Over a thousand cyclists have had the interesting and rewarding experience of being an MBTC member over the long period the club has been running. Membership opens the door to great opportunities for you to tour locally, on islands, interstate, and even overseas. You can learn all about bicycle touring from experts with years of experience in the saddle, and make life-long friends. The great variety of rides available on our club calendar enables everyone to regularly experience new routes and sights. Club meetings and social nights allow you to connect to all things bicycle touring, whether you are interested in bicycle maintenance and setup,  technical aspects of touring, exploring the country, or just meeting new and interesting people. If you want to discover Victoria, Australia, or the world, do it by bike!
