Wednesday Night Racing Taupo Velodrome
We are pleased to announce that we will be resuming our Wednesday night track sessions starting this Wednesday the 15th May 2019 as the new lights have now been installed. We and the Taupo District Council are aware that there are still some issues in regards to the final surface which are still being worked through but lets show our support by utilising this great resource. If you do not have a track bike the club has spare bikes (free for club members and available for a small hireage fee for non members) , just bring your own pedals. This is a great way to keep your pedals turning during winter and improve skills and fitness, come along from 5.30pm every Wednesday (weather permitting) If you wish to ride on the velodrome any other time there is now an online booking form or contact the Events Team on 07 376 0899 during business hours or submit a Request to Book a Venue form . You can just call in anytime in case the velodrome is free, but if another person or group has a booking you will not be able to ride.
