Hi AC folks,
I have decided that I am now ready for racing, I am looking into joining PACC ( any reason why I should join PACC? )
Firstly, as I am aware I will need to get CA racing licence, either Elite or Masters (MAS3)
Do I have to wait till I get actual licence to start racing or use receipt as proof? which enables me to race in any category?
Secondly what are the yearly membership fee's for PACC and what are the costs for PACC lycra e.g. bib and jersey, who is the best person to contact and is it too late for me to register for the Hector Fletcher race?
Do I need to wear PACC jersey / bibs for races or wear any other lycra?
Looking forward to your responses
Edit - I have sourced through the PACC website, its a wealth of info there

Well all the cool people join PACC.
Firstly you already know how friendly they are :) And you'd look good in black and white too.
I will now hand this over to Gemma I imagine...
No reason why you shouldn't join PACC, but what about Southern Vets at McLaren Flat?
You can jump on the back of a bunch to see if you like it for free (then join up if you do), try not to contest the sprint though!
Yay!! Thats a bit exciting!
I joined PACC earlier this year, and they have been awesome. From what i can see - big enough to be pretty active (running events) and competitive, but small enough to give a shit about individual members at all levels. Once i paid for my licence etc, a paper receipt was all i needed for the 1st race (as the licence hadn't arrived in time)...
Gemma K is definitely the best person to ask - she is on the committee and organises a lot of the stuff (like club kits etc).
...oh! and you dont even have to remove a few teeth to be eligible ;)
Hey Rob D,
Yes I recently joined PACC because I wanted to race some track. As I met others within PACC they encouraged me to look beyond the track and have a go at a few other events. Great club because it has great people, who share their knowledge and experience. Dont use the excuse, "I will join up when Im fit enough because it will never happen...as Noel McCarthy from Bike Station once told me, you have to race to get race fit....it will bring you up to a new level."
you have to race to get race fit....it will bring you up to a new levelAbsolutely... I first started racing a few years ago after quite a few years of recreational riding. Within a couple of months of regular crits it was like I'd been fitted with a turbocharger! (not really, but in comparison it was.) If nothing else it teaches you to really suffer, for some reason the body is capable of a lot more when there is a stopwatch going and a number pinned on your back...
