We had a great turnout today at Randy’s beginner clinic at the track. If you missed it, it’s not too late! Randy is running a similar program almost every Monday this summer, from 5 until 6:30 pm (see our calendar for details). No previous experience or equipment is necessary.
After the beginner session, Randy will be doing drills and track training for those ready to ride. You can expect a decent workout while building on your track skills. 6:30 until 8 pm.
See the Q & A below for more information
- Can I ride my own bike on the track?
Yes, but only if it is a proper track bike (fixed gear, no brakes)
- I don’t have a track bike, what will I ride?
Velocity Cycling Club has a fleet of high quality Marinoni’s for use by members, just come a bit early to get one set up! The AVA also rents bikes for $5.
- Do I need to bring pedals?
The bikes are provided without pedals, so it is preferred that each rider brings their own. However, if you don’t own pedals we have a couple sets of flat pedals for use with regular street shoes (ie. running shoes).
- What do I wear?
Cycling clothing is preferred, however shorts and running shoes works too.
- Seems hard, can I do this?
Yes! Randy is an excellent coach
- I’m not a beginner, is there something for me?
Yes! Right after the beginner sessions, from 6:30 until 8 Randy does intermediate drills and training. Randy will determine which beginners are ready for the intermediate sessions. And there’s always Track League racing on Thursdays!
- I have a friend who’s not a Velocity Member, can they come?
Yes, this coaching is actually by the AVA, not Velocity. The AVA has blanket insurance and bicycles for non-members. $5 per-use gets you a bike and coverage. If they’re a member of ERTC, EMCC, Pedalhead, or Juventus, they can ride free of charge if they can get their hands on a bike.
