Track Finished for 2011-12 Get ready for next season
Post date: Sep 28, 2011 1:0:59 AM
Track will start up again when daylight savings starts in October 2012
All interested riders are invited - particularly new riders and track novices. It is a great opportunity to give track a try!
Queanbeyan track is located in the park in Central Queanbeyan (behind the police station);
Track & road bikes acceptable;
New riders can get practical advice on gearing, bunch riding & track etiquette;
Interested riders can try out a track bike;
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. You can do your own thing.
We hope all riders will later adjourn to the Rendevous Cafe to discuss the coming track season.
A few basics on track etiquette for the practice session:
If you are cruising around the track, ride high (next to the rail);
Tempo riders use the centre of the track;
Use the inner track if you are circulating fast or sprinting;
Hold your line - don't make any sudden changes of speed or position;
Be very careful if you are crossing or moving on / off the track;
Start from the fence and be aware of riders approaching;
Be careful braking on road bikes. Remember the track bike on your arse has no brakes!
Regular track racing will commence as soon as daylight savings starts again in late 2012
