January 29, 2023

Vikings and Canberra Cycling Clubs are excited to announce the 2023 Road Race calendar.

Alivio Tourist Park have helped keep our road races going and we are pleased to say they have signed on to be our sponsor for a second year running! Keep an eye out in our newsletter for the great deals they are offering our members.

There are also some exciting new changes to our race calendar for 2023. Firstly Uriarra Roubaix has evolved into the Hayman Classic, with Canberra Cycling Club’s stalwart Matt Hayman agreeing to lend his name to the new course and event.

Secondly, the Iron Mike classic is set to evolve into a 3 stage event. Over the June long weekend, the plan is for a short prologue Time Trial and a Criterium on Saturday, with the Iron Mike course road race on the Sunday.

The Canberra Junior Tour will also be back, with 3 stages over 2 days at the end of May.

See the 2023 Road Race calendar for full details and keep an eye out on our socials for when entries open.

Finally, we want to thank all our volunteers and club committee members that help run these races.

If you enjoy racing or joining our club rides, please look ahead in the calendar to see where you can help in 2023. In 2022, we received 161 volunteer nominations through our podio volunteer sign up form. This is in addition to the many volunteer hours that CCC and VCC committee members and coaches spend organising and running training, racing activities, social events, and other administrative tasks. 

With the exception of paid traffic controllers, every role in our club is filled by a volunteer club or community member like you. By volunteering for your club you are directly helping yourself, your club mates, juniors, and the broader cycling community in the ACT. 

In short, the club doesn’t run without volunteers. Thank you.
