About our club

Sportcity Velo was set up in 2002 as the senior branch of Eastlands Velo. We are based at Manchester Velodrome and our main activity is track cycling. Members compete in local and national track events and we run weekly training sessions for youth and junior members. Our main activity is track cycling, and we also do mountain biking, closed circuit racing and cyclo cross. We work alongside our sister club, Eastlands Velo, which caters mainly for younger age group (9 - 13) riders. Our sessions are open to members of both clubs and we share coaches and resources.

Beginners – Everyone starts at the Eastlands Monday evening beginner’s session. This is for riders from 10 to 15 years of age and runs every Monday (except Bank Holidays) from 6pm to 7pm. It costs £5 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.eastlandsvelo.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 8am to 11am, and riders learn more skills and begin track racing. The fee is £7 (£5 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.

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.

Current session charges are: Mondays £5.20 (£4.20 for Manchester City Council residents with proof of residence), Saturday/Wednesday £8 (£7 Manchester residents).
