The Track is CLOSED until further notice. We are washing and painting the track surface and the work will continue (weather permitting) until the work is completed. The workday on Saturday is still happening as we will be patching the track surface between washing and painting (and could use help doing so, please come out). This means there is no YCL, or other programming happening.
We'll put the finishing touches on some on going projects and we'll need several folks to help our ongoing patching of the track surface. It's finally warm enough to patch If you still need a workday for your discount this will absolutely be your last chance to do so. Needless to say you also receive points for the ever competitive Rider of The Year competition!
Just a reminder, our first beginner's class of the year is this Saturday and Sunday. If you are interested in being ready to go as soon as we open our gates for 2016 this is the fastest way to get ON TRACK! http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/beginnerprogram.html
The track will be closed from this Saturday March 4th until Winter Training of Next Week for Apron Repair. This is a full shut down of the facility and all gates will be locked. Please adjust your training plans accordingly and share this with others as there will absolutely be no riding during this time.

Due to the continued afternoon showers and High Wind Advisory we are cancelling Winter Training For Tonight 2-24-2016
Season passes for 2016 are now available at http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/store.html
This year, for anyone who purchases a One-Pass before April 1st we will include One(1) Season Spectator Pass to the Pro Race Series.
We are going to reserve race numbers in a similar manner to past years. If two people reserve the same number, preference will stay with the person who had that number last year, as long as they elect to reserve that number again, and do so before April 1st. At that time, it'll be a free-for-all first-come-first served. So get your submission on in the form below, and on the April 1st we'll let folks know if they will need to choose a different number that may have been reserved by a current number holder. Reservations are available for any number from 3-200!!
Lastly, anyone who reserves a number but does not pay for their One Pass or Weekly-Training pass by April 1st will forfeit that number. If you plan on paying as you go weekly please wait to pick your number until your first race night.
If form is not visible to you please use this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Ea5gyx26yuPh3Rdy0vQBpuUEo_7OLjUg2gpg1Cd...
