Milton Velodrome – Try the Track Update

Those of you wanting to try riding the boards are encouraged to register for a Try the Track session.

The sessions at the Milton Velodrome are quite full so getting a dedicated session just for the SRCC will be difficult. I was out there watching the Canadian Track Championships the track looks fantastic. The website seems to be in much better shape now so if you were not able to register in Nov/Dec then try again now and you will hopefully have some better success.

The track will be open to the public the week of Jan 26 to certified riders.

Those of you who want to see the track there is another event the weekend of Jan 9-11. The Milton International Track Challenge has races running all weekend. Tickets are 10$ I believe.

  1. Eric: so far I only know of the three of us (inc. Wilfred) going. There isn’t any way to see who else is registered on the Milton site. Anybody else heading to the track that day, please drop a line here.
    I can offer to drive on Saturday as well.

  2. I’m not sure who is exactly going. Any interest out there in carpools? Can we start a group email to arrange?

  3. I just got back from my track recertification class. The track is fantastic, you guys are going to enjoy it. Just a couple notes: Its warm in the velodrome so shorts and short sleeve jerseys are perfect. I would wear gloves in the case of a mishap the boards are soft and you will get splinters. Its also very dry in there so bring water and drink often. One final note, the waitlists are long. If you have a date and you can make it then I recommend you take advantage of it because 1) you will enjoy it and 2) it will be a long time before you get another spot in another session.

  4. It’s a 40min drive, so definitely noon at the latest. Anybody else out there booked for the 24th?

  5. I think we all got bumped to the 24th. Should we meet at the shop at noon for carpools?

  6. I’m bumped to the 24th as well. I was thinking of withdrawing, but now that Gabhan will be there to laugh at me, I’ll give it a shot.

  7. Try the track is a great session for people who literally want to just try the track, however this will not get you certified for drop-in sessions. You should be looking at track A and B certifications or the re-certification class if you have been to FCV’s intro classes.
    There is also an 8week intro to track class that will get you certified in the process, as well as lots of skills for riding.
    All mentioned classes include you bike rental!

  8. Dammit, mixed up again, meant the 24th! I’ll see myself out.

  9. I’m registered for the Jan. 13th (1pm-3pm) session. Did anybody else manage to get bumped to this date as well?
