OBC Track Cycling Sessions

Share Article

This year the OBC will be running regular, one day, track cycling trips to the velodrome at the Centre National Bromont, in Bromont Quebec. http://centrenationalbromont.com/caracteristiques-du-velodrome/

These trips will be similar to last year's Bromont trips, somewhat improved and better organized, now that we have experience running the sessions under our belt!

We have 3 firm July dates:

  • Sunday, July 9th
  • Friday, July 14th
  • Sunday, July 30th

You can register for as many sessions as you want.

Depending on interest, we plan to have an additional 3 sessions in August.

Please register ASAP by emailing Bill Bourne

These trips will be open to *all* OBC members, both youth and adults. Each trip will be "customized" for the specific ages and abilities of the attendees. Participants can attend as many or as few trips as they would like.

Track cycling is one of the best ways to develop a number of important cycling skills. It's also a blast... incredibly fun! If you have never ridden a velodrome before, these sessions are a great way to get introduced to the joys of track cycling.

To attend these sessions, you need to be:

  • Age 11 or older
  • An OBC member
  • Youth should be at the equivalent of L2T or T2T from the OBC Youth Development program. Adults should be at an experienced road rider … Touring 2 level and up.
  • You don’t need any fixed gear riding experience. Training for brand new track riders will be included in the program.
  • You don't need a track bike, the Centre National has bikes available.

The cost for the day is:

  • $15 for experienced riders with their own track bike
  • $30 for experienced riders who are renting a bike
  • $45 for new riders … this covers a 2 hour initiation session from a Bromont coach, the track bike rental, and access to the track for the day

Cheers, Bill
