DCRR was founded in September 2007, by the Dutton family, as a way to give back to the sport which has shaped their lives.
The requirments of the Office of Fair Trading to form a club, meant the organisation needed twelve founding members. Of those members, ten were from Scott and Kurt Dutton's immediate family. A petition to CQ outlining the goals of the club saw affiliation approved in November 2007. The petition highlighted a desire for an inclusive sporting club, where partners and families were involved and riders who participated in both racing and recreation were provided for.
The first club bunch ride occured in March 2008, with a massive four riders participating. Membership has grown to now over 200 people, making DCRR one of the fastest growing cycling club's in QLD. The club's membership is approximately 40% racing licences, 60% recreation and DCRR is proud to have a large proportion of women members.
We are proud to say our bunch rides now see over seventy people participate on a good day, and DCRR fielded six teams in the State Time Trial Titles in 2010. The club could not be what it is without the support of its wonderful members who contribute their time and ideas to make DCRR an amazing club.
2010 saw the introduction of DCRR's first Open Race, and it is our hope that we will continue to provide a great social network for cyclists, both racing and recreation focused.
If you are looking for a club that is active and socially focused we'd love to have you join DCRR. The club is already more than what the Dutton Family could have hoped for and we invite you to help shape the future of what is to be one of QLD's best clubs.
