If you want to race in South Australia the first thing you need to decide is which system you want to race under.

1. Cycling South Australia - http://www.sa.cycling.org.au/

Disciplines: Road, track, cyclocross

The South Australian Cycling Federation Incorporated (Cycling SA) is the controlling and sanctioning body for the disciplines of track and road racing in South Australia. It is governed by the rules of the world controlling body, the UCI and the national body, Cycling Australia.

Cycling SA and its affiliated Clubs offer road and track race and training programs for all categories of  membership, from Junior Under-11 Boys & Girls to Masters Men and Women Over 65.

Three levels of membership are offered - a full racing licence [GOLD LICENSE] enables you to enter all cycle races (in the appropriate category) run under Cycling SA or Cycling Australia auspices - you will also have personal accident and third party insurance which covers you while training and racing.  

Non-competitive cyclists are also catered for through the Ride License [SILVER LICENSE] categories. This provides recreational membership with the same level of insurance and access to facilities (including access to the track) that racing members enjoy. 

Coaching and Commissaires (cycling officials) [PLATINUM LICENSE] provides training and acceditation to all members
