Check In at the Velodrome
If you’ve been to the track lately you may have noticed a new monitor in the window of the BVC office. If you haven’t been to the track yet this year, you’ll see it there the next time you go (also be sure to fill out a new waiver and renew your Cycling BC license). The monitor is part of a new system to streamline check-in at the track. Rather than scan your barcode, you need only enter the numbers at the end of the barcode in order to successfully check in.
For example, if your barcode is:
This new check in procedure applies to all riders with only two exceptions. If you are coming to the track for your first Learn to Ride, you will still need to check in with the track supervisor. Also, if you are taking part in a specific class, such as a Learn to Race or a Madison Clinic, you will also need to check in with the track supervisor.
This system should make it much faster and easier to check in prior to riding. It will also allow us to better understand the usage patterns of the track so we can more accurately plan sessions and allocate track time. As we typically operate on the honor system, we will occasionally conduct spot checks. If we find that people are riding without checking in we will ask you to leave the session.
