Riders wishing to attend this session should have some experience of riding in a group, and have the confidence to follow a wheel for a prolonged period, as this will form the basis for most activities. Each session is planned with an overall aim of developing a rider’s confidence, riding in a group dynamic as well as developing fitness.
There are NO changing facilities available during this time. Riders should arrive already changed and be in the track centre ready to start at 8:55am, respecting social-distancing. Helmets and gloves/mitts are compulsory in order to take part in the session – no helmet, no ride. Riders should dress in appropriate clothing for the conditions (no bare legs in sub 5 degrees please). If in doubt, it’s always better to dress in too much clothing. Being able to take layers off is preferable to not have anything to put on if it gets cold.
Due to coronavirus restrictions, coaches are unable to help in fixing equipment. Please ensure that yours and/or your child’s bike is in good working order before your arrival at the track. Bikes must have working front and rear brakes, gears, and tyres well pumped up. It is expected that riders will be self sufficient during each session, this means bringing a spare inner tube, tyre levers and pump to fix any punctures which may occur, and a multi-tool if you have one. The bike shed will not be open during any session.
Minimum age: 12 years old.
Numbers are limited to 22 (2 coaches).
