Then try the velodromes in southern California. San Diego offers training races every Tuesday evening, Carson had one this past weekend (4/14) and holds another one on on May 12th, and Encino will hold an omnium for ALL categories on April 28th. Gates open at 1 pm, and racing starts at 2pm for the Women, Juniors and cat 5s. After 3:30 pm the 50+, cat 3/4, and cat 1/2 have their omniums. That's only about 5 hours from Hellyer.
