Open Track Novice Sessions are scheduled regularly throughout the Summer on Saturdays. Details are posted on the What’s On  page. Please use the Novice Track Taster Session Request form to request a place on the next scheduled session.

Please be aware, this is an outdoor Velodrome and if the Track is wet, the session may not take place. Please keep an eye on the local weather forecast and check the website/Facebook/Twitter for news updates.

After successfully completing a Taster Track Session, (stage1) riders wishing to progress their Track skills, can then attend further 10:30am Novice Improver sessions over the next few weeks.

As novice riders improve their Track skills, they may be asked to move up to a more advanced 9am Improvers Session. These sessions are held regularly on Saturdays mornings throughout the summer, subject to weather conditions, coach cover and spaces being available. (Check with our Track Coaches after the session for more details.)
