About the Club

UQCC is a bicycle racing club based at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. Founded in 1983, our club has a reputation as one of Australia’s leading clubs and has produced a number of National, Commonwealth and Olympic Champions.

Road cycling is the club’s major focus. UQCC hosts the annual Charles Coin Memorial & Mardi Bartlett Classic, and holds criteriums and various other races and time trials throughout the year.

If you’ve always loved watching the Madison or velodrome events where the action unfolds under your nose, then Track cycling may be for you! The Club has strong representation in the Individual and Team Pursuits, Scratch, Match Sprint and the 1 km Time Trial.

Most of all, we love riding. We hope to see you out there! Don’t be put off by a bunch of guys and gals in lycra — come along and introduce yourself and experience the joys of cycling!

UQCC Students

While the Club boasts a large contingent of alumni and friends, UQCC remains at its core a student cycling club affiliated with the University. If you’re interested in finding out more about UQCC and joining a vibrant club for social rides, training, racing and more, you can find our student reps at O-Week Market Day each semester. Be sure to join the UQCC Students Facebook group, and for more information on student-specific events and rides, get in touch with the Club’s student representative Elliott Williams.
