A bit of history.
The Australian Veteran Cycling Council Inc (AVCC) was formed in 1991 to cater for the interests of veteran cyclists throughout Australia. While Veteran Cycling clubs were active from around 1982 in South Australia, it wasn’t until 1997 that SAMCA formed in order to provide some co-ordination and support for the various clubs. The first SAMCA President was Rolly Ferris, following his 18 year run as the President of the Southern Vets Cycling Club. Bob Ritter was the founding Secretary of SAMCA.
