  • arrive in plenty of time to sign on and hire bikes if necessary, ready to start at 10am
  • Parents/carers are required to stay at the circuit for the entire session (there is a cafe with free wifi) or we always seek volunteer helpers & it would be something to do instead of hanging round getting bored!
  • No adult riders unless you are a coach or approved helper (see the coaches if you want to help)
  • Don’t forget to sign out before you leave
  • Make sure that you or your child have your payment with you when you sign on. Only Coaches are exempt from paying a session fee.

 A repeat of the item received from Neil Irons of CCH:
Hi guys we are running trials on behalf of the London borough of Hackney for their London Youth games cycling squad – the next one will be at Hog Hill on Saturday 8th June at 9am and will be completed before the usual LVYCC Saturday morning sessions – one lap for U12s and two for U16s  – if you have any riders that live or go to school in Hackney they are eligible to trial for the squad – also if any of your riders want to test themselves anyway they are welcome to join in – the LYG are on the 6th July – same day as the national circuit champs for youth up in Blackpool so I expect some of the serious racers will be going to do that instead – totally understandable however they are still welcome to test themselves – we’ll be there with stopwatches….Neil Irons
