No. If it's Friday nights, it's Simon Quick's people, I think.

You can, within reason do your own thing if you have your own plan, or
you can mix it in with the rest - I do a bit of both.

cooorr nice... I want in... but I'm still 6 months off my masters 1 license.

They're easy to smoke out, too :)

yep.. that answers the question ;-)

so I gather your still not a trackie??? You're doing a lot of sooking, for a roadie, about how little the track gets used ;-P

Spose I was coming more from a cyclist perspective. I've found it not only buckets of fun, but a great way to mix up my training. Last winter on any given Sunday Masters training sesh, there was anywhere between 2 to 10 with the norm being 6ish. I guess me thinking it great doesn't mean others do. As I said, best kept secret:D
Though I do think the time table is a bit whack too with all the "DISC AVAILABLE FOR CONTRACTED HIRE" over the weekend. Most people work during the week and I would have thought find it hard to use it during the 9-5 week day "CASUAL USERS" block.

It is a great resource Jaywoo, but if an assessment of use is based on Sunday morning use only, then that's a very limited perspective. Contracted hire means groups, not individual users. Get a group together and you can hire it. Southern Vets recently did that on a Sunday evening. It's open to all users.

Some clubs have bikes you can borrow. And, you can hire bikes from
DISC if necessary too.

And old steel clunker track bikes are around $500 or so.

Do the BBN Aust-day madison first :) See if you can beat these two :

Or these two :

Careful though, you may end up like this :
