Cycling Victoria - History

Background

The Victorian Amateur Cyclists' Union (VACU) was formed in May 1917 to promote the interests of amateur cyclists in Victoria.

The name of the organisation was changed to the Victorian Cycling Federation (VCF) in 1986.

In 1893 the League of Victorian Wheelman (LVW) was formed to promote the interests of professional cyclists.

Three years later in 1896 the LVW become the controlling body for professional cycling in Victoria.

In 1992, an amalgamation of the two bodies was created to jointly control and promotes the sport of competitive cycling.

In the late 1990s, Victorian Cycling Incorporated began trading as CycleSport Victoria, until 2011, when the name Cycling Victoria was adopted.

Cycling History Audit

Cycling in Victoria has a rich and exciting past and Cycling Victoria (CV) is committed to the preservation and honouring of this rich history.

In partnership with the Victorian branch of the Australian Society for Sports History and the Sport History Unit at Victoria University, CV are conducting an audit of cycling-related items that members of the public may currently have in their possession.
 
We are not specifically requesting donations of this material, but rather we are keen to create the opportunity for the cycling fraternity to accurately list and record items that may contain information that will assist in the compilation of an historical log and/or database for use on the CV website and for other purposes.
