Getting Started



How Do I Get Started?
All riders who take to the boards must start of by attending a certification course. These classes assist with giving a rider all the skills necessary to navigate our "lumberyard" safely. Once a rider has become certified they may join any of our sessions listed on this site. We provide FELT track bikes to those who do not own a track bike. To sign up for a certification class visit our website!

SAFETY FIRST:
The Velo Sports Center takes safety as its primary concern. The velodrome is a very safe place to ride if all riders are attentive and aware of their surroundings while maintaining proper etiquette for riding a velodrome. Helmets are required and all bikes should be well maintained.

Who Can Ride The Velo?
Anyone age 16 or older who can ride a bike and is interested in riding the track is welcome to ride the boards of the VELO Sports Center. For youth ages 8-16 we have specialized programming taught by five-time Olympian Connie Paraskevin (www.conniecycling.com).

Sample Session
The Sample Session program is a one-time try at riding the velodrome for those excited about the track and who simply have to try it once. Riders will get some safety and skill instruction then get on the track. It's recommended that you wear sports clothes. Completing a sample ride does not certify a rider to ride any other sessions at the velodrome. The sample ride program is by appointment only. All equipment is provided, but riders should bring pedals, shoes, and helmets if they have them. Contact Event Center Manager-Adam Duvendeck at aduvendeck@homedepotcenter.com.
