Extra track sessions added

Tue 8 Sep 2015

To ensure that our programme is varied and is suitable for everyone along with the veteran SQT and female only sessions we have added a couple of extra sessions to our programme.

Stage 2+ session

Based on rider feedback we have introduced a new session called Stage 2 Plus sessions, which have been designed to assist with your development. This is not a compulsory session, but will help the riders become more confident on the track and gain more experience practicing some of the skills that are part of the Stage 3 sessions, such as riding and changing in pairs, stacking 4-05 riders abreast, through and off, and much more. If you don’t feel like you are quite ready for the Stage 3 session yet, then Stage 2 Plus session is perfect for you.

The session is 90 minutes long, take place on Tuesdays (starting on Tuesday 15 September) at 5pm – 6.30pm and will cost £17.25 (bike hire is included in the price). There are reduced rates available for customers with leisure cards.

To book on for the sessions please get in touch with the Arena by either calling 01332 640011 or emailing derbyarena@derby.gov.uk.

Para-cycling sessions

The first Para-cycling session that took place at the Arena on Saturday 8 August went really well with 4 Para-cyclists (3 partially or fully blind and one solo rider with cerebral palsy) attending. We received positive feedback from the riders and are looking at organising more sessions in the near future. Pricing for these sessions are yet to be confirmed and will be announced once available.

If you are interested in either taking part in the Para-cycling sessions yourself or are interested in becoming a pilot for the Para-cyclists then get in touch with us by emailing derbyarena@derby.gov.uk.

We always welcome your feedback so get in touch with us if there are any specific elements or sessions that you would like to focus on.
