Through and off, group riding.

Not beng rude, (and this goes for anyone else who isn't sure) but if you don't have experience of this, you might want to wait until spring for the track sessions, or find a friendly cycling club, go on some club runs and learn about how to ride in a bunch.

This pleases me. I had hoped that there might be a chain gang this winter, beats getting covered with shite on the roads.

A BC registered one, with insurance and a proper kit, with colours that don't get changed every three months.

None of this weak willed 'bunch of mates who liked riding and drinking together' bullshit, join a fixie forum if you want that shit

How many people went for the Saturday chain gang / laps last week? I'm keen but it'll definitely be more fun with 10+.

I went last week. May go tomorrow. There must have been about 20 in the quickest group (which I think was purposefully on the steady side of average for intermediates, in my limited experience).

Don't like the look of the forecast though.

...only thing I would add is wear some decent kit. Jeans and cardigans are for going to the movies :)

I'd also like to ask about the Adult Turbo Trainer sessions. I've looked on the website, but the only info I can see is on the calendar.

What happens in these sessions? How much does it cost and is it coached?
Is there a formal skill limit to these sessions, or is there a recommended limit similar to that recommended for the current Intermediate Chaingang sessions?

Cheers

You must have your group turbo training accreditation so the coach/other riders know you can hold your line and not stop suddenly, causing an accident.

What if you puncture or are dropped on a turbo session. Do the rest wait for you or do they just ride on and leave you like on club social rides?

What do you expect, riding track bikes at a CX venue? Silly people.

Must have been warm enough for 'proper' training nearly today?

I had originally heard that proper "summer" intermediate training (i.e. not the chaingang) was starting up again this Saturday, but it doesn't appear so according to the HHV site....

Can anyone confirm?

  • Friday Youth Club Members Training, starts on 15th March at 6pm (no session on Good Friday)
  • Saturday Intermediate Track Training starts on 16th March at 10am
  • Sunday Advanced Training starts on 17th March at 9am

Trying to buy my race licence (hope to ride in the league this year) and I'm not sure if I need to purchase the full licence with silver membership or if the provisional licence with silver membership is enough. Can anyone help?

If you are ONLY going to ride League, then you only need a provisional with silver. You cannot get points on your license. TL points are awarded (I think) at the end of the season based on overall placings, so I guess not much of a worry to you.

However, track racing is addictive and if you've got a competitive streak like me and found you've scored a few TL points after a few weeks no doubt someone will ask, 'you riding the Omnium event on Saturday?' Now you are able to get some points on your license.

For now, buy a provisional and then once you are addicted, upgrade to a full license.
