I am running a track session at the Newport Velodrome for the club on the 23rd of April which will run between 5 and 7 ( in the evening 🙂
Bikes will need to be hired unless you have a track bike of the Velodrome’s spec to ride. I am look to building a list of interested riders and get payments by the end of February.Currently I am looking at costs of £12 per rider for the track and coach payable to me and £10 ( ish ) for the bike paid by yourselves on the night so £22 in total.
The session will be split between novice and more experienced riders and will be a total of 2 hours with rest intervals between track time. For novice riders the coach will start you off gently riding along the bottom of the banking and practicing riding the Velodrome fixed gear bike and gradually build your skills and speed.
Kit you will need is:
Helmet without a peak
Top that covers at least your shoulders so no muscle vests !!
Shoes that have look Keo cleats or trainers.
Cycling shorts ( obviously )
A drink and some snacks for time when you are resting in between riding.
Get there about 30 mins before hand to pay for hire bike ( was £10 last year and assuming about that cost again ) and get changed.
Can all interested riders please let me know by mid Feb and indicate a level of commitment. I will require payment by end of Feb of the £12 to secure a place. I am looking for about 20 riders in total to make the session viable and will decide whether to go ahead with or not by the end of February depending on numbers.( If you have friends that want to come then I may be able to include them as well numbers permitting )
