Racing with Activ

Our racing development is done "on-the-road", and augmented by regular group events where we

Who can race

You.

Racing is done at several different levels, from our fun and social weekend events, to Lifecycle club racing every month, to open racing.

If you've got a bike, and a desire to challenge yourself and others, then there is a level of racing that will meet your needs.

Licences

Silver Licence - The Silver Licence ($85) is valid for club races with Lifecycle. Lifecycle's club racing scene is an excellent way to get started in racing for much less initial outlay than a Gold Licence.

Gold Licence - The Gold Licence ($230-$310) is valid for all open events and is required to race at any of the big races of the season.

3 Day Licence - It is possible to purchase a 3 day licence ($40) which is valid at 3 individual days of racing. Many races will not allow the 3-day licence as it is typically used by inexperienced racers.

If you're unsure of whether you'd like to race or not then we recommend purchasing a Silver Licence and doing a few club races before upgrading to an open Gold licence.

Getting Started

  1. Register at Queensland Cycling - Registration - you will need to select a club - if you want to race in the Activ kit or in Lifecycle club races, then you will need to join Lifecycle. We recommend the Lifecycle club.
  2. Signup on the mailing list
  3. Email racing@activcyclecoaching.com with any questions or advice on when the next appropriate race will be.

Race Progression

We recommend that you come down for our outdoor session at Nundah and Murarrie. These are training sessions that stress some of the skills of racing.

Once you've done some training sessions and have demonstrated the ability to hold your line, corner, brake and accelerate suitably you will be able to race in the beginner crits as part of the Lifecycle club.

Once you've completed several criteriums you will be assessed and we will recommend the next open races
