Northern Beaches Cycling Club
Strategic Plan – 2024/2025
“Through cycling, help people become healthier, happier, and connected to community and the environment”
At the heart of our club is our members’ willingness to volunteer their time to assist others. Established in 2008, our club, known as “Peloton Charity Shield”, saw local riders unite to contribute donations for charitable causes. In 2010, we evolved into the Northern Beaches Cycling Club, and came to embrace a range of
cycling activities, including road cycling, mountain biking, gravel riding, cyclocross and electric biking.
Our vibrant logo symbolises the diversity of cycling experiences our members enjoy, emphasising inclusiveness to ensure that riders, of all abilities, feel they are valued and belong.
Cycling Facilities now stand as integral foundations of our club, a testament to the tireless efforts of our volunteers. The Splendid Park Cycle Track, The Yaberoo-Budjara Heritage Trail upgrade, and the Yellagonga Mountain Bike Park are a direct result of our advocacy and perseverance. Perth’s north has become a premier destination for safe and accessible cycling facilities.
In proud affiliation with the; Quinns Rocks Sports Club, Quinns Rocks Bowls Club, Quinns Rocks RSL, Quinns Rocks Darts and Mindarie Sea Sports Club, our influence extends beyond the cycling track. We have contributed to health and road safety messages being delivered to these clubs and contributed to upgrades of the Quinns Rocks Sports Club facility.
Over the past decade, our primary focus has been advocating for safe and accessible facilities. With these facilities now established, or in the construction phase, we are poised to shift our attention back to our core – our people and community. With groundwork laid and facilities secured, we are eager to make Perth’s outer northern suburbs & towns an accessible destination for cycling. The forthcoming National Road Titles present a unique opportunity for us to attract cyclists from across the nation, by hosting a nationally televised support
As of January 2024, NBCC has 726 members. This is comprised of 3 member pathways; 572 Social, 30 WestCycle and 124 AusCycle members. We have affiliation with the Quinns Rocks Sports Club with over 2,000 members.
