Training and Racing
We are a friendly, family club and welcome riders of all abilities to ride on our purpose built outdoor track at Sporting Club Cramlington.
When can you have a try?
Come along for a free taster at our training on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm and Sunday afternoons from 12:30pm
For under 16s we run a beginners Friday Bike Night from 6.30pm
What are the bikes like?
The club has bikes for you to use. They are easy to ride as there are no brakes or gears to worry about. Just pedal on the straights & freewheel round the bends.
What do I need to wear?
A long sleeved top, trousers and trainers. We have gloves and helmets for you to use but use your own if you have them.
What kind of track is it?
It's oval like a velodrome with banked bends and a soft red shale surface.
What are the races like?
Short sprints. It's 4 laps with 4 riders, usually 2 from each team per race. Four points for the first over the line, then 3,2,1.
When do we race?
We have fun races as part of training, organise friendlies with other clubs and also host Go Ride beginners races for under 16s at weekends
It's a great time to get into the sport as we are planning to race in the North & Scotland League in 2019.
