How to Join
Free four-week trial
You need to have a club membership or 4-week trial membership with AusCycling to join our group rides.
If you haven’t been an AusCycling member in the past 3 years you can sign up for a free 4-week trial membership. The trial membership gives you all the benefits of AusCycling membership for free while you try it out, including insurance coverage. Don’t forget to choose Birrarung Cycling Club when asked to select a club.
To join the club, go to AusCycling here, choose Lifestyle Adult** and when asked to select a club, choose Birrarung Cycling Club. Lifestyle Adult is $115 for the year (including club membership) and provides you with insurance coverage whenever you ride (except when racing). Concession and monthly payment options are also available.
If you’re planning to race you will need a Race membership. You can find out more information about the options available here. If you intend to race on the road, get the Race – All Discipline, if you only race MTB and CX, get the Race – Of Road option.
** Note - the Lifestyle Basic membership only provides third party public liability insurance. It does not cover you in case of an accident. We recommend all members, especially those joining us on regular road rides, have the ‘full’ Lifestyle membership or a Race membership.
