March 2014 - Burnaby Velodrome Club

May Open House

March 28, 2014 | By | No Comments

Spring is here which means it’s almost time for our annual Open House. Each year we run back to back Learn to Ride sessions over the course of one weekend for anyone interested in riding the track. Participants will learn first hand what it takes to ride fixed gear bikes in Western Canada’s only indoor velodrome. There’s a lot more to riding your bike indoors than just escaping the weather and this is the perfect opportunity to see what we mean. And, did we mention, it’s free!

This year the Open House is taking place on May 3rd-4th with sessions on both days happening at 9:00am, 11:15am, and 2:00pm. Registration isn’t quite open but be sure you join our email list if you’re interested in participating. Class sizes are restricted to 18 participants.

Why ride indoors over the summer? With our racing season over, it’s a great time to experience the laid back atmosphere the track offers. Since many of our seasoned riders are putting their track fitness to use on the road over the summer we traditionally have smaller classes. This means that our summer riders tend to get more interaction with our coaches in our weekly coached workouts. Another benefit is that we offer heavily discounted membership fees for summer riders. Which means you can work with one of our NCCP certified coaches for next to nothing. Don’t be fooled, track cycling isn’t just for racers!

LTR Cancelled This Evening
