We display the Goldstar’s Google Calendar including State and other important events. This is a public calendar, so, if you use Google Calendar, you can import this Calendar into your Calendar and always stay updated on both your PC and smart phone. Or, you can view it HERE.
Mostly, Races are run as Restricted Opens with entry open to anyone with a CA licence.
When a full Open event is being conducted within a road distance of 100km, racing will be down-graded to Club-Combine open to only members of 3 nominated Clubs and bona-fide visitors. This is reflected in the Calendar above.
Bad weather may also delay or prevent starts.
- Adult = $15 ($10 race entry + $5 road surcharge)
Junior Race = $5 (up to U15)
Graded Juniors = $10 (eligible graded juniors competing D to A Grade up to U17)($5 race entry + $5 road surcharge)
- Family Flat Rate = $30 (two or more members from the same immediate family)
NOTE: Goldstars events conducted on public road courses attract a $5.00 surcharge in addition to race entry fee to cover the additional costs incurred. This surcharge serves to offset the increasing and additional costs of conducting racing on public roads for which the Goldstars employ professional traffic controllers and first aid officer. Surplus funds collected from the surcharge are committed directly to the Goldstars Junior development program to assist with various costs including providing bikes to and and assisting with travel costs to major events for Goldstars junior members.

Race events on the Gold Coast hosted by the Goldstars and CATS are run under sanction from Cycling Australia (CA) and its State counterpart and, as such, enjoy the Insurance coverage afforded by CA by virtue of the licensing fees we all pay. Cover includes both personal accident and Public Indemnity for all participants and officials. This insurance also covers members during legitimate training activities either organised by the Club or individually if the member maintains a training diary.
Organised racing or participation events not sanctioned by CA or its State counterpart are excluded from this insurance cover, and, therefore, all insurance cover afforded by membership of this Club may be null and void. Members undertake these activities at their own risk and should satisfy themselves as to the insurances held by the organiser of such events.
Neither the Goldstars Cycling Club, nor any other CA affiliated cycling club, is involved in, or responsible for, the organised event held at Luke Harrop Circuit at Runaway Bay on a Saturday morning.
