Monday night racing has a fun and relaxed atmosphere where everyone is welcome, regardless of your club affiliation or ability. We would love to see you join the track family!

Track Rules

All velodromes have subtly different rules and Narrabundah is no exception.

  • Slower riders at the bottom, due to the steepness of the banking.
  • ALL riders must enter and exit the velodrome on foot, and start and finish at the bottom on the home straight.
  • Look out for other riders, especially when there are riders of different ability around. When passing in training, shout “Stay down”. This will let them know you are about to overtake them and that they must ‘hold their line’.
  • There is no racing or training if it is raining. Cancellations of racing will be notified on the club facebook page.
