Called "Saturday Morning Race Track" the sessions will be organised around different ability groups. The sessions will develop fitness and technique and the series aims to get riders up to competition standard to enable them to race on the track.
The session leaders will be Richard Eastham and Jason Falconer, both qualified and accredited British Cycling coaches with experience of working with young people in a sports coaching environment.
Fixed-gear track racing bikes will be made available at each session. Riders will need to wear their own helmet and suitable clothing. Riders must also bring along their own bicycle, a drink and a snack. No need to book, just turn up on the day.
Sessions start at 10h00 until 12h00. The format will comprise skills, drills and general coaching for the first 90 minutes and then the last half hour will be dedicated to coach-led racing for those riders wanting to take part in competitions. We hope to run a points league for those that take part in the racing events.
Sessions will cost £7 per rider for the first 90 minutes or £10 for the full two hours. This fee includes access to a fixed-wheel hire bicycle. Those taking part in the sessions for the first time will need to present a completed parental consent form.
If the session has to be cancelled due to wet weather, an announcement will be made via Twitter and will appear on our home page at least one hour before the session start time.
