Are spectators allowed at the SpeedDome?
Spectators are encouraged! The SpeedDome has the capacity for 1500 spectators. It is free to spectate training sessions and most racing events.
What do I wear?
Cycling bib shorts and a jersey is going to give you the most comfort, however, if you don’t have these things then shorts and a t-shirt with runners will be fine. If you use cycling shoes you are encouraged to bring them, along with your pedals if hiring a bike. Don’t forget to bring your helmet!
Can I bring my own bike?
Yes, as long as it is a track bike (no brakes, single fixed gear). If you do not own a track bike the venue offers bike hire for $10.
Is there anything else I should bring?
Water and snacks, there is a water fountain on the premises sometimes a tuck shop depending on the session. A change of clothes (especially in the colder months), a towel for wiping away perspiration and a change of shoes is also a good idea.
