Yep training starts 11th October, which is the perfect time to try it out. I did my first track ride on a Tuesday training session in January and was racing that Friday night. I think the adult session starts ~7pm (check newsletter at the bottom), but get there a bit before it starts so you can get a bike and pedals set up etc.

Since you're LACC, go and see Stu Will or Ian (the really tall guy with the tools) on the night, tell 'em you're a friend of mine and you'll be in like Flynn. Be warned though that their goal is to get you hooked on track, which isn't hard.

I probably won't be there on the Tuesday, but I will be on the Friday night.

Considering I have spent the night watching the first day of the 2011 track world champs I really dont think they will have to try that hard at all. Got my first road race on Monday and will be racing on track in a few weeks. Not going to lie pretty excited for it all. Now if only I had money.


Money? Don't need front or rear DR, don't need shifters, don't need brakes, don't need bottle cages, don't need cables, don't need cluster...simple really. You can borrow a track bike for a while if you're keen. I know some guys who rode the club bikes for a year before they got their own. Just need a helmet, racing license and legs.
