Trademark Behaviours              

Stronger Together

Unity is our most powerful force for change.  Everyone at AusCycling is a teammate and we support each other, listen to each other, and have each other’s backs. Our different skills and personalities are key assets, but we will only unlock them if we listen with respect and compassion and value each other’s contributions regardless of pillar, discipline, or seniority.

Win Well

Results come and go, but the legacy we leave is forever. We pursue our goals with fierce determination, but never to the point where we betray our personal or professional principles and values, and never at the expense of our athletes and our staff. We commit to the holistic development of our athletes and our staff, recognising wellbeing as the foundation of sustainable success. We celebrate with passion and humility. We lose and we learn. We’re accountable to ourselves and to those around us. We commit to Win Well – our success is richer when earned in the right way.

People First

AusCycling is a safe, supportive organisation where individuals are given the respect, attention, and tools to grow in their roles and as people. We

celebrate our wins and regard mistakes as a chance to learn, rather than blame. We see the whole person and understand the vital connection between work, family, friends, and time to recharge.  When we eventually leave AusCycling, we will be better professionals and better people.

Be Bold

We have a rare opportunity to create a new and exciting path for cycling and riding in Australia. We are brave enough to question and disrupt, we take risks and welcome a variety of views and styles. We respect our history and honour those who built our foundations, but we will not be bound by our past or traditional ways. We create space and opportunities to realise a new ambition, a new culture and a new way of doing things.
