to complete a form which will provide insurance for that one day. After the trial ride they will need to join a Vets club to continue racing.

Online Registration - JOIN ONLINE NOW

All Vets memberships Australia wide are now done online through the one portal. If you do not have internet access or a credit card, then a paper form can be filled out, and you can pay CASH to the club Secretary, Treasurer or President, who will register you online. Please, no cheques made out to the club.

To Join for the First Time
To join for the first time, start by clicking on "New Membership", then selecting your state body, then the local club is Grampians Vets, then the rest is just a matter of filling out the details.

To Renew Membership
