Welcome to the Hume Veterans Cycling Club Inc.

Our Club is affiliated with the Veteran Cycling Victoria (V.C.V.) and the Australian Veteran Cycling Council (A.V.C.C.) which caters for veteran aged racing.
The age for membership is 30 years and over for females and 35 years and over for males. These ages are taken from Jan 1st in the year of a riders birth date.
There are currently eleven affiliated clubs in Victoria with membership in excess of 1000. The Hume Vets have a current membership of 30.
We meet to race once a month on a Sunday on a range of courses including Benalla, Glenrowan and a couple of courses north of Wangaratta, which vary in distance from 44 km to 66 km and once a month (on alternate fortnights) to race with the G. V. Vets at Dookie. Some courses are flat, some hilly and some in between.
Races are mainly handicapped events to cater for all levels of ability and thus giving everyone an equal chance of success. We also run the odd Graded Scratch race to meet everyone's needs.
Our Club races commence at 10 a.m. and most are finished by 11.45 a.m. During the summer's three months (December - February), start time is 9 a.m. to combat any possible heat conditions.
For those who've never held an Australian Vet's Licence, nor used a 'come & try permit' previously and would like to 'have a go' at racing, there is available a Free - 'come & try - racing permit' that allows you two free trials at racing to see if racing suits you. For this you need to contact the Club Secretary in advance of the days you wish to try out (please note that conditions apply).
Holders of a full A.V.C.C. licence, can race in any event in Australia where an A.V.C.C. sanctioned race is run, so you're not just limited to riding with our Club.
During each calendar year, each of the 11 affiliated Victorian clubs are invited to stage an Open Event which incorporates an aggregate points system.
