  • 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
    Coach £30.50
    Bike £8.50
    Shoes £6.90
    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.

  • 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: brashn@live.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.
