Ride the track

Track Cycling Trips to the Forest City Velodrome - Feb 24-26 & March 24-26 

I am planning two weekend trips to Forest City Velodrome (FCV) in London Ontario. One in February and one in March. All ages, from 13 to adult to, well, "even older than me" are welcome. New track riders are welcome, but all participants should have strong basic cycling skills, and be able to maintain a speed of at least 35KPH for 10 minutes. 
We have the flexibility to tailor the training to each rider. We want to make sure all riders have a program that addresses their goals. There will be training sessions for competitive riders, as well as sessions for new and recreational riders.
I expect the cost to be $120 per rider for the 3 days, including track bike rental, plus hotel, plus meals. I'll take the OBC van, which holds 8. The OBC Junior race team gets first dibs on seats in the van.
