Hunter Region Velodrome needs bikes

The Hunter Region Velodrome Trust (NSW, Australia) has developed a programme in light of the performances of Australian track cyclists at home and abroad, aiming to continue fostering talent at the grass roots level so that Australia's winning ways can continue.

Dennis Blunden, Chairman of the Trust, sent the call out for young riders interested in taking up track cycling one day per week after school - and the call was answered. It was answered so strongly that the supply of bikes available for use is nowhere near enough to ensure that all riders can get out on the track.

High school students attend weekly training sessions, aimed at developing skills and preparing them for races in the future. The only problem is that there are only 15 bikes for 40 entrants into the programme, and now the call for equipment has gone out. Any businesses or individuals who could donate bikes, sponsor the purchase of bikes or help in acquiring enough track bikes for this programme are asked to come forward.

Les Morgan, a member of the Trust's committee, can be emailed on lesmog@ceinternet.com.au, or alternatively, anyone interested can ring Dennis Blunden on +61 (0)2 4930 1393.
