 Velodrome Cluster Session

Hi All,

Our next track cluster session is now on line, see the link below.—Lancashire-Cluster

If you could please forward this to your members. To be eligible for these sessions riders need to have current club membership and BC membership, so if they haven’t renewed yet they won’t be able to enter.

Well done to our cluster riders who all passed their accreditation on the 4th Jan. If they haven’t started racing in any winter Track Leagues then please encourage them to continue to attend the track cluster session. There will hopefully be another accreditation session in the summer.

Well done also to the Cluster coaches that attended the L2 Track Award course. If you are able to attend the next session let me know if you want to deliver a session towards your award.

Don’t forget it will soon be the Go Ride Conferences, see ad below, if you have any club officials, volunteers and young volunteers that would like to attend get your application in ASAP.

Any questions please get in touch.
