Track cycling

Track cycling is suitable for a wide range of riders.

Sprint athletes tend to be muscular and capable of producing massive power for short distances while endurance riders are lighter and more suited to maintaining high speeds over longer distances.

Ride Etiquette on the Track :

  • Please ensure that your bike is well serviced and in good working condition before attending a track ride session.

  • Always wear an approved helmet and gloves.

  • Enter the track when a responsible person has given permission – always check for yourself that it’s safe.

  • Listen to the coach or person in charge of the session.

  • Listen to the responsible riders who are in the group – these have been chosen by the club to help you and make things as safe as possible.

  • Do not use inappropriate language at any time.

  • Always take care not to put at risk any other rider or person standing on or near the track.

  • Riders should attend the session most suited for their needs – they must not speed a session up that is not intended for them. Riders will be informed if they should ride below or above the blue line.
