Rollers - If any one of you have rollers that you are not planning to use for the next few weeks, could you please bring them to the track and leave them on the infield? They would be on loan to help participants in our planned, new "Skills & Drills" session improve their riding skills.

Good News: The FCVA is pleased to announce that Velodrome Membership Fees will remain unchanged for the 2007-2008 Riding Season. In October we will be expanding the hours of operation and getting riders to participate in Recreational Programs at the Velodrome. There will be increased time to ride & train during the fall & winter.
We will be reintroducing the out of town membership for riders who live more than 100 km from the Velodrome and only come to recreation rides. All racers who participate in Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday night training and racing will be required to purchase a full membership.
Please check the website for all updated membership information. On-line membership applications will be available soon at www.ForestCityVelodrome.ca
