Bournemouth Cycling Centre

Welcome to the Bournemouth Cycling Centre

What's on at the Bournemouth Cycling Centre during 2014?

(Note: Any beginners to track riding are very welcome to attend the Sunday afternoon sessions starting at 2.00 pm on the 4th May. Details are below.

Three Fridays - Pre-League Race Training 2014
Time – 18:30 to dusk
Dates - 4th, 11th and 25th April.
Coach - Dr. Chester Hill
These are three sessions aimed at riders wishing to get a step ahead of the competition prior to the Bournemouth Track League which is starting on the 2nd May.
These sessions are for experienced track riders, who are competent at riding in bunches on 250m tracks or have similar experience from Calshot Velodrome. BCC accreditation is not necessary for these sessions, although riders are expected to be of a good technical standard, and fit enough to be competitive in either the A or B Bournemouth senior track league events. 
These sessions will also help riders wishing to gain fast track accreditation to ride BCC track events.

A series of twelve track nights at BCC starting in May. These sessions are being promoted for members of the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers but will be open to all riders, no matter what club they belong to.
Each session will accommodate riders with a variety of ability levels and will include drills for the “fast boys and girls” and for those looking for something a bit less demanding. A structured warm-up will be followed by quality coaching sessions and over the course of twelve nights it is hoped that all track disciplines can be covered.
