BM Track Membership 2021-2022 Season
Welcome to our returning and new Rookie riders for the 2022 Bike Manawatu track season.
For those new to the sport, the BM Track season offers a good mix of competitive and fun racing in a social and supportive environment. We cater to ages and abilities as the racing is split into grades based on their previous experience (our younger Junior riders are split into their A and B categories).
The track season is run over the summer months (October to April) at Johnston Park Velodrome in Feilding every Sunday afternoon and a few Thursday’s sessions in between.
Each week’s racing will be different with a racing timetable released a few days prior. On race day, please ensure to bring your helmet, gloves, shoes, and plenty of water. You will be assigned your own race number at the start of the season, and this must be worn to each meeting or else you will be unable to compete.
