Cycling

Welcome back to the track! 

Its been a long time without track cycling, but from Monday 14 September Derby Arena can welcome you back onto the track. 

Following guidance from British Cycling, the re-opening of the track will be completed in phases, to ensure everyone's safety is our priority. 

Phase one will see accredited riders programme returning. We look forward to welcoming a wider range of riders over the coming weeks and months as the guidance changes to allow this to happen.

Returning track cyclists 

All sessions will have to be booked in advance, to allow us to regulate the numbers of people attending at any one time, and the thorough cleaning of all equipment between sessions. 

The programme will be available to book up to 28 days in advance, so booking for the 14 September can start from 1 September, book online or by calling 01332 640011
