WHY IS RIDING ON THE TRACK FOR ME?

  • New & Beginner Riders: There will be no dogs, cars, and no ride where you are the last one in. Inside the big oval there is a separate “beginner friendly” quarter mile oval that will offer flat, slow/moderate speed riding. This is the place where you can get used to riding next to others, learn to ride in clips and practice your bike riding/handling skills.
  • Intermediate Riders: We’ll have designated lanes on the track that you can cruise at your own pace. If you think you can hang on to group of fast riders simply hop onto the back of the pace-line and hold on as long as you can.
  • Advanced & Racing Riders: The track will make an exciting venue for fast pace-line riding, interval training and time trial practice riding.  Pull as long and as hard as you want…when you drop most of us we’ll wait for you to come around again.

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO RIDE THE TRACK?
Here is a link to a video one of our club members shot of riding at the track.

HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST?
The track is FREE to all HBC members who have paid their annual dues.

DO I NEED TO BE AN HBC MEMBER TO RIDE ON THE TRACK?
Yes. For insurance purposes, everyone (including guests) will need to be a member….ONLY HBC MEMBERS WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE TRACK. There will be no exceptions and the latest HBC Membership list will be kept at the gate entrance.

DO NOT DELAY…RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP TODAY!

WILL THERE BE A Tuesday NIGHT RIDE LEADER?
We have a dedicated group that manages riders as they come in the gate, making sure that they understand and follow all rules. There are also folks on the track who make sure that everyone has a safe and pleasant riding experience.

WILL THERE BE RULES FOR RIDING ON THE TRACK?
Yes. The unique characteristics of track riding require that riders use it with considerable awareness and respect. We will be posting “Track Rules and Etiquette” on the HBC website as well as emailing them out to the membership before the first ride so you can get familiar with new track terminology and riding concepts. In addition, before every ride the Ride Leader will review the rules.
