Important info for Inner Ring track session

We are still hoping to run track bike sessions this weekend, if it remains dry.

IMPORTANT information for Inner Ring parents

All Inner Ring riders should turn up as normal at 8.45am with their regular bike. From 9am we will have one of the three Inner Ring groups (probably about 10-12 riders) spending an hour on the club’s track bikes under the guidance of a specialist track coach, this group can then return to their regular bikes to join in the final race at 10am with the rest of the group. The other two groups will do activities on their normal bikes for the whole session.

If your Inner Ring rider would like to take part in the SCRL Wednesday track league starting in April, they should be in the track group. Please email by end of Thursday if your child would like to be in this group, so that we know numbers in advance.

Priority when assigning track bikes to Inner Ring riders on Saturday will be given to those wishing to race at track league, those who have not raced at track league before (who therefore need track accreditation), and those whose names we received in advance.

Inner Ring track bikes will be setup with flat pedals and toe clips with straps, no pedal changes will be allowed so please bring trainers along if you use clipless pedals on your road bike.

NOTE: Riders who are aged 11 or above and who raced at track league last season are welcome to attend the Outer Ring track session at 10.30 instead, to get a full 90 minute session of track drills and coach-led racing.

Weather dependent

Track cycling is weather dependent at Preston Park, so if the conditions are very damp or wet, we cannot use track bikes and an update will be posted on the website prior to the session, 8am on the day at latest. Therefore please do check the website for the latest information on the morning before leaving for the session.
