Looks like fun to me! Not that I'll be in Australia any time soon.

Great Website though.

Great website! The "New Members Tips" is something that every cycling club should link to. Much of the information applies to all type of cycling, not just racing.

I was in Australia a couple of times about 10 yrs. ago for work. I didn't get in any riding, but picked up a "Jones Cycling" jersey.

It looks like the Master's focus on racing and the multiple levels of competition really provide an easy point of entry for everyone.

After each event, from the bike computers, members fill out a stat board which is added to the 'grade statistics' database. It has just started and already shows fantastic speed and time averages.
