Welcome to the Port Macquarie Cycle Club

PMCC – This is how we roll

We are Port Macquarie Cycle Club. We are young, we are old; we are fast, we are not so fast; we race, we watch and we chip in. Whatever we do we give it our all, and we do it because we love it. This is how we roll – join us.

The Tour of Southland in Invercargil NZ is celebrating 60 years. The 2016 race will be run from 30/10/2016 to 05/11/2016.

It is a tough hard race of big hills, bad weather and strong winds. Competing this year will be a team of riders hailing from the warm and sunny North Coast of NSW (with the exception of one). The field for the 2016 race has a strong international flavour.

The organiser of the team and director Sportiff will be Kurt Polock. Peter Hennessy (Debs Dad) a legendary sportsman in his right will be assisting.

There will be coverage of the tour streamed online. Details at a later date.

Open Day Photos & How to Join Us

The Open was well attended and we had an army of kids trying out the club bikes and scooting around the cones while the older kids worked on their cornering lines on the Crit track. Others just came along to check it out and have a chat which was great.

With an ever growing cohort of junior riders 2017 promises some keen competition which kicks off with the Tuesday night criterium season on 8 November. This season we will be running a Junior Skills Competition from 5.30 to 6 pm and this group will then race after the first senior event. New members can sign up and ride from now for the 2017 season. (membership.cycling.org.au/Packages/racing)

For those who want to be a part of this great club but are not so keen on racing then a Ride or Ride Plus membership is a great option with insurance and other benefits. Day licences are available if you decide to give it a go later in the season or you can upgrade your membership at any time. (membership.cycling.org.au/)

International Rider Lachlan Morton - Lachy had an outstanding season in 2016 winning the Tour of Utah in spectacular fashion as well as the Tour of Gila. His riding saw him earn a contract with Dimension Data to ride in the World Tour in 2017.

Sports Person - Deborah Hennessey - Deb raced across the country in the newly formed women's racing team Hogs Breath Cafe Tinelli. Deborah did particularly well in the Grafton to Inverell but her best result for the year was a bronze medal in UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.

Club Person Trevor Dickson joined the PMCC committee in 2016 and is responsible for a large part of what is required to keep a club like PMCC on the up and up. In particular he was pivotal in the resurfacing of the criterium track by Boral Asphalt and has established a vibrant Recreational Ride series for those members who prefer not to race but like to be part of our exciting club.

The DNF Award is a PMCC tradition of some standing. David O'Brien made a grab for this trophy early in the season but Brandon Conway amassed enough flat tyres and dropped chains to secure the prize despite a late rush by Wade Buchan.

Most Improved Riders
Senior Simon Bank
Junior Oscar Jakeman

Encouragement Awards
Senior Wade Buchan & David O'Brien
Junior Cameron Grigg, Lachlan MacDonald, Charlie Hamerlok.

Chief Commissaire Murray Sallaway was recognised for his work as Commissaire across the season and in particular during the Northern Division Championships. Murray was also responsible for the junior training rides which have contributed to the improvements seen in many of our younger riders.

Outstanding Volunteer Wayne Castle was recognised for his tireless work on the clubhouse over this year and previous years.

Traffic Controllers of 2016 were recognised with a club shirt. They were: Phil Hawes. Mark Magennis. Gary Alexander. Louise Grigg, Brian Johnson. Ryan Barker. Chris Sandbrook. Georgina Pender.

CSU Grant - A grant from Charles Sturt University was used to provide club kit bags and jackets to our three junior riders who ride away regularly. These were Brandon Conway, William Pender and Jonah Hamer.
