The Club Come and Try initiative is designed to provide riders new to a discipline, with the opportunity to experience riding a bike in a fun and safe environment with the support of the local AusCycling Club.


AusCycling will provide insurance cover to all AusCycling Club Come and Try participants free of charge for the duration of the Come and Try session. This insurance is a temporary arrangement available to non-members of AusCycling who participate in AusCycling Club Come and Try sessions. Participants will receive the benefits of the AusCycling 4 Week Free Trial membership, the details of which can be found here.

The insurance is NOT to be used for racing events, mass participation rides or charity rides. It is also not intended for participants who frequently attend club sessions (no more than 4 Come and Try sessions). It is the club’s responsibility to identify these participants and encourage them to sign up as a 4 Week Free Trial member, or purchase an AusCycling membership.

AusCycling classifies a ‘racing event’ as an event containing any of the below elements. These events are deemed a Club Race event and are not Come and Try sessions.

  • There is a start and finish line
  • Timing
  • Prizes for performance
  • Podium

If your Club wants to host a race event, then the event must operate in accordance with the AusCycling Technical Regulations. Therefore, the club would need to check riders have valid and appropriate race membership or purchase an event license, or become a 4 Week Free Trial member to participate in the event.
