Track Novice Sessions 2022

Learn to ride on the banked track on a fixed wheeled bike at the Gosling Velodrome. Sessions delivered by British Cycling track qualified coaches.

These are progressive sessions open to novices of all ages – Youth, Junior & Senior, male & female. Minimum age 8 years. Entrants will be expected to book and try to complete all 4 stages within a scheduled block. To be accredited to ride on the track, riders must complete Stages 1-4.

All novice riders must complete each stage in order, ideally completed within an individual block of sessions. If a rider misses a stage, they can rebook the missed stage in the next block. Novice riders will need to be signed off by one of our Track coaches before they will be able to book onto the Saturday Improvers to continue their progress.

Track bikes are available to hire @£5 per session. The standard Pedal system is Look Keo. Hire bikes have Keo pedals fitted with Toe Clips & Straps fitted to pedal converters. Pedals on Hire bikes cannot be changed!
