Ok, so you like to ride, but don't see yourself as a "track star" or maybe you do?
LWA Members, VPCC have riding options for you!
Try, Ride, Race the Track new for 2023 is thereimagination of VPCC tried and true Try the Track program. Why mess with greatness? Well, it’s time to step it up a notch to fully expand the program to include more learning, more riding, and more racing.VPCC new program is increased to six hours of track cycling education, which will promote safer riding for our structured training sessions and safer racing for our racing sessions. Participants can choose 1, 2, or 3 sessions, but each session will serve as a prerequisite for the subsequent session. Participants must be 9 years old and up.
TRY THE TRACK
Are you new to the track? You haven’t taken a spin around VPCC concrete crater yet? Well this is your opportunity. All you need is a moderate sense of balance and your own helmet. That’s all it takes. It’s just like riding a bike. 😉
You'll start off with the basics and answer all of your questions about our velodrome and velodrome riding and racing. Soon you’ll be riding one of our track bikes at your own pace on a smooth and flat surface. As you build confidence, you can ride on our track surface where you will feel how easy and exhilarating it is to ride on the banking. No worries about slipping off like a slippery wooden track, our concrete is sticky and many riders have demonstrated that they can come to a full stop even on the steepest part of the track. Don’t worry, we won’t try that skill until a later session.
