All Bicycle NSW Memberships are subject to the following terms and conditions. By purchasing a Bicycle NSW Membership, you agree to these terms and conditions.

Terms of Membership

Upon becoming a member of Bicycle NSW, you agree to be bound by Rules of Bicycle New South Wales Incorporated which you can view here.

The Bicycle NSW membership year commences on July 1 and concludes on June 30 the following year. Any membership purchased after July 1 will be charged a pro rata fee, commencing on the date of purchase and concluding on June 30 the following year.

There are no refunds to any membership, except as required by law. Membership is not transferrable. Subject to the Rules of Incorporation, Bicycle NSW reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time without notice.

 

Membership Categories

Bicycle NSW offers three different membership categories.

  • Individual memberships: can only be purchased by people who are 16 years of age or older on the date or purchase
  • Household memberships: include up to 2 adults and 6 children where an adult is defined as any person who is 18 years or older at any time during the period of membership. All members of a household policy must reside at the same address for at least 50% of the time.
  • Concession memberships: for those who are under 25 years of age or over 65 years of age at the date of purchase.

 

Membership Renewals

Bicycle NSW memberships renew on June 1 for the following membership year, beginning on July 1. This is done to ensure that all Bicycle NSW memberships are renewed prior to July 1 and that members are covered by insurance 365 days a year.

Bicycle NSW will provide notice of the relevant membership fee and all impending charges made to the Member for the forthcoming year, by May 1 (one month prior to the renewal taking place).

Automatic renewal

All Bicycle NSW members have the option of whether their subscription automatically renews into the forthcoming membership year. Upon signing up, new members are able to select ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to determine if their membership automatically renews. Current members are contacted in advance of the renewal date, providing them an option to turn on/off automatic renew before their membership renews for the forthcoming year.

Members can alter their automatic renewal preference by notifying the Bicycle NSW Membership team at (02) 9704 0800 or via email at info@bicyclensw.org.au. Notice via email must be given 5 business days prior to renewal for the forthcoming membership year.

Where Members have agreed to have their membership automatically renewed, they authorise Bicycle NSW to debit their nominated credit/debit card for the applicable membership fee for the forthcoming membership year. The automatic renewal option is only available for payments made by credit/debit cards.

 

Payment

Bicycle NSW members are able to make a membership payment through a personal credit/debit account, or through a cheque

  • It is the Member’s responsibility to ensure that their provided account details are current and correct, and that they have sufficient clear funds available in the nominated account on the scheduled renewal date.
  • If a payment fails to process on the scheduled date, further attempts are made to clear all funds. Members are notified to their designated email address, when a payment fails.
  • Where a Member believes a withdrawal has been processed incorrectly, they can contact the Bicycle NSW Membership team on (02) 9704 0800 or via email at info@bicyclensw.org.au to request a refund.
  • Refunds to an account can take up to 10 business days to fully process.
