Why do I need to be a member of Cycling Australia/MTBA to be a member of Lead Out Cycling?
- As Cycling Australia coaches we require the members of Lead Out Cycling to be Cycling Australia members. This covers you in the case of an accident. We also need members to have this for our own insurance when conducting our club training rides.
What type of membership should I have?
- The minimum membership from Cycling Australia is the Silver membership.
- If you plan to participate in some of the local races you will need the Gold membership.
- If you are considering Mountain Bike racing then you will need the MTBA Membership.
- The insurance cover for Cycling Australia, BMXA and MTBA members will cover you 24/7 on the bike and includes personal accident, public liability & loss of income benefits.
I have recently bought a bike and need some help getting started – can you help?

I have been a keen cyclist for a few years and would like to try criterium racing – where do I start?
- Lead Out Cycling will create a program that is based on the skills required to ride as a entry level criterium racer, and will provide information on the most suitable races for your skill level.
Does Lead Out Cycling match me with riders of similar standards on the group rides?
