Winter Program 2019

Welcome to the 2019 junior road cycling season!  We are again using Pushys’ Plus Fyshwick for our indoor sessions, thanks Pushys!  We will use a variety of training venues including Dairy Flat Road and Stromlo Forest Park Criterium track .  We will also be exploring the use of one other secret location, hopefully this will give the juniors plenty of variety and fun.

The details:

Wednesday Night Indoor Sessions:

4:30 for a 4:45 start.  Finishing at 5:45

For these sessions you will need:

  • A trainer and bike
  • Water bottles
  • A towel
  • Food

All indoor sessions will take place at Pushys Plus Fyshwick.

Sunday Outdoor Sessions:

All sessions start at 9am. Please download the attached file for dates.

We will not be training on weekends of events (junior tours) or school holidays.  This has reduced the number of weekends.  Nonetheless, the program will offer great opportunities for your child to participate, improve, make friends and race!

Cost:

The Winter Program for 2019 is free of charge.  This is due to the help of sponsorship from McDonalds and Pushys, also from a dedicated group of volunteers.  Parents are encouraged to assist where they can and participate if they would like.  We have found this has worked really well in the past and would like to continue with a model that promotes all of the family getting involved!

What do you need?

  • A Cycling Australia Membership
  • A helmet that meets the Australian Safety Standard
  • A road-worthy bike
  • Appropriate clothing – it gets very cold and this can ruin your child’s experience.  Good quality cycling clothing is essential.
  • Covered shoes or cycling shoes.
