Rider Insurance

As you may be aware from the recent news, a judgement for damages was handed down in the case of Franklin v Blick as a result of a cycling accident.

The committee is currently sourcing the full details of our current policy through the AVCC so that club members can understand what we are fully covered for. We'll keep you posted on the outcome.

Next Traffic Controller Course

As a result of the popular demand placed on the training so far, there will be one other training day scheduled for Saturday 22 November. This is an additional day supplied by Roads ACT. For ease of administration, Capital Cycling will take on the registration process for this training.

Fund Raising BBQ at the Crits

Some club members will be riding the Hartley Lifecare Challenge from Canberra to Mt Kosciusko and back in late November.

For the next four weeks they will be running a BBQ at the crits to raise some much needed funds for this wonderful cause that helps people living with disability in our community.

So after you have done the hardwork in your race, we encourage you to stick around and buy something to eat and drink.

Registration for 2015 is now open
