Starts this Wednesday January 11th and continues through to the Wednesday before the season starts.
Things to know:
If the Forecast Temperature at 6p.m. will be 40* or lower training will be canceled for that night. This is the only exception to the DLV Weather rules in using a forecast. We may amend this if it looks warmer than forecast that day.
Training will run from 7:00-8:30 or until we get too cold and need to call it a night.
If enough riders show up we will have organized training sessions. Otherwise open track.
All riders are required to have taken a certification class at DLV or equivalent.
Please always check the website and social media pages when in doubt about whether any programming is happening for that night.
Hope everybody enjoyed their Turkey Day!

With the last day of Youth Cycling League behind us, the 2016 DLV Season has finally drawn to a close.
Throughout the next couple of months there will be no regular maintenance of the track facility. This means there will probably be leaves, sticks, acorns, wildlife and a variety of other potential obstacles on the track. Also, some projects on the track surface itself may be taking place.
So, be careful, leaves are slippery, don't ride on the track in the rain, or at night (yes, we see your instagram posts) and come out and help us make the track look awesome on November 12th. We'll get the track going again in January.
Since we didn't reach our required threshold for participation last week, our final Beginner's Session of October is cancelled this week. Riders with any remaining upgrade requirements will have to complete those in the Spring once our season begins. Thanks to all who came out!
Get a jump start on winning the 2017 Ride of The Year prize. Fall Workday Dates are November 12th and December 3rd. We'll get started at about 9:00a.m. and wrap up around 1p.m.
List of tasks to be posted soon.
Reminder: No Youth Cycling or Womens Tonight due to Columbus Day.
Reminder: Tonight starts October Beginner Series. Please be ready to ride at 6:30. You must be signed in, have your number pinned and rental bike acquired. Once we start it will be very disruptive to the session if anyone shows up after 6:30 looking to do all these things. So please plan ahead. If you already have a cloth number please bring it with you. If you don't you will be assigned one that you will use each night. Replacement numbers are $5.
If you have taken our Beginner's Class this year and still need a few points to move up to Wednesday Night racing, or just got certified and need some experience the October Beginner's Series is for you.
We will start at 6:30p.m. with warm-up and skills drills and then we will have three varying mass start races to help you understand the different kid of events that will be run at the DLV. Expect to finish around 8p.m.
There will be a field threshold to hit, so talk it up on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat. If we don't get more than 5 riders on the first evening the rest of the series will not move forward.
If you aren't sure how many points you have, or how to upgrade, please review this handy article here: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/racingcategories.html
Due to weather Sprint Night for tonight is cancelled. See you tomorrow for Directors night.
Beginner's Class Make Up Date for the September session will be this Sunday, October 2nd starting at 10a.m.
The beginner's class for Sunday 9/18 is cancelled. The make-up date is TBA.
We are being asked to ask all of our velodrome users, supporters and patrons to re-enroll in Kroger Community Rewards.
If you haven't signed up yet, this is the perfect opportunity to.
For each time you shop at Kroger, they will donate a small percent of your shopping total to the DLV. It's probably the easiest way to participate in raising funds for the DLV.
To sign up:
Go to: krogercommunityrewards.com
Click Enroll. It may ask you update or add your information such as your Kroger Plus Card Number.
After you've updated your personal info it will ask for the organization you wish to support.
Type in our org number: 69847
That's it! Now you can shop like the DLV Champ that you are and support us in the process.
We have a date change to our Record Day. We will be moving from Sunday October 2nd to Saturday October 1st. Please note this on your calendars and plans. There are still a handful of time slots to sign up for.
