Velodrome training session - Sunday 28th Sept - 11am - 1pm

Postby Andy F » Wed Sep 10, 2008 12:44 pm

I have managed to get a last minute cancellation for the velodrome, so if you fancy spicing up your bike training this winter why not come along and give it a go!!

The track is booked for a 2 hour fully coached session and is open to members and their friends of all abilities. Provisions will be made for riders that want to be assessed for their "pink slips" which is the first part of the velodrome accreditation scheme. Accreditation is required if you want to go on and do "Structured Quality Training" sessions (SQT's) at the velodrome and ride in the track leagues that take place throughout the winter.

Based on 21 people taking part the cost will be:

£10 if you have your own track bike and shoes (with Look Delta cleats)
£19.30 if you need to hire a bike
£22.80 if you need to hire a bike and shoes

Reserving your place and payment.

If you would like to come along please add your name to this thread and your height if you need to hire a bike.

No money needs to be paid in advance, but anyone that puts their name down and doesn't turn up may be charged.

When you arrive at the track please pay the receptionist for bike and shoe hire and I will take £10 off you in the centre of the track to cover the track hire and coaches fees.

I think this is the 5th or 6th session that I've organised and typical reactions from first timers tend to be along the lines of "....scary to begin with, but great fun once you get going!!"

Look forward to seeing you there.

Stick my name down!

Bike required - I'm 6ft1

I have shoes, with Look cleats, but not Delta, so I guess i'll need shoes too - size 10.

Cheers for organising - wanted to go to the sessions in June, but was away and/or at SQ Aquathlon...
