Wet Weather Rec Ride
Due to the demise of the weather we are now offering the option of a wet weather recreational ride on Sundays from 11am – 1pm starting this weekend.

These are paid for by concession card or $10 cash (if there is cash can the last person to leave please leave the folder in the lock up – either push under the door as you leave or leave on the work bench thank you) – Just ensure you sign in.

Warning – there will not be a wet weather option on Queen’s Birthday Weekend 2nd June (due to the National Race Series), or Sunday 16 June due to the private booking. Keep an eye on the weekly track schedule – just go to our website home page and under the logo (top, left) you will see the second tab in the blue line says track schedule – click on this and it’s updated each week.

Sprint Squad
Sprint squad will only be held on Mondays with no further Wednesday sessions until after the Architecture Unlimited Track Challenge.
