FastTrack Youth Development Program @ Westshore Velodrome
A fun and safe venue for young riders who would like to improve their bike handling and safety awareness skills, as well as build overall fitness in a friendly environment. Sessions are designed for riders aged 7+ and rental equipment is available each day. Cycling BC strongly suggests that new participants are iRide skill level 3+ due to the nature of the banked turns. All sessions are covered by Cycling BC and the Greater Victoria Velodrome Association’s insurance policy with Marsh Canada.
The GVVA Fast Track youth development program targets riders in the FUNDAMENTALS, Learn to Train, or Train to Train stages of long-term athlete development (LTAD), generally 7-16 years old (new riders who are in the U19 age category are welcomed also). Practices are Mondays and Thursdays 4:30-6pm @ the Westshore Velodrome, riders are encouraged to ride out and arrive early to setup their track bikes, group warm up will start at 4:30pm. Our detail schedule can be found on our calendar: https://www.gvva.bc.ca/events/. Program runs from April to August (half-season/10 weeks options are also available). Requirements: helmet and cycling appropriate attire. Cycling shoes/pedals are recommended.
