Kapiti Cycling Club Inc

The centre of the cycling community on the Kapiti Coast

Join us with a Club or Club plus race Licence Membership

The Kapiti Cycling Club aims to be the centre of the cycling community on the Kapiti Coast.  We are dedicated to providing safe cycling opportunities to all age groups and skill levels, not just racing.

We recognise that not everyone wants to take part in events at a regional or national level (thereby requiring both club and a race licence from Cycling NZ), so we have decided to take the initiative and reinstate a Club Only membership option and manage it ourselves.

Below are what we believe are some of the key benefits of Club and Club plus race licence memberships in our club. The choice is now yours as to what type of membership suits your needs best! 

Benefits of a KCC Club Membership include: 

  • 10% discount off services from Searletech Mobile Bike Services  Show your membership card to Mike, to redeem your discount on all services.
  • 10% discount off all Tineli products, year round  Once you join as a member, you'll receive a code to enter in the Tineli website, entitling you to 10% off all products (excluding Club kit, which is already at the lowest price available!).
  • Participate in safely organised KCC club events. We have up to date traffic management on every course and we have trained and qualified personnel running the events.
  • FREE racing on Tuesday nights ($10 for non-members)
