Track bikes can be hired from reception upon arrival.

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)
