Youth Grass Track

What is Grass Track?

Grass track is ideally suited to entry level youth racing. It is fun and fast! Events are organised on a flat field, much like a school running track and the races are short and exciting.

The main characteristic of this discipline is that you ride a fixed-gear bike like in a velodrome – the chances are you will never have done this before, but it is very addictive and intense!

What you’ll need to get started

A helmet

A sense of adventure!


The Monday night summer grass track sessions are held at Boadicea Way Sport Centre. These typically run from the end of May to the end of August from 1830-2000. All you need is clothes suitable for riding in and a helmet if you have one – we will supply the fixed-wheel bikes on the night!

UPDATE: Unfortunately it has not been possible to run these sessions this year but we plan to start them again in 2022!


We would recommend joining the Colchester Rovers Youth facebook page. This is often the best and easiest place to get up-to-the-minute information on what’s going on.

You can also email for more information on youth coaching.
