The Club is organising another day out at Newport Velodrome this year. The last three years have been very successful trips, so get your booking in to Lance as soon as you can to avoid disappointment. If we get a good level of interest, Lance will organise a second trip which we will set up as a Club Track Championship day – so come and get some track training on the first visit.
For the many new members of the Club, this day out gives you a chance to try out riding on a top class indoor track on specialised fixed-wheel bikes under the close supervision of the Senior Coach at Newport. The Newport Velodrome is a copy of the track at Manchester and is used as a racing and training venue by the top riders in the country. The British riders are set to win a sackload of medals at the Olympics this year so you will get to see a little bit of what they are going through.
The excitement of riding those bankings is hard to beat so come and give it a go.

I have contacted Newport track for a coached session similar to the ones that we have attended in the past three years.
We have booked a 3 hour session on Saturday 15th March from 1.00pm to 4.00pm. We require a minimum of 13 riders (probably 20 to make it a Kenilworth-only event) and the day will suit novices and experienced riders.
If you would like to attend, I will require the following information urgently.

3.Distance from crank centre to top of saddle
4.Distance from tip of saddle to centre of bars

The total fee for this exciting day out is Â£30.00 (includes hire of track bike)
You must take your own Look compatible shoes or training shoes if using toeclips.
