The track season is well underway at the Sundrive Track with training underway since mid January and nearly 60 riders accrediteded to date and squad session run for Junior Men, U25 Men and Women’s Elite Development Teams. The new dressing rooms etc have also come online at Sundrive with the new building now complete. Other significant changes are that there is now a ten foot unclimbable fence surrounding the track so there is no casual access for those who caused last years damage but unfortunately this also limits casual access by riders. We have already seen increased interest this year and to cater for and to progress all the diverse abilities we need to become more organised by splitting sessions based on ability and ensuring everything runs ontime.
3 separate Saturday sessions
From this Saturday there is a Derny session run by Kilcullen CC from 0800 to 1030 and riders who ride our league in the A or B sections and who have their own bikes are welcome. Only riders in the string are permitted on the track and no entry or exit while deerny is running.
These are are listed on the track website www.trackcycling.ie and will happen seperate to normal training at the listed times. These will take place twice a month, sometimes on Saturdays at 12.30 and others at 1800 on a Friday evening. From April it is no no longer allowed to change pedals on hire bikes. Our bikes are fitted with either toe straps or Look Delta pedals and you will need those plates on your shoes. This is the norm at both Manchester and Newport Velodromes so you need to get used to this if you want to progress. You also need to bring an alan key to adjust your saddle height which you should know allowing for the 165 cranks which are on track bikes.
