Greetings and one has to say it’s a pleasant reprieve from all the rain of late to have some crisp, clear days ahead.
With the long weekend coming up, a great place to hang out and check out some cycling action will be here at the SIT Zero Fees Velodrome for the first of three events in the newly developed Subway Series. This weekend around 50 riders will be put through a series of workshops and some new race concepts and the action on the track is free for all to view. So bring your family and friends along to see some of the country’s top under 19 and under 17 athletes.
Racing session times are 6pm-10-.30pm Friday, 9am-12pm and 1pm to 5pm Saturday, and 9am to 1pm Sunday, so head on down to check it out.
No Flyers Friday
There will be no Flyers session this Friday 5-6pm sorry due to the Subway Series.
The whole facility – stadium and velodrome – will be closed Monday for Queen’s Birthday. Enjoy the last long weekend until the next one in October.
