Learn to Race

One of the most exhilarating things to do at the Burnaby Velodrome is to race. And our Learn to Race program was designed to get riders ready for the thrill of our Friday Night Racing. Classes run once per month, on a Friday or Saturday night. Check the schedule page to see when the next one is!


  • Please be aware that all participants must have completed their Learn to Ride sessions prior to participating in the Learn to Race, and have completed a minimum of two Novice Workouts.

The program includes:

  • Initial introduction to the theory and practice of mass start racing, a 90 minute session
  • As many subsequent Learn to Race sessions as you need to feel comfortable moving to our Friday Night Racing
  • Instruction after each race during our Friday Night Racing
