Club Affiliation Process

In 2016 Mountain Bike New Zealand (MTBNZ) and Cycling New Zealand (CNZ) agreed an integrated membership model, which enabled NZ Cycling and bike clubs to comply with the UCI affiliation / membership requirements. 


This is now reflected in the MTBNZ constitution, which provides for a cascade membership model, where MTB clubs affiliate to MTBNZ (as the Member Organisation), and they are in turn affiliated to Cycling New Zealand. 


This means that all members of affiliated MTB clubs are part of the National Federation.  As a result, all MTB clubs are covered by comprehensive insurance for all club activities including events. See insurance details here.

There are six steps involved in Affiliation:


  1. MTB club completes the Microsoft Word document (download button above & below) information to assist in affiliating to both MTBNZ/CNZ. The club confirms member numbers (Student /Individual /Family, etc) by providing membership data via an excel spreadsheet. (Example format here)

  2. Email the completed document back to MTBNZ (email address on document) together with the membership list excel spreadsheet.

  3. MTBNZ affiliation fee is then calculated by MTBNZ. Affliation fees are paid annually. The MTBNZ affiliation fee is based on prior year membership numbers. MTBNZ send an invoice for the amount depending on the yearly membership numbers provided.

  4. There will be a separate fee invoice generated by CNZ. This is a set value.

  5. When both fees are paid Affiliation is complete.

  6. MTBNZ sends Club the Affiliation letter / Insurance Info.

  7. Following completed Affiliation you will be issued with details on how to login to this MTBNZ website to update future club changes and details.
