It's always rewarding when the club gets to work in some of our core business. Thanks to a Queensland Sport and Recreation "Get Clubs Going" grant, we're able to provide loan equipment for riders to get into track cycling. We've two new small track bikes and a bunch of new spares to get our old bikes back in service. We're especially happy with the narrow bars for our smallest riders. Special thanks also to Hillbrick Bicycles, Kotavelo and Kirrawee Cycles for helping us out with discounts and shipping. Thanks to all the committed members who helped get the grant application together and who continue to volunteer to allow us to continue our unique track program. It's fantastic to be able to provide an entry to track cycling without the need to purchase a bike. Details of our track program are here: http://balmoralcyclingclub.com.au/track-training-racing/ ...

The Balmoral Cycling Club Management Committee has been following the AusCycling initiative over the last year and we've considered the proposal’s benefits and risks, along with engaging with many stakeholders across cycling. At our regular monthly meeting on Wednesday night (6 Nov), a vote was unanimously passed to support the initiative. Balmoral Cycling Club will vote to support AusCycling at the Cycling Queensland SGM on 16 Nov. The committee felt that the proposal would benefit both our club and cycling in general. The initiative is not without risk, and we won't expect immediate benefits, but we are convinced that this is the right path for Balmoral, and for all forms of cycling in Queensland and Australia. Balmoral looks forward to contributing to the success of AusCycling. ... See more
Balmoral has had a long term commitment to supporting junior development and the transition to Elite and team based racing. At an Elite level, our primary investment has been through the highly successful Balmoral Elite Team - our 2020 team was announced yesterday. An area where we’ve been keen to improve though, is that of Women’s racing. A highlight of the 2019 season has been the development & performance of both SCODY Racing pb Galibier Partners and The Women's Racing Project. Balmoral members Hayley Jones & Alex Quirk have played instrumental roles with these teams respectively, which has been fantastic to see. It’s therefore with great pleasure to announce that Balmoral will be supporting both teams in 2020 through the provision of start-up funding. Both teams will retain full autonomy in terms of rider selection and team management - we’re just pleased to help them on their way in 2020 and contribute to women’s cycling. On behalf of the Balmoral Cycling Club, congratulations, and we look forward to the 2020 season! Andy Moore, President ... See more

A reminder to complete the Brisbane City Council survey on the concept plan for Murarrie Recreation Reserve! Other sports are understandingly advocating for additional facilities. Whilst Balmoral CC will support any other safe community usage, we think wheeled sports needs to remain the primary purpose of Murarrie Rec ground. With only one other cycle circuit in Brisbane, riders we need to clearly communicate the importance of being able to safely train and race at Muzz. Have your say now: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/4896839/DSRPCP-MurarrieRR We ask that you only complete the survey once. ... See more
