Road bikes on track will kick off Sunday 18th October, 1:30pm at Johnston Park, Feilding before track racing. For the first two weeks it will be run on Sunday (18th & 25th October), we will then evaulate whether it stays on Sunday until Christmas or if we move to Monday evenings.
Greg Bryan has run Road bikes on track for 6 years very successfully, with this being his last year we are looking for someone to take over running this. Therfore whether it is held on a Sunday or a Monday will be dependant on what suits the organiser and also the riders.
Caters for: ALL ages, mainly attracting primary to high school aged people.
Equipment requirements: Any sort of bike (BMX, mountain bike or road bike) covered shoes and a helmet.
Cost: Gold coin donation to contribute to spot prizes at the end of year.
Location: Johnston Park Velodrome, Feilding
When? Runs over the summer months (October to March), on either Sunday afternoons or Monday evenings.
Keep an eye out for the season programme on the BikeManawau website under ‘Track Cycling’ or the Facebook group ‘BikeManawatu Track nights’ and just rock up to racing.
This is a great introduction to track racing, as you get used to the track, rules, racing and etiquette without having to worry about using the ‘different’ track bike. We encourage riders from this group to come along to one of our track ‘have a go’ days to try out a track bike.
