Changes to 2019 Cycling Australia memberships

Cycling Australia is restructuring its membership process in 2019.  The first change is that memberships now expire on the anniversary of renewal (e.g. if you renew on 13 February 2019, your membership will expire on 12 February 2020), rather than the calendar based system.  It has also introduced a monthly payment option for race memberships which you can elect to do via the links below.  Monthly memberships have a slightly higher fee (approximately 10%) to allow for administration fees.
