Club cycling sessions at Chandler Velodrome

If you are new to track cycling in Brisbane, then you are probably wondering about the various cycling sessions held at Chandler Velodrome every week — what is the track cycling scene in Brisbane? Knowing what is on offer may influence your decision on which cycling club to join, as well as help you find sessions that suit your age, ability and fitness.

To ride on Chandler Velodrome, you will need to hold a Cycling Australia Racing Licence (Gold Membership) to compete in races, while a Recreational Licence (Silver Membership) is sufficient to participate in many of the training sessions. Several clubs also offer three month memberships, allowing you to try before signing up for the full twelve months membership.

You will need a track bike to ride on Chandler Velodrome. If you do not have your own track bike, hire bikes are available through Cycling Queensland (first two uses free, then $7 per session after that); some clubs also have their own hire bikes.
