Forest City Velodrome London Ontario

2007 - 2008 Women's Development Program

The Forest City Velodrome in London, Ontario has secured special funding to assist in the development of a squad of up to 8 elite women track cyclists. The program is aimed at athletic women, ages 15 - 25, who may not have previously been involved in cycling. Interested individuals or groups would come to FCV on an ongoing basis to train, race, and eventually compete at the Provincial and National levels.

Initial benefits of the program include free instruction and track bike rentals, and the cost of start up equipment. Individual training programs would be integrated with other activities the athletes are involved with, accommodating school and work commitments.

Subsequent benefits include ongoing training and support and assistance attending the Canadian National Track Championships and competitive events at other tracks. Squad members would be asked to purchase an FCV student membership and participate in either 2 FCV training sessions per week or one training session and one race night, on an ongoing basis. Prospective squad members are welcome to come to the velodrome Saturday afternoons at 3pm and try out track bicycling for up to 3-weeks prior to making a commitment.

Startup funding becomes available upon purchase of FCV membership.

The first weekend camp is scheduled for Saturday night October 13th from 6pm - 9pm, and will wrap up on Sunday October 14th 9:30am - 1pm. All camp costs are supported by the Forest City Velodrome and the Ontario Trillium Foundation
