Velodrome (Derby Arena)

7:00 Fri, 17 Feb 2017


Meet at:

Distance: 0.00km

Duration: 2hr 0

I have booked the velodrome for 2 hours. Put your name down if you can make it. Only 20 places! - No evening/afternoon slots available before this date!!


Do you know if they'll run it as a proper level 3 session?


20:55 Tue, 3 Jan 2017

I have advised that the new riders in the last session have achieved both levels 1 and 2 and provided membership numbers. Should I be asking other questions???


21:24 Tue, 3 Jan 2017

I'm sure Phil said at the end of the last session that this 2 hours could get you accredited if all went well? Seems like nobody else heard it though so don't rely on that.


21:46 Tue, 3 Jan 2017

Yeah he said he'd be happy to count everyone as having passed 1 and 2 but, even though they're pretty basic, we didn't really cover all the excercises those sessions include. I'd just hope that as we're organising this to gain level 3 rather than as just a club trip to the velodrome it would be run as a normal level 3 accreditation session.

I'm in, good excuse to take the day off :-)

Its a level 3 session ,but other members who are fully accredited can join in, but have to do as they are told!


12:46 Thu, 5 Jan 2017

I've stuck my name down but not sure I can actually make it - if I do, I'll probably have to leave a bit before 9 to go to work. But if the session looks like filling up then I'll give up my spot to someone else.


13:38 Thu, 5 Jan 2017

Count me in please, I have done my level 3 but it was beginning of last year.

anybody need to bring any offspring with them? I can keep them out of trouble if necessary :)


20:35 Thu, 5 Jan 2017

Just for info we have asked a couple of riders from Coalville Wheelers to join us to make up the numbers - non club members pay 15


16:39 Tue, 10 Jan 2017

I'm in. My membership number from Dec 15th session is 10017028


21:35 Thu, 12 Jan 2017

I'm in for the Fri, membership no 10016700


8:21 Sat, 14 Jan 2017

I'm in if this completes the level 3 that would be great

8:34 Sat, 14 Jan 2017

I'm in, I will dig out my membership number, think I'm only level 1 at the moment will I be able to take part or do I need to get 2 in before it? Book me in anyway.


20:44 Sat, 14 Jan 2017

I would have thought we could get you in Mr Boot, I shall ask Richard to phone up. Assuming he can get to speak to someone who knows anything...will get back to you:)


21:21 Mon, 16 Jan 2017

Hi Guys
Just been in touch with Phil, the coach last time, and he has advised that the session will be a level 3 session.
Rich, had this reply: "As for the session structure adding a novice would be ok as long as the coach is made aware and the exceptions of what the rider can achieve are set. Usually better to let them know they may be asked to ride solo for a while until coach happy to integrate into the session with others"
JonM and Mat - Do you already have levels 1 & 2 or were these achieved at the session in December?


10:24 Tue, 24 Jan 2017

My Membership Number: 10017604

Tim H

12:21 Tue, 24 Jan 2017

These were promised at the session in Dec (for both myself and Matt).


10:58 Thu, 26 Jan 2017

Ok - I thought JonM and Mat had already received accreditation. I have asked Phil to note levels 1 and 2 for JonM, Mat and Tim H. Any more?
Jonm can you click the "count me in" button as I don't want to check through all the posts to count numbers.
Any one wishing to attend please click the count me in button! I have 4 more non members attending to make the numbers up so need 16 names here!


12:39 Tue, 31 Jan 2017

RichO - as I said above, I've clicked "count me in" but am not at all certain I'll be able to make it. If numbers are tight, feel free to give my place to someone who can definitely attend.


15:20 Tue, 31 Jan 2017

Hi Rich - I have noted that you may not be available.


13:09 Fri, 3 Feb 2017

Hi, Are there any places left on this?

Daniel T

22:53 Fri, 3 Feb 2017

Yes - you are in Dan


10:33 Wed, 8 Feb 2017

1 place left (or 2 if Rich Alexander can't make it) so get your name down if you want to go.....


10:34 Wed, 8 Feb 2017

Something else has now come up at work so I definitely can't make it. So two places still left.


14:50 Wed, 8 Feb 2017

I'm fully accredited but struggle for track time at the moment so count me in still

Matthew J

22:07 Wed, 8 Feb 2017

OK Rich, shame :-(


16:59 Thu, 9 Feb 2017

Anyone able to offer me a lift there and back? I won't be taking a bike.


11:23 Sat, 11 Feb 2017

I can take you Mat


10:21 Sun, 12 Feb 2017

1 space left. Anybody?


13:14 Tue, 14 Feb 2017

There's only one seven o'clock in the day as far as I know and it falls just after I've had my tea...


15:58 Tue, 14 Feb 2017


Thanks for sorting all this and forwarding our numbers for Level 1 & 2. Are we just paying for bike/shoe hire? Looking forward to it. See you all tomorrow.


10:19 Thu, 16 Feb 2017

Mat - yes - club has paid for the track and coach - But Non members pay 15.
Everybody pays their own shoe and bike hire cost.


16:08 Thu, 16 Feb 2017

Well done everyone -Great session and we all achieve accreditation - Speaking to Phil afterward, he has informed me that they will let BC know. Track Accreditation then is added to your next BC licence/membership so can you let me have your BC number please. Message me at you're not happy posting here.


11:07 Fri, 17 Feb 2017

Thanks rich, enjoyed today, half tempted to go a little more often, maybe only when it's cold or wet out though.
