Iam going to the hellyer park velodrome next saturday 1/31/09

Me and my bro and my bro in law are already going. so if anyone is interested on experiencing track racing they have a clinic. to get informed and also bike on the track. the clinic is only on saturdays. parking is 6 bucks per car so carpool would be best. And also this place is located south snajose off the 101.

I have copy and pasted the info form their website.. for more info the website is:

Saturday Morning Beginner Training Sessions
