“Our mission is to bring you the best content in the world that showcases the beauty of cycling in all its glory. We want to inspire people to love the sport as much as we do, and ultimately pull you away from the computer to get out for a ride.
 
Advertising revenues are eroding fast due to the Facebook and Google duopoly. Despite this, we’ve always stayed true to our readers, without ever selling out to make a quick dollar. We need your support to help build a stronger, more sustainable CyclingTips so that we don’t suffer the same fate as other media we’re seeing fall right before our eyes.
 
Our focus and promise is bringing you the very best and most trustworthy cycling content possible. Your contributions allow us to retain our editorial independence, our authenticity and to keep working for you, our readers. This means honest and helpful reviews, continuing our women’s cycling coverage, offering unique perspectives, and sometimes asking the tough questions and telling the inconvenient truths.”

It’s nice to feel part of something bigger, and to be acknowledged as contributing to something that so many people enjoy. I get a little kick whenever I read that an article was ‘brought to you by our members’.

I like to race but even when I’m not I’ll go down to support my friends and catch up with everyone because cycling is such a social sport. VeloClub reflects this social atmosphere only it’s online! When I can’t be on the bike during work hours or at night I try to get my cycling fix elsewhere and VeloClub helps satisfy these cravings.

I’ve been a long time user of CyclingTips and more recently the Emporium. Whilst my primary interest in joining the VeloClub was to ensure that CT can continue to create quality content, you won’t hear me complain about the multiple additional benefits of the membership.

Cycling Tips was the website I found when I returned to the sport and taught me about cycling, racing and its culture. It’s satisfying to know my membership contributes to the longevity of the site and its content, and supports the development of the sport through its coverage of women’s cycling. Through my VeloClub membership, it’s been great to expand my cycling network and get involved in a new community that is evolving from online and into real world riding.

FAQ

WHAT IS VELOCLUB?

VeloClub is a member-driven community of like-minded enthusiasts whose contributions help build a better, more sustainable CyclingTips, delivering more to you, our readers.

As a VeloClub member you aren’t just helping build a stronger CyclingTips, you’re also funding the creation of extra amazing content for the entire CyclingTips readership to enjoy.

WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT CYCLINGTIPS WHEN OTHER PUBLICATIONS NEED MY SUPPORT TOO?

It’s a valid question. But we like to think CyclingTips is different and we take enormous pride in what we do. It’s a labour of love.

We say “no” to more advertisers than we say “yes” to. We have turned down countless commercial opportunities when an advertiser has asked us to do things that don’t align with our moral values or that don’t put you, the reader, first.

Paid reviews, questionable charities, PR stunts – these are all things we need to pass on, even though they could pay the salaries of 10 people. We’re often asked to slip things by you in our editorial — things that don’t tell the truth or the full story — but we won’t. We don’t litter our pages with countless ads, blow out deals, affiliate links, pop-ups, etc. We pass up on all of these money making techniques to make this place a better experience for you.

Your support allows us to keep producing the sort of content you’ve come to expect from CyclingTips, all while helping us to create additional features. Your support allows us to maintain our editorial independence and ensure we’re always focused on working for you, our readers.

WHAT IF I'M NOT BASED IN AUSTRALIA?

CyclingTips is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia but all of the benefits included in VeloClub can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
