Calshot has the only indoor banked velodrome in the South of England. This national standard track was built in 1997 and can be used by a wide range of cyclists from novices to international standard.
Monthly Track Sessions are held from October to March on the 147m indoor velodrome at the Calshot Activities Centre. There is a £10 charge and again, these sessions are open to experienced track riders only.
The Calshot Activity Centre also run their own track familiarisation courses, details of which can be found here.
2014/5 Winter Training Sessions:
After a cracking Track summer at Slades we now go indoors. This winter, all the Club Calshot Sessions will be on Sundays, mostly a 09.00am start and all 3 hours to give lots of track time. Unfortunately we can only accommodate experienced track riders in these sessions to stay safe with the numbers of riders we anticipate. The initial dates are 12th Oct, 2nd Nov and 7th Dec, all starting at 9.00am sharp on the track so riders need to be there in plenty of time. There will also be an opportunity for a group to ride home for those riders who can make their own bike transport arrangements.
These will quality sessions aimed at keeping some leg and brain(!) speed through the winter. With that in mind the maximum gear allowed for these sessions will be limited to 48 x 16, please be aware of this to avoid disappointment when we do a gear check. Those who want to really develop more leg speed should be on 47 x 16 or even 46 x 16 at least through to Xmas.
And remember we are talking Calshot so wrap up warm!!!
Cost for all sessions is £10 per rider + bike hire if needed.
