We organise training rides throughout the year. Some are formal training such as track training on groups, others are more informal road bunch rides or cyclo-cross training days. For all of them, to be involved you are required to have a Cycling Australia licence.
In Summer, during daylight savings, training on track bikes is run at Adcock Park Velodrome on Monday nights, and track racing is held on the Velodrome on Wednesday nights. First Wednesday Night race is at 6:45pm after the Junior Development Racing has finished, please make sure you do not interrupt the training sessions on arrival, warm-up begins at 6:15pm for all riders.
In Winter, training is run at Adcock Park on both Monday and Wednesday nights on road bikes.
Usual training times are: Juniors 4:30pm – 7:00pm and Seniors 7:00pm – 8:30pm.
Please see the Calendar Page for all training rides and races. Club Calendar
