Track bikes can be hired from reception upon arrival.

Sessions are aimed at novice, intermediate and advanced riders.

Just turn up on the night you are available to come along.

Please wear appropriate clothing for track cycling, in particular gloves, and glasses and warm clothing, as Calshot becomes very cold during the winter months.

Each session costs £10 per rider, not including track bike and shoe hire if required, this can be booked at reception on the night.

The pedals on the track bikes are Look Keo 2. So if your riders have a different style cleat on their shoes, these will not fit. ( you know all of this, but just worth reminding people who want to come along)

Bike Ball Demonstration – come and have a try !!

Fancy something a bit different? Well how about Bike Ball! The sport has been around for a while but is relatively unknown in the UK… until now! A crack German squad will be making a guest appearance as guests of Bournemouth BMX Club and Poole Wheelers Cycling Club on Friday 7 September at St Peter’s School, Bournemouth (BH6 4AD) from 6:30-8:30pm. Watch a demonstration, and have a go yourself. Bring along a bike (mountain or BMX best – FLAT pedals NO cleats), your cat-like balancing skills and a sense of humour! We will retire for refreshments to the Riverside Pub afterwards.
