Darling Downs Cycling Club is a membership based club that welcomes cyclists of all abilities and ages, as well as non-cyclists interested in being a part of the sport.

Transferring to Darling Downs Cycling Club
If you are currently a member of another cycling club, or have been a member of another cycling club within the last 2 years, and would like to join Darling Downs Cycling Club the process is simple.
If you’re a current Member of another club you will need to fill out a transfer form and have it signed off by your previous club. You can download the form here. Then send it to our Club email address and we’ll take care of the rest. You need to do this before you renew online.
If it’s getting close to the end of the year you might like to renew by using a manual form after you transfer to ensure that your insurance doesn’t lapse on 31 December.
Once both forms are completed they can be forwarded, together with your membership payment, to the Cycling Australia membership team.
Please note that there is a $50.00 fee from Cycling Australia applicable to transfers made anywhere from 01 January to 30 September. However, this fee is not applicable if you are lodging this form at the time of renewing your membership between 01 October and 31 December.
