cycling NSW emails

Hi,

i dont know if anyone has any sway or contacts, but..

cycling NSW sends me each email relating to my membership 3 to 4 times. I have contacted them multiple times about it via email with zero responses from them.

About to just give up and ditch membership.

Anyone ride outside club ride times.

Hi,

Can't ride the sat and Sunday morning club rides. Or the early weekday ones.

So does any one have rides outside these? Preferably slow ones for now.

Yeah, barrie wouldnt confirm the track bike question (one lot of course info said velodrome riding required) and gave complete different form to one on cycling nsw site.

Cool bananas. Also there is possible implications from changing from at-fault to no-fault CTP. Currently if cyclist hit by car, with car in the wrong, the driver's insurance will rightly cover it.
