Track sessions, aimed at all abilities including newcomers and youngsters are held at Newport’s Geraint Thomas National Velodrome in Newport. This world class facility combined with availability of accredited club coaches allows access to this unique cycling experience.
Sessions are coached by Chippenham Wheelers coaches or Velodrome staff. The aim is to introduce riders to the delights of riding the steeply banked wooden track in a safe fashion, and to further improve the relevant skills in order that they might progress to regular racing on the track. It is a good work out.
Members taking part in these sessions can bring their own track bikes, hire one at the circuit (for around £11) or arrange to hire a club one (£5). Remember, track bikes have no brakes and are fixed wheel – no gears or freewheel.
Track Bike Hire
The club have eight track bikes available for hire, at a cost of £5 for adults and £3 for children’s per session. We would request that riders not attending track sessions return the bikes in order to ensure that we have the maximum number available for all our riders. To arrange hire, please contact Andy Cadwallader firstname.lastname@example.org 07768 342928. Details, of bikes available are given below.
