ACCRED 1: 11 - 12PM
ACCRED 2: 12 - 1PM
Junior Accreditation 8 years to 15 years

Accreditation 1 Mondays 1600hrs and Saturdays 1000 hrs

Accreditation 2 Friday 1800hrs

Details of the pathway :

Level 1 | INTRODUCTION TO TRACK CYCLING - 1 hour​

This is the first step for anyone who wants to ride a fixed gear bike on a banked velodrome and as such is the first part of the accreditation process. The coach will take riders through a check list of skills necessary to allow the rider to enter the track and ride on the banked surface safely. If you can perform the skills satisfactorily you will be eligible to progress to the next stage of rider accreditation. If the rider does not perform the required skills or booked only to try they can book as many introductory sessions as they wish.

Level 2 | IMPROVE YOUR TRACK SKILLS - 1 hour

The second of the four accreditation sessions is designed to move the rider into group riding on the track and allows them to become more independent. Again the coach will require the rider to demonstrate a series of skills including those listed in the introduction session before moving on to the next step.

Skills covered will include accelerating in and out of the saddle and completing a track tour.​

Level 3 | PREPARATION FOR ACCREDITATION - 2 hours

Advanced skills are taught in this session and the rider must demonstrate a certain level of fitness, 30 minutes riding with a group. Skills included in this session include riding in close proximity to other riders and an Italian pursuit race.

level 4 | ACCREDITATION - 2 hours

This is the minimum required to allow riders to take part in open sessions, structured training, competition, bunch races and track leagues.

All skills listed in previous sessions must be demonstrated to the coach who will assess whether a rider is safe to enter the track as an accredited rider, capable of entering structured training and competition.​



Code of Conduct

When you come along to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome for the first time, you will be asked to fill out a health questionnaire*, and to read through and sign our Code of Conduct**. These documents are part of a number of measures we will be bringing in to improve your experience, and health and safety in the facility. The forms take a short time to fill in, and you will be required to complete before accessing the track, so please ensure you arrive at least 30 minutes before your session is due to start. If you do not arrive 30 minutes prior to the session start time, please be advised that you may not be able to take part in the class.

For those under 16, a parent or guardian will be required to counter-sign, so please ensure that an adult is present for your first session.

*A sample of the health questionnaire you will be asked to fill in can be found here and should be looked through prior to you coming to the venue. If you have any concerns and are ticking any of the following boxes:

•Cancer

•Recent Surgery

•Faint and Dizzy spells

•Epilepsy

•Tumour

You must see your GP and bring with you written confirmation that they are satisfied that you are able to take part in the activity.

Please note: Accreditation sessions are subject to late cancellation due to minimum participant numbers required. If you have booked a velodrome session we endeavour to contact you and give you as much notice of cancellation as possible.
