Is the velodrome hard to ride

The velodrome at Unanderra is very easy to ride on. There is some banking on the turns but they still feel like you are riding on the flat.
Those who were worried before last years ride, ALL said it was easy - nothing to worry about

I am a road rider so why go to the velodrome to ride

There are 2 very good reasons to include Ride 4 Rotary at the velodrome in your riding plans

1) You are primarily supporting Youth at Risk in the Illawarra through an event that hands over all the donations to the charity. This year it is Southern Youth and Family Services.

2) It makes for a good ride to plan your road ride via the velodrome which may mean ride to the velodrome, ride around for 30 minutes and then continue your road trip. Last year we had riders do this and quite a few enjoyed the coffee, food and atmosphere they stayed longer and enjoyed themselves immensely.

So in a nutshell - you will help our youth and have fun also
