About the Club
The Club’s home base is Woodstock Hall, about 25 km west of Bendigo, where many events start and finish. Races are also held at Newbridge, Emu Creek, Maryborough, Inglewood, Castlemaine, Harcourt, Bagshot and other locations around central Victoria, providing a variety of challenging and interesting courses. The Club welcomes all standards of riders: males over 35 and females over 30, experienced and novice, fit and hoping to get fit. Most races are handicap events run over distances of between 30 and 70 kilometres which gives every rider a chance of winning. Some races are scratch events and criteriums and racing is held on most Saturday afternoons. There is no racing in January and during daylight savings in February and March races are scheduled on Sunday mornings to avoid the worst of the heat. A very successful summer series is held on Wednesday evenings at Emu Creek during daylight savings months.
Members must have a VVCC (Victorian Veteran Cycling Council) licence to compete. The cost of a licence is set by the umbrella organisation, the AVCC and also covers the cost of insurance. A “trail-ride” system means that riders new to racing can compete in an event for the first time without committing to the full licence. The Central Victorian Veteran’s Cycling Club’s aim is to provide safe and enjoyable bike racing for all veteran riders in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The races listed in this fixture provide a good mix of courses and distances Most of our events are sponsored, so please support the firms who support us.
