Junior Training

Attention junior riders!
Since we now have a definite start date for junior track at the Pearsall St Velodrome (7 November), that means we can continue the Monday afternoon road rides.

So, each Monday in October, leaving at 4:15pm, we have a junior road ride. Meet at the town side of the Dean Street Bridge in Albury.


Spring racing, & beyond.

We're very happy to announce that AWPCC will be running a series of criterium races at the DECA driver training centre, 45 Albertson Rd, Barnawartha. That's in the Logic Centre.

Start date: Wednesday 12 October, fortnightly. Times to be announced. Entry of $5.Our plan is to have a number of races: juniors first, then as many races as fit the numbers who register. We aim to have A, B & C grades. It would be great to have women's-specific racing too. For those who are new to racing, we will have experienced riders to guide and inform.
Keep an eye on your inbox, and on the club's media, for final details.
There's also the summer tradition of velodrome riding about to start, too. See below for more track news.
A very brief advance warning: in early December we're planning a relaxed AWPCC Christmas party and club champion presentations. Probably in a park, near a BBQ, with all invited.

Velodrome news Great news - junior track this year is going to be run by Greg Featonby. Feato is a life member of the club for good reason. He has an immense amount of knowledge to pass on, as well as great love for the sport of cycling.
The relevant information: Monday afternoon, from 5:30pm, Pearsall St Lavington, starting Monday 7 November.
Senior training: join the crew training each Tuesday evening, 6:30pm-8:30pm at the velodrome.
