Free Youth and Junior cycle Training at the Encino Velodrome

July 21st, 2011 Comments off

Joe attended the free Youth & Junior Training class today at the Encino Velodrome. They are held every Thursday evening at 530pm.

He got some great one-on-one time with the coaches and was up and riding the big track for the last hour or so of the session. Yet another great FREE thing to do with your kids in LA.

These are Fixed Gear (or fixie) bikes, so they are quite a bit different from your typical street bike.

Joe says, “It was the best time I have had in while. It was fun!”

Bring a good helmet. Bikes are provided for the Junior Sessions.
