‘Riding in bunches is a great way to meet other cyclist, stay motivated and learn the bicycle skills necessary…’

They say: We are a road cycling club based around the Thornleigh and Hornsby areas of Sydney’s North Shore. Our history dates back 70 years as a social and road racing club. Regular criterium road races run on Sundays and public holidays at Beaumont Road, Mt Ku-ring-gai and all grades are catered for. Club members also meet for regular group training rides throughout the week and weekends and anyone is welcome to join in and meet other club members. Riding in bunches is a great way to meet other cyclist, stay motivated and learn the bicycle skills necessary to ride safely on the roads and in race situations.

Club Cafe: Pierre’s Patisserie in Turramurra serves fresh French-style breads, pastries and cakes that are hand made on the premises. Pierre’s is the ultimate cafe for an after-ride treat. Kokoh in Wahroonga is also a regular pit-stop for Northern Sydney cyclists. They choose cafes based on there accessibility to routes and whether they accommodate cyclists well. A loyal bunch, once they find a place they like, they tend to stick with it.

Club Charity: As a non-profit club they do not regularly contribute to a specific charity. However, Northern Sydney Cycling Club and its members leveraged its size and resources to develop the Northern Sydney Cycling Academy – a junior development academy run in conjunction with all NSW cycling club members who wish to participate. Individual riders also have regular involvement with Youth Off The Streets charity and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
