Thank you to those who registered an interest for the annual YOGi trip to Newport Velodrome. This has now been booked for Sunday 18th September 11am-2pm and I have the following 27 confirmed as attending (No late entry’s unless replacements)
Here are the details of our trip to the Newport Velodrome;
We leave B&Q Marsh Mills at 730am with a collection also from Ivybridge Town Hall. We will aim to be back around 5-6pm.
Arrival will be for approx 1030. We have a 3 hour session booked from 11am to 2pm with the intention to split in to 2 groups and rotate at regular intervals. While one group is on the track the other group will be watching. We can have a maximum of 16 riders in each group.
The cost for the trip is £40 and includes Coach travel, Velodrome hire, a accredited coach to lead the session and individual bike hire.
For the track session you will need to wear cycle kit. Gloves are mandatory, cycle shoes with LOOK KEO / Exustar Look KEO compatible cleats, and a helmet. The velodrome will provide helmets with bikes but for comfort we suggest you bring your own. Obviously on top of this you will need food and drink and a towel etc, showers are available. There are vending machines in the velodrome and a cafe in the nearby leisure centre but can’t comment on what it offers.
**IMPORTANT – CLEATS** The velodrome bikes are fitted with Look KEO pedals – not Delta’s for those who have been before!! The pedals cannot be removed so you’ll need to fit KEO cleats to your cycling shoes for the day.
Groups will be split by experience so when making payment please indicate your level of velodrome experience:
Novice – New to velodrome riding
Intermediate – Have been before
Experienced – Familiar with all drills etc
A payment link will be sent to each member within the confirmed list above. Payment is made using Paypal and please complete the booking form.
This should be a great day out and an awesome opportunity to experience the thrill of Track Cycling.
