Track Cycling

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. As long as you can ride a bike you can have a go under the watchful eye of a coach.

Cycling on Calshot's velodrome couldn’t be easier for either adult or junior riders.

New for this year are our junior courses.

For adults we offer track tasters for the ‘have a go’ first timer and three skills courses offering a steady progression to become a fully confident track rider.

 

Calshot Track Rider Competencies

Regular track time is essential for advancing through the Calshot pathway. Riders must practice the skills and techniques in order to become relaxed, confident and safe on the track.

Skill fade is inevitable, to ensure the safety of you, the coach and other riders maximum periods between sessions must be adhered to. However, if you feel you suitable experience i.e accredited at another track, please email the centre (calshot.bk@hants.gov.uk). 

The table below gives details of maximum time between sessions. As courses are very popular, once you have completed the pre requisites secure your place as soon as you can:

 

Please Note: In order to demonstrate the correct skills, a rider must complete a minimum of two Stage 3 sessions before being cleared to move onto Stage 4
