SCRL track league starts soon

We are excited about the start of SCRL track league next week (17th April), especially given how many of our younger riders have been enthusiastically learning track bike skills to get accredited recently, we can’t wait to see you there!

Well done to Mason Law, Jack Harris, Bibi Hibbard, Thomas Dewey and Sebastian Dorman who all passed their track accreditation last weekend.

There will be a further accreditation session on Saturday 20th, weather permitting, for those at Inner and Outer Ring who have completed the first of their two accreditation sessions and still need to complete a further session in order to pass.

Don’t worry about missing the first few weeks of the league if you still need to complete accreditation, you can start at any point between April and August!

How to register for SCRL

You need to register for the season on RiderHQ. Only do this if you have passed track accreditation. The SCRL team have access to the PPYCC Accreditation list so when you register for SCRL, they will check for your name on our list.

Once registered for the season you then just register in advance each week by MONDAY NIGHT, again via RiderHQ. J

Please follow the instructions at

Borrowing track bikes

PPYCC has track bikes in three wheel sizes: 24 inch, 650C (26 inches) and 700C (27 inches). We have plenty of 650C and 700C bikes so once you have completed accreditation, if you are planning to race SCRL regularly then you can take a bike home for the season which will both save time with bike fits each week. We only have a few 24 inch bikes though, so these need to be kept at the track.

As usual, no charge applies for bike loans but you are responsible for general maintenance of the bike and keeping it in good working order, replacing consumables like bar tape and tyres when needed.

Volunteer while cheering on your rider

SCRL relies on volunteers to keep running and you do not need any cycling knowledge at all for key roles such as marshalling. Please keep the league alive by helping out where you can, as if not enough people volunteer then racing will get cancelled that week.
