Narrabundah Track Practice Session
The 2016-17 track racing season will again utilise the refurbished Narrabundah Track. Please note that this is a high-banked, oval track suitable only for conventional track bikes with a high bottom bracket. We are unable to accommodate road bikes on this track.
The track racing season will kick off with a Practice Session early October.
There will be no racing. All interested riders are invited - particularly new riders and track novices. It is a great opportunity to give track a try!
Narrabundah track is located off Goyder Street in Narrabundah;
Only track bikes are acceptable;
We welcome riders to try a high-banked track for the first time;
New riders can get practical advice on gearing, bunch riding & track etiquette;
Interested riders can try out a track bike (bring your own pedals and shoes);
Experienced riders can tune up the machinery & motor;
All riders can express their preference for events & races;
The practice session will be around 1hr 30 mins;
There is no formal structure to the practice. We can assist with introductory training, if requested;
You can do your own thing, if you prefer.
A few basics on track etiquette for the practice session:
Use the designated track positions for cruising, tempo or fast pacing (The faster you ride the higher you should be positioned on track. Overtake outside other riders);
Hold your line - don't make changes of speed or position unless you are clear of other riders;
Be very careful if you are crossing or moving on / off the track;
Start from the fence and be aware of riders approaching;
It is best to wear clear goggles (the shaded portions of track have very low visibility with sunnies);
All riders will need to be cautious, as there will be novice riders at the practice session.
Regular track racing will start mid October.
