ANUCC Monday Night Criterium Sessions

Cycling Australia Licenses
October means that it is time to renew all Cycling Australia licences, with current membership due to expire in December. If you are thinking about racing, you will need a Cycling Australia racing membership. If you have a racing membership through ANUCC then you are entitled to a discount on the ANUCC membership.

More details about Cycling Australia Licence can be found here.

Perceptions in Pain Management Survey
Students at UC are conducting a research project about the use of pain medications and sport/exercise. The goal is to better understand what influences related to pain management impact on participation in physical activity; these influences could include access to health experts and services, past experiences of injury (and recovery), perceptions of medications efficacy, financial/time burdens, and level of obligation to other participants, team members or sponsors. Summary results will be publically available, free of charge, in early 2016.

The 10-15min survey is voluntary, anonymous and completely confidential and is open from now until midnight on Monday 30 November 2015. Anyone completing the survey by midnight on Monday 30 November can enter a draw for one of five $50 gift vouchers. 

The link for the survey can be found here.
