The Townsville Cycle Club was formed in 1992 after an amalgamation of three separate clubs in Townsville, and the council built a 333m velodrome and hall as their clubhouse.
The club comprises seven volunteer committee members and several coaches and commissaires that assist in running events across the year.
The club has hosted the Oceania Track Champs in 1995, several road racing events, including the local Memorial road races, Gold Fever Le Tour, Great Northern Tours and the Junior State Road titles as recently as 2018.
They host beginner clinics for people of all ages and have commenced their own specific women's clinics on the track and will look to translate this to the road.
The velodrome was irreparably damaged in the floods of 2019, and through State and Federal Government grants, they were able to redevelop the velodrome.
The club will continue to hold road events this year, both club and inter-club, and hopes to have their velodrome fully functional in time for their premier track event, the Townsville Cup on Wheels, in September 2021.
As a region, the club prides itself on how they communicate and coordinate their road and track calendars, so members from the Cairns, Mackay, Townsville, Rockhampton and Mt Isa region can compete at respective events.
