New session times from Saturday 26th September !


In order to ease congestion and aid social distancing at session changeover time, we are making some changes to our sessions times:

  • 09.45 - 10.45 – Beginner and Improver

  • 11.15 - 13.00 - Intermediate / Advanced


Please can riders and parents from the earlier session try to disperse by 11.00 so that the riders in the second session can start arriving after 11.00.


If possible, we ask that only one parent brings their children to the velodrome.


We are following British Cycling’s guidelines on group sizes for coached sessions. Please note that these may change at short notice. We are currently limited to a maximum group of 30 people, including coaches and helpers, so we now need everyone to book in advance.
