HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH REDLANDS CYCLING AND MULTISPORT CLUB?

 
About Us

The Redlands Cycling and Multisport Club is unique in Queensland, first established in 1970, and has been hugely successful.  It is a full Cycling and Multisport Club and therefore provides membership options that are held with either Cycling Australia (for those only interested in cycling), or provides a combined Triathlon Australia and Cycling Australia membership.  

 

For individuals interested in the multisport side, the Club not only offers programs and training opportunities that are available via other triathlon clubs (at a significantly cheaper cost in most cases), but it goes one step further.  It offers the added benefit of fast tracking your cycling performance by tapping into cycling training, opportunities and skills, that only cycling clubs can offer.  Many triathletes are forced to join both a cycling club and a triathlon club to get the same benefit and pay multiple Club fees in doing so.  At the Redlands Cycling and Multisport club you only pay the one club fee. 


The Club caters for beginners, age groupers and elite athletes within cycling and triathlon.  And keep in mind that many of our programs and training sessions are free!  


The Club prides itself on providing a family friendly and supportive environment and also challenging training opportunities that aim to maximise your ability to achieve your cycling and multisport goals.
