Sydney Uni Velo Club was formed in 2010 as a road cycling club dedicated to the ongoing development of its riders, whether those riders ride for fitness or competitive reasons.
We are a club within the Sydney University Sports and Fitness (SUSF) organisation and SUVelo members receive the benefits of belonging to SUSF. We are affiliated with Cycling NSW and the national cycling body.
While we are closely associated with Sydney University, and many of our members are or have been students at the Uni, we have no prerequisites to membership. We have graded training rides most days which are open to all members, and regular social events to which all are welcome to attend.
We already have a strong racing presence at many venues, and are associated with several national teams. In 2017, the Club partnered with the NSW Institute of Sport to create a new women’s team in the National Road Series. Known as NSWIS – Sydney Uni, the team immediately experienced success in 2017 at the women’s Tour Down Under, and has continued to develop as a strong team through its first two seasons.
Of course no-one is required to race, but you will find many of our members are actively involved in racing, and there is strong competitive spirit across our bunches.
We have a progressive committee who work very hard to create a compelling and modern performance cycling environment including using the most modern communication channels.
