School Sport Victoria has partnered with AusCycling to provide an fun and inclusive 'schools-based' cycling competition for mountain bike and road cycling. The focus is on 'having a go', riding your bike and keeping active whilst representing your school.
The AusCycling Schools Mountain Bike Series runs from June until October each year, with five rounds at different locations across Victoria. Cross country (XC) is the type of mountain bike racing on offer with both a novice and race category in each age group from under 11 (sometimes under 9) through to under 19 available for participants. The course and trails allow for maximum fun with a bit of challenge! For more information on the Schools MTB series, click here.
The AusCycling School Road Series (known as VICS) runs from October to March the following year, with up to eight rounds at metropolitan and regional locations across Victoria. Different rounds will feature a different type of race such as criterium (bunch race on a closed circuit of approx. 1 to 2km), road race (bunch race of a set distance based on age category), individual time trial or team time trial (timed distance). There is both a novice and race category in each age group from under 11 through to under 19s available for participants. More information on the Schools Road series will be available in August.
By participating in these schools-based series, riders accumulate points for their school and as an individual competitor. Series aggregate winners are announced at the final round of the MTB Series in October and Road Series in March.
AusCycling also offers 'Ride Nation Schools', a learn-to-ride bike education available to all schools Australia-wide. It's a fun and interactive learning opportunity that teaches primary school aged children to develop their bike riding skills and confidence. For more on Ride Nation Schools, click here.
