NB: stuff cut and paste'd from 2013 thread but fairly sure all deets staying the same
Date: Sessions run weekly from Sunday 2nd March, 2014
Time: Official time is 5pm - 7pm [Please note it will run at an earlier time of **4-6 **until the clocks change]
Where: Herne Hill Velodrome, Burbage Rd, Herne Hill, http://www.hernehillvelodrome.com/
Price: £6 [**I assume prices are staying same as 2013]
Equipment: Hire bikes available FoC. If you need one, pls arrive at least 15 mins before the session so you have time to pick your bike up and adjust the saddle etc. You can change pedals if you want to, but pls bring your own tools to do so. Helmets are available to borrow, but I would strongly suggest you bring your own.
Clothing: Please ensure you wear long sleeves and gloves. Padded shorts are advisable as saddles are not the best.
Beginner Inductions: If you are new to the track, this session is perfect for you. We will give you a one-to-one induction at the start of the session and take you through the dos and don'ts of track riding. Once you are inducted you will join in the general session.
Main Session: The session caters for track riders of all abilities. Riders will be spilt up according to ability and the sessions will be tailored every week to make sure everyone gets a great work out. Throughout the season we will be working on basic skills such as; group riding, holding a wheel, changes, riding the banking, sprinting and basic race scenarios. And then for those who want to, more advanced skills such as standing starts, keiren racing, match sprints, bunch races and advanced track skills.
NB: Sessions can be cancelled at the last minute due to poor weather, so I recommend to going the Facebook group for uptodate info.
Look forward to seeing you soon xxx
