The Derby Velodrome is on our doorstep and a fantastic facility. Some members are already accredited to ride/race there with others going through the accreditation process at the present time. This involves four sessions, level 1 to 4 and a total of six hours riding (2 x 1hr, 2 x 2hrs). So if you like the idea of riding on the track in warm, dry and traffic free conditions with no wind or hills, you need to get accredited first – register and book on www.derbyarena.co.uk/cycling
I’ve looked into hiring the track for a club session, but it’s quite expensive (£138 for two hours) and it’s only available for us to hire between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, i.e. no evening or weekend slots. Bike hire at £12 for two hours in addition. Not exactly convenient if work gets in the way!
However, Sarah Maitland and Beeston CC have hired the track on 17/2/2017 between 7am and 9am to do a Level 3 accreditation. They have invited us along with 10 places available. Al Val and I have already agreed to go. Would you like to join us? Ideally you should have already completed level 1 & 2, so you can take part in the level 3 training. However, if you just fancy having a go round, will keep out of the way of others on the training and do as the coach says, then come along. It’s only £15 (bargain) plus bike hire if needed.
You need to email to let him know you’re interested. Payment by BACS – Richard will provide bank details.

Also, if you’d be interested in us hiring the track during the week, let me know this was well.
