Member of Union Cycliste Internationale

The St Kilda Cycling Club, commonly referred to as SKCC, is an Australian cycling club based in inner and south-east Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The club is part of the international cycling union,[1] the sport's peak body.

The cycling club was established in 1999 and its name originates from the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda, Victoria although its membership base extends beyond the suburban boundaries. The club is a not for profit association formed under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981.[2]

The club is the largest in Australia and has the largest female membership of any Australian cycling club. Former Olympian and current head of the OCC Oceanian Cycling Confederation and current UCI Vice President Tracey Gaudry is the Number One ticket holder.

History[edit]

SKCC was formed in 1999 when a group of local riders saw the need for a local club to service the growing number of cyclist in inner Melbourne.

Criterium racing[edit]

The criterium racing season commences in October each year and runs through to April the following year. A criterium, or crit, is a bike race held on a short course (usually less than 5 km), often run on closed-off city center streets.

The current SKCC club criterium circuit is located in White St, Port Melbourne. Racing is graded from the premier women's and men's events A grade events through to E grade entry level races. Due to the Fisherman's Bend rezoning the club is looking for a new circuit.

Road racing[edit]

The road racing seasons commences in April each year and extends through to October.

The road racing calendar consists of handicap and graded racing events run each weekend on closed roads outside the Melbourne metropolitan areas. SKCC is part of a group of seven cycling clubs who work together to organise the winter road racing season. This group of clubs is referred to as the Northern Combine.[3]

Club jerseys[edit]

The current SKCC club jersey was designed by Robbie Moore from Bzak Cycle Clothing Design. The design was one of three voted on by SKCC members and was released in October 2016.
