Some questions about Dick Lane Vdrome - Atl

I might just give em a call anyway on Monday, but....


The fifty dollar "summer training fee", would that apply to each of us coming up for a weekend? Seems rather prohibitive if so.

Saturday training hours = 8 to 12 am. And then they're... closed after that? Nothing on Sunday?


It seems like if we (or anyone) wanted to do a few days there near a weekend, we'd be able to watch some stuff Friday night and pay at least fifty bones to ride for a few hours Saturday morning.

I feel like I'm missing something. Any help?

So you are all warned. This year we will be very strict with passes and training. We will be putting out a payment box for your signed release waivers and payment for whatever you are paying for. Please put your name on the envelope, and enclose payment and waivers, then put it in the box! Season Pass holders will get membership passes. Please bring them at all times.

Please be understanding to what we are trying to do. We all want the velodrome to be taken to the next level of performance and we can only to it with your help and cooperation. We have hired a mechanic/bike room manager for the year and we still have a lot of rebuilding to do. Every time you don't pay, your are basically cheating yourself out of a better facility in the future.

If you get caught training or racing without paying you will be asked to leave and you will be required to purchase the DLV One Pass to be allowed back on to the track. No exceptions!</i></a>

Hi, thanks for that blazingly unhelpful post! = ) I saw all of that, so maybe I'll try again.


- Are they open at all Saturday afternoons? Sundays looks totally closed.

Summer Training Insurance - $50 - If you plan on training at the track any night other than Wednesday night you must pay for the Summer Training Insurance Pass
I saw the ten dollar Wednesday thing, but that doesn't do us much good. The fifty dollar thing makes sense for locals, but for a weekend trip its a bit much. Do they consider "training" anything that isn't a race?

I had some equally helpless attempts at gettig info in another post. Best I got is

"Hi all,

It appears that there is some confusion re policies, costs and new rider requirements at the velodrome.

Our track is run managed by volunteer riders and we all try hard to make it accessible and affordable for everyone including out-of-state riders.

A couple of things right off the bat: If you have been track certified at another velodrome, going through the new rider course will probably not be required. Otherwise, going through a new rider session is mandatory. Please understand that this is for the safety of everyone.

If you have any questions about the track, please email me at:

brian@savedlv.org"

and

"The assumption that it will cost an out-of-town rider $50.00 for a one day training session at the DLV is not correct.

Please note the detailed list of fees on the DLV web site
http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com"

Appparently DLV has put up a website that is the holy grail of pricing, but no one is willing to answer specific questions about Friday hours, Sunday hours, Saturday afternoons, and we can take advantage of the $5.00 single day training pass.
