Melbourne Cycling League is an incorporated cycling club, affiliated with Cycling Victoria.
We welcome anyone, young or old, male or female , to join Melbourne Cycling League. One of the clubs primary points of differentiation is a desire to create a networked community of people with a passion for riding a bike, whoever you are.
Cycling culture is unique, it is one that is as social as it can be competitive. Social connections are increasingly important in developing networks, and as a result more and more connections are being made on the road.
Melbourne Cycling League recognises this and provides a formal club environment in which business and the pleasure of riding a bike can be mixed.
Melbourne Cycling League is innovative, connected, engaged and an influential voice in Melbourne cycling. We host regular events both on and off the road. Membership categories range from Elite to Recreational catering for all rider abilities. Social memberships are also available.
The bulk of member fees are paid to Cycling Australia and Cycling Victoria. Melbourne Cycling League will cap its portion of membership fees at $25 across all categories.
We like racing, but we also respect many clubs have this offering and do it well. At MCL, we like to create races in new and exciting locations, supporting the existing racing culture in Melbourne. MCL members with a racing license are able to race at other club criteriums, certain winter combine/club races and open events.
We’re always up for a chat, so if you have any questions please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org , or follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up with everything cycling.
We have several membership options available to suit your circumstances.
A primary difference between the racing/recreation and social memberships is the inclusion of insurance provided by Cycling Australia when you take out a racing/recreation membership.
Full details of the insurance inclusions can be found here.
In each instance, Melbourne Cycling League caps the club portion of the fee to $25.
