Track Cycling in Australia

Victoria, to be more specific.

Just wondering how one goes about getting into Track Cycling down here?

Any half-decent clubs around? Is bike rental an option?

Cheers!

You're in Melbourne? Victoria on the whole is a bit of a mecca for track racing. So many tracks, so many great riders. BUT, I only know Sydney and Adelaide well. All I can say is, whereever you are, there'll be a track near you, and a good club.

Give Cycling Australia a call or email and I'm sure they'll point you in the right direction. http://www.cycling.org.au//AM/Template.cfm?Section=Home

I'm already a member of SKCC but as far as I know they don't do track.
