GETTING STARTED: RIDE

20140807 SocialQuickStart.jpg

If you've seen us riding in the #greenwhiteblack and you're keen to get involved this Quick Start Guide is for you.

Step one: CONTACT US.

Contact the Club Captains to discuss what the club can offer you and let us know if you are interested in joining us for a ride.

Step TWO: JOin us for a ride.

Riding with a Club gives you access to a range of rides with like minded people and your first step is to join the Club for a Sunday Club Ride.

We call this a 'test ride' where you can meet some Club Members, ask as many questions as you like, learn a little bit about riding in a group, and get a feel for whether the Club is for you.

We recommend signing up for a Cycling Australia Recreational (Silver) - 3 Month Membership ($28) at minimum that will give you 3 months of access to the full range of Membership benefits.

As long as you have a road bike with clip-in shoes, some comfortable clothing and a helmet you're ready to start!

This is a social ride where nobody gets left behind and usually covers around 60-70km in 3 hours.

Step THREE: UPGRADE your membership.

If you enjoyed your 'test ride' you are welcome to continue riding with us, just remember to upgrade your 3 month licence before it runs out!

To ride with the Club you need a Recreational (Silver) Licence

Twelve month Recreational Licences are available all year around, with renewals coming up each Quarter.

You can do everything online and you can contact our Secretary if you need a little bit of help.

Step FOUR: get the #greenwhiteblack

You'll want to tell people that you're a Member of the Club, and the best way to do that is to wear the #greenwhiteblack.

Our Club Shop carries a range of comfortable and high quality Club Kit that you can try on and purchase. It's all manufactured locally by Tineli.

Step fIVE: where to from there?

Every rider is different, so we can't tell you exactly where you'll head from here but there are plenty of things that the Club does year-round that may be of interest:

  • Weekly rides are on regularly for you to train and enjoy getting fitter and faster
  • Our #kpchallengeridesseries program offers a variety of long and challenging rides throughout the year
  • There are plenty of opportunities to Volunteer from joining a Committee or Sub-Committee to lending a hand with Social Media, Event Management or just a few hours every now and again at our events
  • You might like to have a go at racing to see what all the fuss is about, and we run Criterium Racing Training for a few weeks in a row twice a year that is the perfect opportunity go give it a go in a non-threatening and safe environment

Questions?

You can ask our Club Captains anything that you like at any time.
