Junior Clinic

The Brunswick Cycling Club Junior Clinic was established by the late Henry Hill around 1948. It provides junior riders with the environment to learn the art of track racing, and best of all it's a whole lot of fun.

The Clinic program aims to make learning to ride on a velodrome fun, safe and enjoyable for girls and boys. Through weekly sessions over summer, and monthly during winter, participants will learn bike skills in an exciting, supportive and social environment. It is suitable for children below the age of 16 who can confidently ride without training wheels.
