Maple Bay – Cancelled

24 Jul

Unfortunately the Maple Bay Road July 27th is cancelled. The principle organizers and many of the volunteers from both teams are away. We have explored many options for other to take the lead and to find volunteers, but simply don’t have the manpower to put in the race.

Remaining Races

22 Jul

It has just been noted that this Wednesday’s Velodrome VCL (July 24th) is missing from the Schedule posted on this site (although, it does properly show on the IRC site). Registration an open-track starts of 6:00PM, with racing starting around 6:30.

Saturday’s Maple Bay RR is still uncertain – final status will be conveyed by tomorrow evening, we apologize for the late notice and confusion.

Lastly, Sunday marks the return of the Observatory Hill Climb – come out and test your legs against the relatively inoffensive grade. It would be great to have a huge turnout for the return of this popular cycling training location. Come out and show your respects and appreciation for the venue operators!!

Wednesday May 22nd – Velodrome

21 May

This coming Wednesday May 22nd is GVVA + Victoria Cycling League (VCL) race night. For VCL riders who did not get a chance to take a Learn-to-Ride session and don’t want to miss out on the action / points, please show up by 5pm at Westshore Velodrome on Wednesday and we’ll get you up to speed with a “Track 101” session so you too can partake in the races that evening! We’ll sort bikes out and go through some basics between 5-530pm and then get on the track at 530pm as the venue is booked until then. Hope to see you out there this Wednesday!

2019 Race Schedule

21 Feb

*** April 6th Western Speedway – Youth Races begin at 12-noon, with the VCL Races starting around 2:00PM (1-hour earlier than noted in the document below).

**April 23rd Sidney TT – Start Time 6:30, not 7:00 as listed below.

Without further adieu, here is the mostly final version of the 2019 VCL Race Schedule. We have a few things that still require final confirmation, but, we are mostly there. We have made note in the schedule of some key local events, however, the list of races is not exhaustive.

To come are details on the 2019 Season Launch / 2018 Season Wrap Party. Expect more news on this in the coming weeks.

You will notice the return of the Observatory Hill Climb, we are very happy to have this back on the calendar – we hope to see a large contingent of racers (large and small 😉 ).

Also, note the return of Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit, as well as the AirForce Crit, out at 443 Squadron – 12 Wing facility. Both very exciting in their own right.

Hopefully you are already into your 2019 training program, and the ill effects of the off-season and Snowmaggedon2019 are being addressed and worked-off.

See you soon,

2019 VCL Schedule


Schedule Change – Observatory Cancelled/Delayed

18 Jul

Due to circumstances beyond our control, next weekend’s Observatory Hill-Climb has been cancelled. A new transformer is being installed on the mountain that weekend, and we were unable to coordinate an alternate date. Communication with management has been reestablished, after years off the schedule, and the event will return, just not right now.

Stay tuned, perhaps we will be able to swing something later in the summer, or in the fall as a one-off pain cave event.

In the meantime, for those pain-seekers, we will see you tonight at Newton Heights!!


Speedway May 16th – Start Time

16 May

Please note – tonight’s race will start at 6:00 PM, as have all previous races. It was slated to begin at 6:30, but, the organizers decided to remain with the earlier start. Sorry for any inconvenience.
