Track School (formerly Eastern Region Track Cluster) is a British Cycling initiative, run by volunteers, to bring riders of similar ages & experiences together to learn and develop track riding skills from novices to National champions. Track School is open to members of Go-Ride clubs in the Eastern Region only. Track School sessions run throughout the year at Welwyn & Lee Valley. In order to attend, a rider requests to be nominated through their club’s Track Co-ordinator. ALL new Track School riders must attend sessions at Welwyn during the summer months before they can be nominated for sessions at LVVP velodrome. Please note, these sessions are not run by LVYCC and are separate from our own club sessions.
Sessions at Welwyn are run in Blocks of 2-4 weeks & riders are required to attend all sessions in a Block. Riders are placed in the Novice, Red, Amber or Green group depending upon the type of activities being run, rider age & experience & this can change from session to session.
There are two sessions coming up that are open to:
· Current ETS riders and Newcomers.
· This includes novice track/fixed wheel riders
· Riders must be 10 Years of age or older
Riders must commit to and attend all Block 2 sessions (this does not apply to Green Group riders – these riders are ones that have been going to Track School for some time and tend to be the older riders)
