Last Calshot Track session of this winter 9th March 13.00 – 16.00

We the last  Calshot track this winter – on Saturday 9th March
 
– if you want to ride you need to book a place ASAP to do this e-mail coachgraham@poolewheelers.com
  
We will again be running these with our friends from Palmer Park Reading – this limits us to 20 riders from Poole Wheelers – per session
 
If you want to ride you MUST book a place by e-mail – coachgraham@poolewheelers.com
 
These sessions will be open to all members, and will be ideal for someone who has not ridden the track before and wants to come along and learn, but also for experienced riders.
 
The emphasis will be on learning to ride the track safely and competently in a group – yes, there will be some times when you will be required to work harder, but also times when you can have a bit of fun; after all, it will be winter then and not too many of you will still be racing. Depending on the take up, we can increase the intensity of the sessions in the New Year when some of you will be building up towards the new season.
 
Remember this is Calshot – NO big gears, 81” is ideal – I will be checking!!! (U16’s use an U14 gear).
 
If you don’t have a track bike, these can be hired at the track, cost is £10.00 for seniors and £7.50 for juniors (u18).The hire bikes are fitted with Look Keo pedals. Shoes are also available for hire at a cost of £3.50.
Pedals are not allowed to be changed on Hire Bikes
 
However we do have some club bikes so if you need one please contact me before and we will see if we have one you can borrow.
 
There are good changing / shower facilities at the track should you require these after the session.
If you have any questions about the session please e-mail coachgraham@poolewheelers.com
