Yes, you can. In fact, over 50% of our members are from other countries.
Yes, you are welcome to join the induction ride and join us for a complimentary breakfast after your first induction ride before you have paid your membership. However, you must pay the membership fees if you want to continue to ride with us.
You can come and try a couple (one or two) of our rides before you pay to join the club. However, once you have decided that you enjoy riding with us, and want to continue to ride, we ask that you pay the membership fee. You should also note that you will not be eligible for any of the club benefits (with the exception of the club breakfast after your first induction ride), and you will not be covered by ANZA’s public liability insurance (where applicable) until you are a paid-up member.
The induction ride is held on the first Saturday of every month. The meeting point is outside the Coffee Bean and Tea Lead at the corner of Cuscaden Rd and Orchard Road. We meet at 5.30am for the pre-ride briefing. Please sign up by posting in the comments section of the Facebook post that will come out a few days before the ride. Note that this is not an introduction to cycling ride, but an introduction to the club. We’ll take you through all the club rules, calls and how we roll in order that everybody can have a safer ride. We’ll also advise you which rides might suit you. More details can be found in the Facebook page.
Yes, we ask that all new riders join the ride. It is not an introduction to cycling, but an introduction to the club. We’ll take you through all the club rules, calls and how we roll in order that everybody can have a safer ride. We’ll also advise you which rides might suit you.
All new riders must join the induction ride before they ride regularly with us. However, we understand that sometimes people are away for the induction ride and have to miss it. If you do join a regular ride before joining the induction be sure to have read our road rules on the website (https://newt.anza.org.sg/sports/cycling/rules-calls-and-etiquette/) and the description of how we roll. Lastly, make sure you introduce yourself to the group and explain that you are a new rider with the club. This point will allow others around you to help explain how we roll, make them more accepting of any mistakes and make for a safer ride for everybody.
Yes, you can only join or renew your ANZA Cycling membership if you are a member of the ANZA Organisation. This is because ANZA provides the Cycling Club with a number of benefits, most notably public liability insurance cover, payment services and access to a broader range of sponsors. You must also keep your ANZA membership current to maintain your ANZA Cycling membership.
No, the only way to process your membership payment is through the ANZA Cycling web page
Your membership is valid until the end of the 12th month from the date you joined.
The on-line kit shop opens roughly once every few months for a couple of weeks. It is open to members only. The kit will be delivered about 5 weeks after the shop closes. Around the beginning of the second quarter every year there is a new kit. Kit will be available at the kit launch for direct purchase (subject to availability, first come, first served).
No, we don’t expect members to own multiple sets. However, we do ask that members wear this year’s kit on Saturday rides and especially on the first Saturday of the month. On other days, you can still wear your kit, if it is available, or wear a previous year’s kit if you have one. You can also feel free to show off the latest cycle fashion that you have purchased elsewhere.
Firstly, it is a way of giving our sponsors visibility and repay their support. This is important as their sponsorship keeps the membership fees low and provides the benefits like club social evenings, club breakfast, subsidised trips, etc. Secondly, it allows everybody to identify you as a member of the club, know that you are riding with them, help you out if you get into difficulty, etc.
ANZA Cycling memberships expire at the end of the same month you joined in a given year, ANZA memberships expire exactly 12 months after you joined. Unfortunately, we cannot make them the same at this time. Larger disparities may be because you originally joined ANZA for a different reason and joined ANZA Cycling later.
I am about renew my ANZA Membership, but I have not yet received the discount code to renew my ANZA Cycling membership at the same time. Where can I get it from?
Discount codes are sent to the registered email address of eligible renewing members 10-20 days before their membership is due to expire. Please wait for this email to arrive and check your spam/junk inboxes for it. This may mean that you need to renew the memberships at different times because of the differing expiry dates. Make sure you update us if your email address changes.
If you fail to renew in the first 20 days or so of being sent the code it is likely that the code has been changed. If this is the case, you will have been sent reminders. Make sure you use the discount code in the last reminder email you were sent. Check your spam/junk inbox. If you allow your membership to lapse for too long (a number of months) you will need to re-join as a new member.
Our primary method of communication about day to day events is via Facebook. All members are encouraged to join the ANZA Cycling Facebook page. If you do not have a Facebook account try to use one of a family member, or set one up and just use it to access our page. If you set one up in a different name please send us a message to let us know that your pseudonym.
You cannot join club events or trips until you have become a current financial member of ANZA Cycling and the main ANZA Organisation.
No, we cannot. However, there are some places in Singapore where you can rent one. Search on our Facebook page for current recommendations.
Road bikes are appropriate for our road rides. Mountain bikes should only be used when riding with the Mountain bike section of our club. TT/Tri bikes can be ridden in the pace line, but we ask that riders do not use the aero bars in the pace line and keep their hands near/on the brake levers. TT/tri bikes may ride more than 10m behind groups on their aero bars. The triathlon section will also post rides on their Facebook page for TT/tri riders to go out in groups. However, these will not be paceline rides. Hybrid/city bikes are not appropriate for club rides as the speeds are too high.
No, most of our average ride speeds are above 28km/h. Rental city bikes are not appropriate for these speeds
