Are you a new rider?

Want to find out whether you enjoy riding on the track before you go for accreditation? Join us on our Derby Taster sessions. These are purely based on the fun elements of track cycling and hope to ease you into the extremely fun and adrenaline-ridden sport. These sessions cost the same as a stage 1 track cycling session - £14.60.

Or, if you would like to jump straight into the accreditation process, then you'll need to book in for a Track cycling taster (Stage 1 Track Cycling session). Please complete the cycling lifestyle questionnaire before coming in for your first track cycling session. Find out more on our New riders page.

Do you have an accreditation from another UK-based velodrome?

You'll just need to come in for a Probationary Accreditation session. In order to book please call us on 01332 640011 or speak to a member of staff at reception.

Coming to Derby Arena on your bike?

If you are travelling to Derby Arena on your bike and using the cleats then please take a separate pair of shoes with you. All of our visitors will need to remove their cleats before entering the Arena. Thank you very much for your understanding.
