Well done Niall. Definitely coming. I love the velodrome
Sounds great. I'm keen to have a go and see if i can get around with out breaking my neck
Extremely tempted to give it a go having missed out on two previous opportunities🤔😳
May need to check work calendar but would like to come even if I just watch 🚴🏻♂️
Have a go!!!
Hi All Trackies!
I need to let the Derby Arena know what bikes and shoes we need to hire.
Please can you take a look at the attached form and let me know (preferably by e-mail: email@example.com) and/or as a post below in this thread.
Check note on pedal type above to check if you need to hire shoes or not.
Also, following a few questions, can I clarify that we have NOT hired a coach to get to and from Derby - the coach is a real live track cycling instructor!
Hopefully, we can group together in cars for the travel.
Can I put my name down on the reserve list if someone drops out.
firstname.lastname@example.org - email sent! Thanks
Will do John
suggest you hit the ‘I’m attending button’
Squeaky, thanks for adding your name - currently you are No.2 on the reserve list.

1) Please can you let me know your preferred bike size and shoe size (if required) - so far I have only heard from 6 riders.

At least there will nt be any snow/ice inside the track arena!
SWANS Track Event – Derby Arena Velodrome – Friday 20th January 2023
We have organised an opportunity for those who have never ridden inside a velodrome or would like another go. It is a very different experience to riding on the road – the bikes have one fixed gear and no brakes! But don’t worry, it really is great fun, not to say exhilarating!!!
No equipment necessary – we can hire bikes and shoes (not needed if you have Look/Keo plates)
We will have one hour on the track supervised by a track coach to guide us and help us to get the most out of our session.
Our track booking is 8.00 – 9.00 pm on Friday 20th January
Derby Arena, Communities and Place, Leisure Culture and Tourism, Derby Arena, Royal Way, Pride Park, Derby, DE24 8JB Tel: 01332 640011 http://www.derby.gov.uk
Car parking is available at the venue.
BC Registered Club package
Track Hire (max 16 riders) £152.00
Cost per rider £26.81
The cost per rider assumes we have 16 riders. Individual cost would be less if you don’t hire shoes.
Bike Hire sizing:
We will need to forward this information nearer the time.
