The Forest City Velodrome (FCV) in London, Ontario, in Canda, will be supporting a developmental program to assist athletic women between ages 15 and 25. No prior cycling experience is required. Along with the program come free instruction, track bike rentals, and the cost of start up equipment.
Interested individuals or groups will come to FCV on an ongoing basis to train, race, and eventually compete at the provincial and national levels. Individual training programs will be integrated with other activities the athletes are involved with, accommodating school and work commitments.
Subsequent benefits will include ongoing training and support and assistance attending the Canadian National Track Championships and competitive events at other tracks. Squad members will be asked to purchase an FCV student membership and participate in either two training sessions per week or one training session and one race night, on an ongoing basis. A three week trial period of Saturday afternoon rides is open to interested rider prior to making any commitment.
The first weekend camp is scheduled for Saturday, October 13 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm, and will wrap up on Sunday, October 14 from 9:30 am - 1:00 pm. All camp costs are supported by the FCV and the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
