We meet at Whitton Sports & Community Centre, Whitton Church Lane, Ipswich IP1 6LW
Our Cycle Speedway track is at the back of Whitton Sports Centre’s land, near the all-weather football pitches. Our club house serves drinks and snacks.
Parking, changing and toilets are at the Sports Centre.
We meet for training from February to November, weather permitting. The competitive season runs from March to October.
- Junior riders, Tuesday 6:30pm – 7:30pm
- Senior riders’ training: Tuesday 7:30pm – 9pm, ad-hoc on Thursday evenings
Please contact us for group sessions – your club, youth group, place of work, school, friends, etc. We can include you in sessions or create a session (and race meeting!) for larger groups.
We can also run specific sessions for women and girls, subject to demand.
What do I need?
Riders should be covered from the neck downwards. This includes long fingered gloves.
Riders need a helmet without a peak. We have some loan helmets and gloves for new riders.
Riders at training sessions mostly wear old trainers, track suit bottoms or goalkeepers leggings, and any long sleeved shirt. If you go on to race you’ll need a club shirt, these are around £30.
We have loan bikes for 4 year olds up to adults. These are free to use. Members may also borrow bikes for competitive events.
What does it cost?
Your first 2 training sessions are free.
Training sessions cost £2.00 for non-members
Annual Eagles membership
… is £20 for a Senior rider or £10 for a Junior rider. We encourage a £40 per rider donation towards track maintenance, though we’re understanding if you donate less.
British Cycling membership
Club members also need British Cycling membership for competition, described on the British Cycling web site. Your first year has £26 off if you join with the code “NEWCMRA” and list your club as “Ipswich CSC”
The Provisional race license that comes with Bronze Race membership covers all racing apart from the British Individual Championships (British Cycling rule S.9), for which you’ll need Silver or Gold membership. Cycle Speedway does not require the ‘full race license’, just Race membership.
