Overview

The purpose of this page is to provide information about the 2023/2024 Central Coast Cycling Club Criterium season.

The Central Coast Cycling Club is offering a season pass to all participants for the 2023/2024 Summer Criterium season. You will still need to enter each race once you have purchased the season pass. All of the details are on the EntryBoss page – https://entryboss.cc/races/17969

The Central Coast Cycling Club Criterium Season Pass cost is $100.

We want to encourage criterium season participants to sign on in advance to ensure adequate time to configure the electronic timing and we have enough people to help cover helper shifts.

The season includes some new features and events intended to increase participation and make Central Coast Cycling activities at the Ourimbah campus more enjoyable, inclusive and safer for all.

This year the club has increased sponsorship and prize money and will look to hold different events, such as handicaps, a time trial, a women’s only race and the Central Coast Criterium Championships.

The club will also introduce Electronic Timing for some events.

The proposed new season will be split into 3 event categories per month and a minimum of 1 day per month to be left free to allow rescheduling of races due to weather or other factors.
