The NCVA Monthly Board Meetings in 2000
The board meets every 3rd Thursday of each month, in Milpitas. The meetings are at Adaptec, Inc. .Adaptec is located at 801 S.Milpitas Blvd.. S. Milpitas Blvd. is located in the middle of 880 and 680 (west and east) and 237 (aka Calaveras Blvd.) and Montague (aka Landess off 680) (north and south). The meetings will begin promptly at 7:00 pm, with minutes and agenda items sent to hellyer@cyclery.com monthly. Since there are several Adaptec buildings, please give yourself ample time to get to the building the first time. Our meeting room is through the back door of 801, so park near the sand volleyball courts, and knock on the window if you are late. If you can not make these meetings, please let us hear your ideas.

The cost of riding on the track for training is $5.00 to ride the velodrome each day you use it. This pays for the insurance the county requires in order to keep it open.

After three uses of the track the rider must purchase a track permit as required by the county. The cost is $25.00 for adults and $15.00 for juniors. You will need to pay $4.00 dollars each time you drive your car into Hellyer County Park, or pay a $50.00 per year County parking permit (this parking permit will allow you into all other County Parks that charge an entrance fee). According to the rangers, they will give you a permit for each car you have. The only other option is to park your car outside Hellyer Park and walk or ride in.

Rain cancels all track sessions.

All open training sessions are open to all riders. The supervisor at any training session has the responsibility to make sure that the session is held in a safe manner, and that all riders in any given session can ride on the track together safely. In addition the scheduled session for any time frame has precedent over any unscheduled session.

*Note the calendar is subject to change*
when we receive changes we will post updated versions as soon as possible.

Directions to the Track
Getting to the Hellyer Park Velodrome is easy. The track is located just off of Highway 101 at the Hellyer Ave. exit. From the 680/280/101 interchange take 101 south for 5 miles to the Hellyer Ave exit. At the bottom of the off-ramp turn right. At the stop sign go straight into Hellyer Park and follow the signs to the velodrome. The spectator gate is located on the south end of the velodrome ( from the parking lot walk counter clock-wise around the track to get to the gate). The Santa Clara County Parks Dept. charges a $3 vehicle entrance fee to get into the park.
