The clinics will give teachers involved in Leadership or regular P.E. courses, SPOKE and North Shore Series coaches, and athletic directors an opportunity to see how beneficial the Burnaby Velodrome could be to your programs. The velodrome is the perfect alternative to traditional P.E. outings and school coaches can learn about the benefits the velodrome can provide their mtn. Bike teams. No competitive cycling background is necessary and all specialized equipment is supplied. All you need is a helmet, cycling shoes and pedals OR running shoes and appropriate clothing.
