Race & Ride Memberships
New and renewing memberships with the Darwin Cycling Club (DCC) are done via the Cycling Australia membership website. See below if you are upgrading from Ride to Race.
Details and costs of the different types of Race, Ride+, Ride and non Riding memberships with the DCC can be found here. Each type varies with the level of insurance cover.
All memberships are for 12 months except the Race - '2 month starter kit' and Race - '7 day'. Monthly payments can be made but the membership is for 12 months.
If you are planning to only race with DCC choose a Regional Race membership type as these are cheaper. This can be 'topped-up' with a Race 7 day membership if you also want to race occasionally with other clubs outside the NT. A regional membership with DCC also allows racing with Alice Springs Cycling Club.
The National memberships allow you to ride with interstate cycling clubs, however if you are intending to compete in NRS, State or National championships you must purchase a full Race Elite membership regardless of your age.
MTBA (mountain bike), BMXA and Triathlon Australia members are eligible for a discount on their Cycling Australia Race membership. To receive your discount, purchase your CA Race Membership, then email a copy of your MTBA, BMXA or Triathlon membership card or membership receipt (which shows a minimum of three months remaining) to Membership@cycling.org.au.
Families can also apply for a discount prior to joining/renewing, see the Forms section below.
Upgrading from Ride to Race
If you hold a current Ride or Ride+ membership you can upgrade the remaining period to a Race membership by contacting Cycling Australia directly. You will be charged a pro-rata rate. Contact 03 9998 6810 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can purchase a 2 month starter kit or a 7 day Race membership as a 'top-up' for racing.
