Soccer to track cycling

Postby sponge » Tue Oct 05, 2010 6:26 pm

Hey
After a few consecutive broken legs due to soccer, I have decided to give it a miss for a season or two. Consequently I’m in need of a new sport, so can anyone point me in the right direction to start track cycling.

Additional info – 20 yr male living in Parramatta NSW and im just looking to have some fun with the new sport.

Mikesbytes should be along soon to fill you in. He's a member at Dulwich Hill, but will be able to tell you about circuits closer to you.

Parramatta is you local bike club and they have some track cyclists.

You can join any club but being in one in your local area can be handy.

As for velodromes, there is one in Paramatta, but the main one is Dunc Grey at Bass Hill.

Cheers

I think there may be some sort of bike hire at Dunc Grey. Try contacting Bankstown cycling club.
