The African Wildlife Safaris Cycling Team is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Melbourne Cycling League. The MCL is a newly incorporated cycling club, affiliated with Cycling Victoria, which seeks to create a networked community of professional people with a passion for riding a bike. This new collaboration will broaden the AWS cycling team?s exposure to the wider professional community as well as spread the good word about road cycling. It will offer MCL members the opportunity to ride with elite young cyclists from a National Road Series team at several club directed rides during the year. MCL will also work with AWS to develop a feeder team of young, talented riders. The primary sponsor of the AWS Cycling Team is African Wildlife Safaris, a luxury safari company based in South Melbourne which has been operating for almost 30 years. Wildlife and road cycling might seem like strange bedfellows but for CEO Steve Cameron they are both his work and his passion.?In 2012 he founded the AWS Cycling Team along with cyclist Steve Waite, with the aim of nurturing talented young cyclists as well as fostering the sport of cycling. The team?s core values are “Sacrifice, Commitment, Attitude and Responsibility” and the team is committed to becoming a force within the NRS, as well as a development feeder team to the pro ranks. Steve Cameron and Steve Waite believe ?both AWS and MCL share a passion for the health, social and environmental benefits of road cycling. We are also aware of the many similarities between a sports team and business, such as the importance of teamwork, motivation, endurance, competition, achieving goals and coping with pressure.? MCL President Andrew Gooding says of the partnership ?Thinking back over our discussions with AWS, the partnership seemed destined to happen even before we met. As it turns out, we were both on each other?s radars because we?d figured out that we have shared qualities, connections and ambitions. It?s a really exciting partnership for the club, its members and its sponsors all of whom will benefit from the association?. The AWS team is looking forward to this new partnership and the opportunities for interaction between NRS level riders and the MCL network of professionals who cycle.
