Archie’s Derby Go Ride Experience

Archie Bracewell flying the Welwyn Wheelers flag in Derby yesterday (25th May 2015).


As Archie is only 9 they have been going to Manchester for him to ride the boards. Derby put on a special Go Ride session yesterday which allowed Cat D’s to ride “it was a fantastic afternoon and I can highly recommend it to anyone who has an U10 who would like to have a go”. They will obviously get more out of it if they have had some track experience – especially for the skills sets.

Well done Archie we are pleased you had such a good time

Update Evening 10 -19th May 2015

These roadworks are due to complete tomorrow, in time for the TT, but
the surface condition is not yet known.

I will be checking it out before the race start, but there is the
possibility that the event may be cancelled if not safe or delayed due
to the time taken to check it out.

Change to Novice session time and start of new Super Skills

Change to Novice session time and start of new Super Skills sessions for younger(u10 and below) less experienced riders

The coaching group has created a Super Skills session for existing younger riders. This will start at 9am and last until 10:45. It will give the younger (u10 and below) riders time on track bikes (if they wish) and freewheel bikes.  This will help develop greater skills and be more exciting for younger minds. Those that should be part of this group are:-

  • the existing 11am novice riders
  • those already in the least experienced 9am group

Both these groups should come at 9am with a freewheel bike and  be prepared to ride on track bikes.

Existing Freewheelers are unaffected, as are those in the middle 9am group.

The coaching group very much looks forward to seeing you all for this exciting new session.

There will be no track session at 11am
