2014 Race Schedule

Racing is on selected Saturday nights and starts at 7 PM. However, certain special events are planned for other days of the week.

Please note that to ensure the safety of all, no rider will be allowed to race in a mass start race without first having completed a minimum numbers of laps on the Forest City Velodrome. This requirement may be waived for experienced track riders who can demonstrate their ability to hold a straight line and their knowledge of track etiquette. Such riders will still need to arrive at the track early enough to participate in a track orientation session. Experienced road riders coming to the track should read Dan Currell's "Track Cycling -- What a roadie needs to know about racing on the velodrome" available at http://www.ridethetrack.com/pdf/trackracing_intro.pdf.

Riders must sand the shine off any new slick (treadless) tires (80-grit sandpaper stapled to a block of wood works well).

Please check the web site regularly for updates.

For more information about any of these events, contact Rob Good by email at ForestCityVelodrome@live.com.
