Welcome to the Vertex:Ride West Riding Track League

The West Riding Track League is a summer Track Cycling league which takes place on Monday evenings in Roundhay Park, Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Racing takes place on a grass-surfaced oval and an evening’s racing will typically include several races each for a wide range of age categories, including under-12s.

Under 12s can ride any bike in good working order, provided it has brakes. Over 12s and adults ride a more traditional “fixed wheel” Track bike with no brakes, and a “fixed” gear so the bike can’t freewheel – riders control the speed of the bike by applying pressure to the pedals.

You need to Register for the League to ride. Registration for 2015 will re-open in March 2015 – When we reach a maximum number of riders, we will close registrations and start a waiting list. To ensure your place – pre register when we re-open registration in march. See Registration…

All riders need to have tyres with a grippy tread pattern, as slicks aren’t allowed to be used for grass track. Light cyclo-cross tyres are perhaps the best. The league has a few bikes it can lend to newcomers on a first come basis.
