Joining WMCC

Welcome and thanks so much for considering joining the Wellington Masters Cycling Club (WMCC). The WMCC has a long history of involvement in Cycling in the Wellington region. With its early start as a club that primarily focused on Time Trialling to a thriving club today that now provides Serious Fun On Your Bike' that provides you the 'Best Race Programme in the Region for masters and other cyclists of all abilities and provides competition at a Masters level that works for you in a friendly, safe and relaxed environment. As a club, we place a lot of emphasis on our values of: Fun, Safe, Social, Affordable, Friendly, Healthy, Competitive, Inclusive and Rewarding. 

WMCC is affiliated to Cycling NZ and WMCC members don't need a Cycling NZ licence to ride in WMCC club events as the club has its own public liability insurance policy that covers all riders in our events. If you intend to ride in the Wellington Centre Champs or other Club and National events you will need an Adult licence that links you to WMCC. You can apply for a license through the Cycling NZ website: Click Here

WMCC’s backbone is also its members commitment to support the club by undertaking volunteer duties. Without our members volunteering we are unable to run the great events you’re obviously so keen to participate in. Volunteers ensure we can provide safe racing and that the club can deliver on its values and goals, so please consider this when you join this great club.

WMCC Membership

  • Club Membership year runs from 1 August 2022 to 31 July 2023.
  • Membership is only open to Masters age riders (men 35+ and women 30+ as at 31 December 2022)
  • Ordinary membership costs $85 and entitles you to free entry to all club races (less two key events) and financial support at Age Group Club Road Nationals[1].

  • Club membership will be finalised once members have selected a volunteer duty through Dutyman.

WMCC Volunteering

  • The club uses an online system called Dutyman for managing volunteering duties. Members are provided with a log-on so they can select events where they wish to volunteer.
  • Members are required to sign up for two volunteer duties after receiving your Dutyman link, or for current members, immediately after renewing your membership. Any member who does not sign up to two volunteer duties will be allocated duties by the Membership Coordinator and it will be your responsibility to swap duties if the date does not suit you.
  • All members are required to complete two volunteer duties during the membership year. This rule applies regardless of what point during the year they join the club
  • Members can swap a volunteer duty at any stage during the year using the Dutyman system.
