Notes

Road bikes – Bikes in good clean road worthy condition with brakes and gears
Track bikes – Fixed wheel track bikes only
Cyclo-cross or mountain bikes are required for Cyclo-cross sessions
The maximum rider number per coach for advanced sessions is 20 and 15 for novice sessions on the track. Please therefore try to attend the right session for you, avoiding multiple sessions. (We have over 175 club members to potentially accommodate).
Important - No visible cycle computers allowed. Cycling gloves and two layers (top half of body) and helmet (CE Certified) are compulsory. Please wear leggings and arm warmers if temperature is forecast below 14C. Please try to avoid being late for sessions as it is imperative that you join the warm up. You may be asked to warm up on rollers if you are late.

All bikes must be clean and in good working order. Coaches may refuse track entrance if bikes are deemed unsafe.

Fixed wheel Track bikes are available to hire from the coach at £3 per session (£5 for non-members). Note - Pedals cannot be changed. The pedals will only accommodate flat soled shoes/trainers.

Note - General Age restrictions are for guidance and are at the discretion of the coach based upon ability. If in any doubt then please check with the coach beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Finally - Please remember that all coaches are volunteers.
