At Ed Rudolph Velodrome (also known as the Northbrook Velodrome), we specialize in the all-around experience for USA Cyclingsanctioned riding. We have a strong tradition of beginner-friendly (and highly skilled) weekly clinics, we host the Illinois State Track Championships, and we consistently have the highest attendance of most other tracks in the country at our weekly racing series. We are very proud of these programs and would love for you to join us in obtaining the necessary credits and experience to race our Thursday night program and beyond.
Wanna ride or race? Let’s get some basics outta the way.
Firstly, you need a track bike. Essentially, a track bike consists of:

  • a single speed, fixed gear -- the gear is fixed and does not allow the rider to “freewheel” or coast
  • no brakes -- riders apply backward pressure to the pedals to slow the bike
  • drop bars with bar tape and bar plugs
  • We have bikes for loan if you do not yet own your own track bike. You must provide your own pedals and helmet.

Secondly, you will need to protect your brain! A helmet is always required when on the track.

  • Foot retention is imperative. Most riders use clipless pedals.
  • Proper cycling clothing.
