Please note that the closing date for the AVCC National Veteran Cycling Championships is fast approaching. The Championships are to be held in Perth, Western Australia, from Friday 26th to Monday 29th September, 2014. More details on the Championships can be found on the West Coast Masters Cycling Council website, or you can enter online now. Cost is $25 per event.

Change of Start Time for Camperdown to Warrnambool

Please note that the starting time for the VVCC Camperdown to Warrnambool Open has been changed to 11.30am, from the former 10am. Start location and other details remain the same.

Change of Date for State Time Trial Championship

Please note that the date of the last of the VVCC Open Time Trial Series events at Paraparap, near Geelong, which is also the State Time Trial Championships, has been moved from the 17th August to the 31st of August, due to a clash with the Victorian Masters Road and Time Trial Championships.

VVCC Open Time Trial Series 2014

This winter the VVCC is holding a new time trial series, to be held 15th June, 13th July, and 31st August (note change of date). The series will consist of 3 events at 3 different locations, with the last event at Paraparap, near Geelong, incorporating the VVCC State Time Trial Championships.

The events are to be held at Learmonth, Woodstock on Loddon, and Paraparap, over 27km, 35km and 25km respectively. There will be prizes for placings on the day, plus an age adjusted Aggregate held over the three events for each division, as well as State Time Trial Championship awards presented at the final event.

Full details can be found on the VVCC Open Time Trial Series page.

Changes to VVCC Racing Rules

At the recent AVCC AGM, some additions were made to the AVCC racing rules, with the inclusion in Rule 6 (f) of clauses governing the use of disc brakes, mobile phones, and cameras attached to helmets.

Please familiarise yourself with these new rules under Rule 6 (f), covering equipment and clothing, on the Rules Page.

Club Referees Please Note

A recent audit of club Race Day Checklists has highlighted the fact that many clubs are not using the latest version of the Race Day Checklist form. Please check that you have and are using the latest version of the form, and are sending them to the State Secretary Dave Phillips at the end of each month.

Heat Stroke and Insurance

Members are advised that your insurance does not cover Heat Stroke or similar conditions when racing or training in hot weather.

Important Changes to Membership for 2014

This year there have been some important changes to VVCC membership. The Fixtures Booklet sent out in previous years will no longer be posted out with your licence, and your licence will be emailed to you with your receipt when you pay your online membership.

Please print out the receipt when you receive it, and keep it in a safe place. It is also a good idea to keep the email so that if you need to reprint the licence for any reason you still have it.

The VVCC Racing Rules and 2014 Events Calendar formerly found in the Fixtures Booklet can still be found on this site and some club sites.

Contacting the State Handicapper at Opens

Under no circumstances are riders to contact the State Handicapper at Opens to discuss their marks. Please go through your Club Handicapper if you have any issues with your mark at an Open.

Tail Lights Required

Riders are reminded that tail lights must be fitted to bikes at all VVCC and club events. They are to be attached securely to the bike, set to not flash (some riders are epileptic) and to be visible from at least 100 metres.
