Thanks for your interest in the Cammeray Roadies!
Since its founding in 2013 by Gareth Lloyd, the Cammeray Roadies has been committed to expanding cycling in Sydney’s North Shore, so we’re always thrilled when new people want to join our ranks.
We ask prospective new members go through the checklist below:
NEW RIDER CHECKLIST & INFO:
1) Sign up to Cycling Australia:
• Option 2: If you race, Click on option below and select NSW > MWCC.
The comprehensive RIDE+ option offers the same key benefits as RACE for roughly a third of the price, except for the ability to enter races.
RIDE BASIC has been specifically designed for those riders who are looking for affordable third party coverage with a heap of other benefits.
See a detailed Benefits list. You are also able to join for a short 1-month trial period to see if Cammeray Roadies is a good fit for you.
2) Join our Team App to view and join official rides.
PLEASE NOTE: We will only approve Team App requests from Cycling Australia members.
3) While you are waiting for approval, read through our Ride Guide.
4) For your first ride, join a Friday morning ride with the C group, see how you feel, then go from there. Don't forget a helmet, lights, spare tubes, pump/co2, and bell!
That's really about it; there will be lots of people in each group that will make you feel welcome and safe on the road!
• I'd like to give CR a try, can I do that?
Yes, you can now purchase a CA monthly membership with CR for $6 or $10. If you are a member of CA and have moved to the area, you can request a club transfer by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
• I can’t make Friday mornings. Can I still ride with Cammeray Roadies?
Yes, just shoot us an email at email@example.com
• Why haven’t I had my membership request on Team App approved yet?
Either you haven't filled out all the fields in your Team App request, or we simply haven’t got around to it yet. We’re run by a group of volunteers, so please be patient with us!
• Am I fit enough to ride with Cammeray Roadies?
Tough question over the Internet. We strive to be all-inclusive, but safety is our #1 priority, and a rider that's too far out of their depth can negatively impact safety.
If you feel you're not strong enough, hang around for our social functions and our occasional "intro" rides. These are at a very relaxed pace, and our members will offer no shortage of advice on how to get fast and fit!)
Cammeray Roadies is designed to encourage weekly cycling group rides around the Lower Nth Shore of Sydney, whether it be to improve fitness, train for a specific event, or to meet like-minded cyclists.
The club prides itself on its inclusiveness, welcoming riders of many different levels, and pioneering initiatives to increase cycling among all people, especially women.
Rides occur weekly on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays – further details on our Team App (link above) and Website: http://cammerayroadies.cc/
