Club History

Ipswich Cycling Club traces its origins back to 1892, when on the 6th of August the club was inaugurated following an attempt at the bicycle road record from the Brisbane Post Office to the Ipswich Post Office. The 42km distance was covered in an impressive (for the day) 1 hour and 50 minutes, with the two riders impeded by wet conditions, closed gates, and some pretty average "roads". It is said that they "both rode Eclipse clincher pneumatics, which gave every satisfaction". 

 

The club has seen many changes over the years. Today we have over 100 racing, recreational and social members. ICC Members can be seen at a range of road racing events, as well as on the velodrome, mountain biking or on the cyclocross circuit.

 

 

We also have within our membership two world champions; Michael Hepburn and Craig Taylor.
