Beginner track sessions run by PDQ Cycle Coaching are aimed at riders new to track riding, where it is their first time or they have ridden the track 1-2 times already. The beginner session will start with a briefing about track riding, the rules and safety guidelines. The session is aimed at getting the riders familiar with riding a fixed wheel bike before progressing onto the track. By the end of the session you will be riding up the banking and performing drills like weaving between cones. All riders signing onto this session must be able to ride a bike competently prior to the session.
Each session will generally be run as 2 groups on the session, so while one group is riding the other will be resting. Therefore your approximate track time will be 1 hour. This is usual for track cycling as the intense effort and constant pedalling means you need frequent rests.
The 2 hour sessions are £15 and 3 hour sessions are £20.
Take a look at our Beginner Guide to Track Cycling for tips on what to wear, what to bring, hiring track bikes and how to ride the track.
