New club kit

Our awesome new Cuore club kit is available to order through the Cuore Teamshop, until Midnight on 2 June.

Link at the bottom.

Password: Neo$2020

We will open the Cuore Teamshop 2-3 times a year, for two week periods, to enable bulk orders. You will pay through the Cuore Teamshop and they will despatch the kit to your door, within 4-6 weeks of the shop closing.

In between those times, you will be able to order Neo kit from our online shop here. Shortly we will also be adding supporter caps, hoodies, polo shirts and more.

We’re known for our socks!

Sizing

Cuore offer Junior, Men’s and Women’s sizing (XXS – 4XL). Cuore also allow you to individually customise the arm length and body length of your jerseys, and leg length for knicks, at a cost of $15 per alteration.

Note: all Neo short sleeve jerseys automatically come with arms +4cm longer than standard, at no additional cost. It looks cooler.

Men’s & Women’s – noting some juniors may get a better fit in adult sizing
Gloves
Socks

Size guides are also available in the Cuore Teamshop.

Junior sizing

Junior sizing is based on overall height, ranging from 116cm – 164cm.

Some Juniors may find that they get a better fit in Adult sizing (at adult pricing). Check out the Adult sizes guides.

Junior 2-in-1 skinsuit sizing

Juniors, unless you’ve tried on a 2-in-1 skinsuit and are happy with its fit, we do not recommend you order one. Instead, stick with a traditional bib-knicks / jersey combo.

Many of the juniors who have tried one found the leg fitting too loose, in junior sizing. We are working with Cuore on resizing the junior 2-in-1s.

Adult sizing should be fine.

Gilet (Vest), Arm, Leg & Knee warmer sizing

Gilet and arm warmers, order the same size as your jersey.

Knee and leg warmers, order the same size as your jersey.

Wrong sizes?

Due to the impact of COVID-19, not everyone has had a chance to try things on. Consequently there’s a chance you may get your kit and realise it is not an optimal fit.

Don’t worry. Keep the tags on it and bring it in its original bag to training / racing and we’ll do our best to arrange a swap.

Christmas Party 2019

Our club Christmas Party on 15 December was a fabulous afternoon of serious and not-so-serious racing. The smoke cleared (a little) and we wrapped up a successful year, in style.

We awarded our winners of the Term Cups, held our Xmas raffle, enjoyed a huge feast (thanks Julia and co) and raised $350 towards new equipment.

Always a highlight of year, we even had Santa in attendance doing a hot lap on his trusty cargo bike!

Thanks everyone for your support this year.

Have a great break with your families and we’ll be back at Lidcombe for a Sunday Funday on 12 January, sign on from 2.00pm.

Why Neo?

After 5 successful years as Junior Cyclist, we have decided to rebrand. We hope you like it!

Despite our longstanding, and continued focus on ‘junior development’ we realise that our Junior Cyclist brand has become too restrictive, when in fact our oldest ‘juniors’ will be adults shortly!

As such, we have evolved our club branding to ensure it remains relevant to our members, especially as they grow. Plus we also have an increasing number of adult members, mainly parents.

Neo (Greek, for new or young), embodies both our long-standing commitment to junior development, and our ‘new’ approach to how a cycling club can operate. Additionally, in pro-cycling speak, young, first-year professionals are called ‘neo-pros’.

Vision

To be one of Australia‚Äôs leading cycling clubs, with a sustained focus on junior development, by making cycling inclusive and accessible to all. Cycling is a lifelong gift, and we support our members to ride with confidence, socially or competitively, regardless of their age or grade. 

A club to grow with

Many of you will have seen more adults racing over the past year, as we’ve encouraged parents to start competing.

We’ve done this for a number of reasons.

Firstly, we want to ensure that our oldest juniors have quality racing experiences each week, by mixing it with adults (even against over-the-hill ones..).

Secondly, although kids may not want to see their parents in lycra (!), we want our juniors to see that cycling is a lifelong gift that they can hopefully keep enjoying, in the club, competitively or socially, well into adulthood.

2020 NSW Junior Metro Track Champs

We had 12 juniors compete in the NSW Junior Metropolitan Championships at Lidcombe on Saturday 23 November 2019, with some fantastic results by our junior track stars on our home track.

With good representation from clubs across Sydney, racing was closely contested and lead to some thrilling finishes.

Riders competed in an Individual Time Trial, a Scratch Race and a series of Derby races. We concluded the day with five podium finishes, in the overall results, and a number of PBs.

Despite being contested so early in the track racing season, Metros provide a great racing opportunity for riders looking to compete in the NSW Junior Track Championships in Dubbo, on February 8 2020.

Well done everyone!
