New Rider Induction/taster sessions.
Why should I take part in an induction/taster session?
The idea of taking part in one of these sessions is for the coaches to assess what level of rider you are, and to teach you a basic understanding of the track rules.
Riders taking part in these taster sessions are aged 4years and upwards – it’s not unusual to have riders trying for the first time aged 40 years +.
The aim is to be able to progress through to the other coaching sessions and then onto the race series.
To move on to the first level of coaching you will need to be able to complete a non stop lap of the track confidentiality and safely, and be able to pedal standing up for 50m.
A qualified club coach will asses your skill level.
When you move onto the beginner coaching sessions a club membership will be required please click here for details
For dates please see the “Diary Dates” page.
