The East Point Velodrome Association, Inc. (EPVA), is a volunteer-based 501©3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation, care and growth of the Dick Lane Velodrome, located in East Point, Georgia.
The EPVA conducts Youth Service Activities for the children at no cost to the city or state. These activities include our highly acclaimed Bicycle Little League (for kids 8-12), Summer Camps (kids 13-16), and Bicycle Safety Clinics. In addition, to raising bicycle safety awareness, these programs promote physical health and wellness, teamwork and individual growth through the sport and positive alternatives to drugs and gangs. These pioneering grass-root programs will hopefully ignite positive changes in kids and in competitive cycling in the U.S.
Masters & Beginners is Cancelled for Tuesday June 20th 2017
Due to the heavy winds associated with nearby storms and debris falling on the track we are canceling the remainder of YCL for tonight
It is really important that everyone pre-register for the State Champs this coming weekend. We will be trying to structure and place racers in 6 to 8 races and associate your bib number for those heats. Which really means if you wait till day of don't blame Barman for how long it takes to register and get the day started. But also, out of respect to your fellow trackies who did pre-register and not to hurt their preparations. Registration will close ON-TIME. 15 min before session starts. To sum up. Proper Pre-Registration Planning Prevents Poor Performance.
We are canceling YCL for tonight due to the widely scattered showers and track already being wet. See everyone Thursday!
Reminder to all trackies and aspiring trackies. National Velodrome Day is this weekend. We will be hosting track curious riders from 9a.m. until Noon on Saturday. If you've wanted to try out the track this is an opportunity to do so FREE OF CHARGE. Bikes are included, so ride on down, o drive on down. Bring your pedals and shoes and helmets. Or just bring your self and some athletic clothes. We provide the bikes and if you need to borrow a helmet we have some of those as well.
Right after from 1 to 4p.m. we are having our Beginner's class. So if you want to go ahead and get certified you can sign up for that.
With the weather looking a bit crazy for the weekend we may move the hours of the Beginner's Class around a bit to make sure we get that in. Potential have an all day class Saturday or start earlier Sunday. We are communicating with participants now. But with the Try the Track Day and the Beginner's Class the track will not be available for open training Saturday and potentially Sunday morning. We will try to post as we know. Please plan to make alternative plans to your training plans.
The race flier for the 2017 Dick Lane Velodrome Omnium on July 7th and 8th is now up! Please check it out.
Hi all, we were hoping to make tonight happen, but unfortunately the weather is just not cooperating.
Things are looking much better for tomorrow and we will have all categories again tomorrow. We will figure out a good blend to the races.
