Shepparton Cycling Club president Edward Dalle Nogare with one of the 10 bikes the club has bought with funds from Greater Shepparton City Council.
The Shepparton Cycling Club is hoping an additional 10 track bikes will encourage more people to join the association.
The club received a $5000 grant from Greater Shepparton City Council’s Our Sporting Future funding program.
Shepparton Cycling Club president Edward Dalle Nogare said the club was able to secure the funds after applying to the fund to buy the new bikes.
‘‘The club applied for a grant through Our Sporting Future Program and we received $5000, which has allowed us to buy 10 new velodrome bikes,’’ Dalle Nogare said.
‘‘It’s great because a lot of the bikes we had there previously were past their used-by date and to now have additional bikes on hand will really help the club.’’
Dalle Nogare said the club would be able to cater for more cyclists and potential members that were looking to race at the track.
‘‘They will be able to use the bikes until they can use their own, or are ready to, and it really reduces the cost of getting into the sport,’’ Dalle Nogare said.
‘‘We can get people going from age six to adults up to six-feet tall.
‘‘Having the bikes there is great and it reduces what is needed to get into cycling in the first place, and they can use the bikes for free and all the safety equipment.’’
‘‘We can also get women and children a free first-year licence, so they can get riding for nothing.’’
Training is every Monday from 4.30
