27.09.2020
Good Morning All,
Due to the weather, we have had to cancel our Have A Go Day today. We apologise for any inconvenience. With all the water around, this will make the track unsafe to ride on. Sincerest apologies

 

Track Cycling is

  • Fun
  • Competitive
  • Safe
  • Social
  • For all ages
  • & we have Bikes available to hire

We provide for novices to world champions!

Come along and find out more about Track Cycling.
Track Is a good mix of competitive and fun racing in a very social, off road environment. We encourage any new riders to come along to our ‘have a go day’

If you really want to improve your cycling fitness and skills why not give track cycling a go at the Feilding Velodrome.
We run a great variety of races for all ages and abilities and fun events in a very supportive environment.

Please bring your helmet, pedals and cycling shoes. If you don’t have cycling shoes and pedals just bring your helmet and sports shoes, as we will also have bikes with pedals on them for you to ride.

Track is raced on the following years licence E.g. 2021
Juniors Grade is based on your age as at the 31st December 2021
Under 13 = 12 or younger at 31 December 2021
Under 15 = 14 or younger at 31 December 2021
Under 17 = 16 or younger at 31 December 2021
Under 19 = 18 or younger at 31 December 2021

Would You like to win more road races?
The track is one of the best places to develop that power sprint by riding a fixed gear track bike!

We especially encourage new riders by taking part in a development program, as you ride in grades of your ability and many races are handicapped

  • We have Track bikes for hire at an affordable cost
  • Qualified coaches will set your position up correctly
  • Orientation days for new riders

Stay out of the traffic and ride on the safety of a track

TRACK CYCLING – WORDS OF WISDOM
Track racing on a “fixy” is exciting cycling in its own right, and is also a great spectator sport.

What are the real benefits of riding track?
How does track racing benefit road cycling?
We can guarantee that track racing greatly improves a riders’ confidence, their ability to make rapid decisions, improve bike handling skills, and pedalling technique. It also dramatically improves a riders sprinting ability.
All these skills learnt on the track produce huge improvements in road cycling, especially criteriums raced on short road circuits.

A special tip on the benefits of riding a “fixy”:
If you set up a track bike or an old road frame with a single gear (on a low gear – 70” to 72”) for training on the road, this is excellent training. (Remember to put single brake on the bike) It is a far better investment than spending mega dollars on light weight road accessories / special light weight wheels to improve your road cycling.
