AusCycling knows our sport thrives due to the efforts of our many volunteers. Volunteering brings people together; it builds communities and creates a better society for everyone.

A volunteer is anyone who undertakes a role at a club, at events or within the community that is unpaid or is only paid for expenses incurred.

To celebrate the commitment and impact of volunteers, we are launching a National Volunteer Recognition Program. Additionally, thanks to the support of our partners, effective immediately, non-riding memberships will be free of charge* for volunteers.

                    * Whilst the AusCycling fee has been removed, Club fees will remain the jurisdiction of individual Clubs therefore any contribution will go directly to Clubs.


Our clubs, communities and members rely on the outstanding attributes that our volunteers bring to the sport. These include reliability, excellent interpersonal skills, the ability to learn quickly, decision-making and problem-solving.

If you know of an AusCycling member who is a volunteer and possesses these or other great qualities, someone with a history of commitment or somebody who is a great local fixture, why not put them forward for this special recognition?

Please refer to the information below to nominate a person who encompasses all the attributes of a great volunteer within the AusCycling community. The portal is now open and accepting nominations.


Voting Information


  • Volunteers will be acknowledged by AusCycling on a dedicated page on our website and at key moments throughout the year, such as during National Volunteer Week.
  • Awards will be presented across all states/territories and disciplines based on the nominations received.
  • The winners will be announced in May 2023 at the Annual General Meeting.

After receipt of nominations and consultation, AusCycling has amended some of the 2022 timelines and added flexibility to the final awarded categories to ensure we can best recognise our incredible volunteer community.

Please note: The new AusCycling National Volunteer Recognition Program runs separately to the existing Meritorious and Service awards.
