Perhaps you are a recreational rider, on the road or footpaths? Or maybe you haven’t tried cycling at all yet? There are many different pathways that you can get involved in Track Cycling, though one of the best places for you to be introduced to the world of Track Cycling is through Cycling Queensland’s Come & Try program.
Come & Try is run weekly, and is great for building fitness in a safe, controlled, off-road environment. One of our friendly coaches will run the session, rolling you through the basics of track cycling, building your skill set and your riding confidence.
What is included? Each Come & Try session you attend, bike hire, helmet hire, insurance, coaching cost and 1 hour of track time is included in your entry fee.
There are Junior Come & Try sessions available for younger riders wanting to try riding on the track. For Juniors to participate in sessions, they must be tall enough to fit our small track bikes, unless they have their own track bike.
If you are female, why not come to Women on Track? Their aim is to provide an inclusive environment for women ranging from complete beginners to those who ride a bike more regularly.
So, you have successfully completed a number of Come & Try sessions. You are feeling pretty confident on the track. What is next?
