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.
This year we want to encourage you to help your DLV community by volunteering one or two race nights a season to be a volunteer official, scorer, lap counter or timer during our regular weekly racing as well as Pro Race, State Champs as well as other event days. Volunteers will receive 4 ROY points for each volunteer session but will NOT be able to race that night. The more people that know and understand these positions, the better and stronger our velodrome community is.

Our Youth Cycling League starts next week on Monday. This year we are excited to announce that we will be creating a Advanced sessions for our more accomplished young riders. This speaks volumes about the success of the program the last few years and continuing on with our goal of introducing kids to the sport of track cycling. Please Read our changes carefully below:

5:30pm till 6:30pm for Beginner's or Young Riders 8-12yo
6:30pm till 7:30 for Intermediate Riders
New For 2017:
On Thursday's only (starting next week) from 7:30 to 8:30 we'll have Advanced Riders identified by YCL Coaches meeting timed criteria (among others) of a 47 second 500 meter TT time. Riders please check your 500 times at our results page or contact Jackie or Rob if you are unsure about which class you should be in.
All riders riding in Advanced YCL will be invited to ride on Pursuit and Sprint Nights on alternating Tuesday's. All other Advanced Class riders ages 14 and up are encouraged to take the Adult Certification Class and begin racing in the adult categories as well. No riders under 14yo are allowed to participate in mass start racing. There will be no Advanced YCL class on Monday's and we ask that these riders not attend unless requested by coaches to be a mentor to the lower classes.
It's not raining yet, but the 30+mph winds have created enough of a hazard that we are canceling Winter Training for 3/1. Our alternate training ride is 7p.m. on the Watt Bikes at Hotlanta Yoga at 439 Edgewood Ave. Show up a little early to get the bike set up and pedals swapped if you aren't riding Look Keo or SPD mountain cleats (SPD-SLs work also we are told) Bring your Garmin/Data Recording Device or download the Watt Bike app to capture all your kilojoules. Cost is $10.
There will be no winter training tonight because of ongoing track repair and unsafe hazards on the track. There will be no programming until the current hazard is fixed. We will have a small work party this Saturday February 25th. and we need 6 people to finish up these repairs. Don't assume others have contacted the track about helping, unless you have heard from Rob otherwise, help is still needed. 404-594-1789 [email protected]
