If you can answer yes to these three questions then go on and prove it! Not to us but yourself!  How?
We are the Hellingly Lions Cycle Speedway Club and race at our circuit at Lower Dicker which is just half a mile north of the Boship Roundabout on the A22 (see the Contact page for directions). Our bikes are purpose built, have no brakes, no gears and dirt tyres. We race on an oval compacted shale track (as seen below) there are four riders in each heat and circle the track four times with most heats lasting no longer than 60 seconds, each rider can ride five times in a match (hence as above 'do you have five minutes to spare'). You think 60 seconds sounds easy? Cycle speedway is classed as 'sprint-cycling and the riders are 'flat-out' for those 60 seconds - so have a go!.

Pre season club practice commences in March (weather permitting) on a Sunday afternoon and in Season practice is Thursday evenings 6:00pm - 8:00 pm. Match meetings are Sundays with a start at 2:00 pm racing against teams from different counties around Southern England. You can check fixtures by clicking on the Fixtures Link above.

Do you still think you can ride a bike?
