Go Ride Clubs Track Cluster Session

The next North East Go Ride Clubs Track Cluster Session at Manchester Velodrome will take place on Sunday 11th October 2015.

This session is open to youth riders aged 9 - 16 who are members of North East Go Ride clubs.

The day will consist of the usual 3 groups (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and we will be introducing a skills criteria which riders must meet before moving up to the next group. We are also asking that once riders have experienced track cycling, if they are keen to continue with the cluster sessions, we would like them to commit to the process of attending regularly and developing as track racers with the intention of eventually gaining accreditation for track racing. This should ensure riders continually develop their skills and allow new riders to come through.

Below is a link to enter the event, which includes contact details for track bike hire.


In the event that the session is oversubscribed, the organiser will select entrants after consultation with club coaches.
