  • Yeah.... sorry, thought that was why you asking for sizes.... i've got look pedals but no shoes.....

  • Thomas Frost
    Hiring a bike @ 53cm
    Shoe size 9.

    Fuck yes.

  • Yes please. Just sent a polite email to my absent manager saying I won't be in Monday morning.

    56cm

    shoe size?

  • 41eu / 7.5uk

  • AGAIN PLEASE.
    That was FUCKING AMAZING. I do quite like the whole track thing.

  • Good times, thanks for organising. Where were you Nes and Nasty?!

    Good to meet you Disrail and I think Andy?

  • Oh man, if only I'd found this thread a week ago!

    Hey everyone. I used to post on lfgss back in the day, started off riding with the cambridge guys and then spent some time in london. I'm working in manchester during the week now and saw a bunch of posters for fixed stuff when I was doing some climbing in the MCC. Seems theres a lot happening up here!

    I've been trying to get down to the velodrome but when I rang they said all the taster sessions were fully booked until july... Can't believe I didnt check here first! When's the next session guys?

  • AWOL!!!
    then far far far too busy at work :(

  • Yeah sweet session. Sprints were good.

    fastest time was James with 18 secondsish??, which is about 30mph average around the track.

    Didn't get my pink slip yet again. I thought you could get this from a taster session. You need this to go onto the track skills sessions, but to be honest I can't afford a new bike, and I can't afford to keep going and paying for a hire bike, so it's a moot point at the mo.....

    Nes, PM me your a/c and s/c and I'll wire the £12.50 over to you.

    aye, was good fun, don't reckon a pink slip was in the running today anyway dude, normally there's a few people in a group who are after one. think you've got to ride none stop for twenty minutes and ride in a pack swapping lead between each other. that's what i got told last time anyway.

  • I'd like to get the pink slip! Are the track skills sessions cheaper then? When I went before we had to ride between the length of a lamb and a sheep behind the wheel of the guy in front. Mint sauce. That was Andrea's advice. Have asked for a pink slip before but never really known if I failed or the coach forget or if they were just being polite..!

  • First you need the pink slip.

    Then you need to attend 3 track skills sessions I think, which cost as much as a taster, but do not include bike hire. If you fail a skill session you have to retake.

    After that you can attend SQT (Structured Quality Training) which is just a turn up and ride 2 hour session for only £7ish. Also, you can enter any of the track leagues.

  • Sweet, think I'll try and get my pink slip. If anyone wants to join me on my quest (I'm guessing in July sometime) drop us a PM.

    LFGSSManchesterTrackTeam would be mint. I'd love to use the Velodrome more often, I'm always dead impressed we can use such an awesome facility.

  • I'm well up for gettin into this track racing business. Need some sporting activity to keep me busy. Gutted I couldn't come on monday sounds like it was well fun. Definitely up for trying to get pink slip etc....

  • i'm definitely looking to get accreditation ultimately, and know a few other epople i've ridden with before who are looking for the same, wouldn't be able to attend many sessions till end of may though as i've got a dissertation to write and exams to do

  • they have full day skills sessions nearly every month where people who have had a few tasters can go and get their slips thing in one day...i think there's one in june and one in august i was there today..think i picked up a form...took my kids on it..they friggin loved it..should compare you lots times with some 10 year olds!!

    and i met chris hoy and the coach for Beijing Olympics who kinda tried to talent spot one of the girls...ace.

  • and i met chris hoy .

    shoulda got him to come to pollo, that'll help the recruitment drive!

  • oh his calves would make me do almost anything...didn't dare look up to his thighs...was already quivering...if he came to polo i wouldn't know what to do with myself...no one would come they would be too scared...

  • meh hoy aint got nothing on glob
