Event Description

I have reserved the "Track 1 - Intro to the track" session for the BCC on Sunday January 11, 2015.  There is space for 12 riders.  The session is from 12:00-2:00 PM.  Cost is $30 (cash only) and includes the rental of the track bike.  Bring your shoes, pedals and helmet.

Ever since I first got on the track a few years ago, I have organized this roadtrip a few times to introduce other BCCers to the fun.  With the PanAm Games coming up, there's no better way to get a real appreciation for the track events than to give it a try yourself.

Please post to reserve your spot.  Nervous about the fixie?  Anxious about the banked corners?  Don't be.  It's just like riding a bike!

Here are some posts from previous trips.
