Ever thought about giving bike racing a try? There's no time like the present, or more specifically, this coming Monday, May 11th!

Cambridge Bicycle and New England Velodrome</a> are hosting a seminar on Beginning Track Racing this coming Monday, May 11th at the Livable Streets Alliance</a> space in Cambridge. This seminar will be designed for those who have little or no racing experience and it is free and open to all ages.

There will be a short presentation on the history of bicycle track racing, including some great photos and videos. Tony Eberhardt, director of the New England Velodrome and New England cycling legend Dick Ring will be on hand to explain the different types of races that happen on a track, or "velodrome", and discuss the racing schedule for this summer. We will also discuss ride share options for getting to the track, and have a question and answer session with other experienced track racers.

There will be door prizes which include free passes to the track, hats, t-shirts, etc. So tell your friends and come get in on the fun!!
