GETTING STARTED: RIDE
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.
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
You can ask our Club Captains anything that you like at any time.
