Equipment & Clothing Guidance

Hard Shell helmets must be worn whenever you are using the Bournemouth Velodrome facility.

  • Ensure that shoe laces and trouser bottoms are tucked in so they cannot come into contact with your chain.
  • Remove any baggy and flapping clothing (hoods, scarves, coats etc.) since they also pose a risk of getting caught in something.
  • For introduction to cycling sessions no specific cycling clothing is needed.

Track Cycling

  • When taking up track cycling the coaches will advise on suitable wear to increase aerodynamic advantages, and reduce the chance of scrapes or injuries.
