South Pennine hold a 6 weekly coached Track Session at Derby Velodrome..
If you are not sure you can always come along one night as a spectator – it costs nothing but don‘t be nervous about coming and having a go! These sessions are not races. They are about giving you a new experience – one we hope you will enjoy!
Having booked a place on the session beforehand, please arrive and be ready for the briefing at 7:45 pm (which is usually held in the ‘Club Room’) so we can be on the track at 8:00 pm. Riders should ideally wear at least two layers of clothing (cycling top plus under garment) for added protection. You also need to wear helmet and track mitts.
The sessions cost £20 if you pay in advance (within 5 days of the session). You are now able to pay for future sessions via bank transfer (Sort Code 09-01-29 Account number 10184321). When you make a payment by this method please include in the REFERENCE the name of the rider(s) and the month the payment is for.
As these sessions are very popular, payment in advance is the only way you can ensure your place. Riders who have paid take precedence over riders who still owe. Before you do pay for future sessions please can you book onto the session by emailing Nigel Briggs or at the previous session.
Riders with their own track bikes should use a gear no bigger than 88 inches please.
For the dates of our future sessions check on our Facebook page (post Covid reopening, the velodrome's hiring policy has changed and these are now every 6 weeks.
