oh lawd he comin

The tradition was started when two of our more… vocal members had a whinge about one of the races being canceled on the last night of racing in 2017. This is an unofficial race, with no points being awarded.

This year’s benefactor is the Britannia Secondary: Breakfast Program. More information about this program can be found here.

Entry for the Krampus Christmas Challenge is $20, with 100% of all entries going to the charity.

Last year we had prizes for winners of each race, with the winner of the last race getting the prestigious lump of coal. This year also boasts a similar, but top secret prize!

There will also be a Christmas Crawl, winner take all! Entry is $3. Heckling is encouraged.

Racing kicks off at 6:45, there will be no Novice category. Schedule of events:

Burnaby Velodrome’s Dog Policy

May 22, 2018 | By | No Comments

In the past there has not been an official policy on dogs. However, in light of two recent events, the Board of Directors have decided to put together a simple policy and set of guidelines.

The two events in question were:
-A dog pooping just outside of the office
-A dog on the track during warm up during March’s edition of Bare Bones while people were on the track

The guidelines are pretty simple:
-Dogs must be leashed. Said leash must be attached to something solid.
-Dogs should only relieve themselves outside. Not inside. Owners should cleanup after their dog’s bowel movement.
-Dogs shouldn’t be overly barking.
-Dogs shouldn’t bite people.

Service and guide dogs are always welcome.

The Board doesn’t really want to ban dogs from the track, so please adhere to these simple, and reasonable guidelines.

Cats are currently informally banned from the track, due to this incident. This is also why there’s a sign above the start/finish line stating that no cats are allowed.

2018 Summer/Winter Pricing, and Licenses!

January 2, 2018 | By | No Comments

2018 Winter/Summer prices are now live in the membership portal.

Also, don’t forget to bring proof of your renewed 2018 CBC/UCI License! Otherwise you won’t be able to ride the track. If you don’t have the physical card, don’t worry, the emailed receipt is enough.
