About our club

We are a youth/junior club, based at Manchester Velodrome since it opened in 1994. Our main activity is track cycling, and we also do mountain biking, closed circuit racing and cyclo cross. We run weekly track sessions at the velodrome for youth and junior riders from beginner level upwards.

Beginners – Everyone starts at the Eastlands on one of our beginner’s sessions held on Saturday mornings. This is for riders from 10 to 15 years of age and runs on Saturday from 8:00am to 9:00am. It costs £6 to ride, and this includes bike and helmet hire. Places are limited and must be booked and paid for in advance via link on www.sportcityvelo.com. You do not need to be a club member to ride this session.

Intermediate – This is a club session and you must be a first claim member of Eastlands or Sportcity Velo. Once riders have learned basic track cycling skills on Mondays, the next step is our Saturday morning session. This runs from 9:00am to 12:00am, and riders learn more skills and begin track racing. The fee is £15.50 (£13.50 for Manchester residents) bike hire included. Before you come to this session, you must have completed the Monday beginner’s course with a satisfactory assessment by a club coach. Sessions must be pre-booked using the link provided when you are invited to move from the beginners sessions.

Advanced – Wednesdays from 6pm to 8pm. Invitation only for Youth/Junior riders progressing from Saturdays. The session aims to develop racing skills and fitness for riders to compete in local and national track events. Sessions must be pre-booked using the link provided to members of the club.

Current session charges are: Mondays £6, Wednesday £12.50 (£10.50 for Manchester residents) and Saturday £15.50 (£13.50 for Manchester residents).

Manchester residents must provide a copy of their council tax bill as proof of residency.
In 2002 we set up our sister club, Sportcity Velo, which caters mainly for older (14+) riders. Our sessions are open to members of both clubs and we share coaches and resources.

In 2002 our sister club Sportcity Velo was established to provide a separate racing identity for our older riders 14+. All our sessions are open to members of both clubs.
