As you may be aware, the indoor Velodrome at Manchester is now undergoing track relaying and as such the usual Regional Track Clusters cannot take place there in the summer of 2018.

With this in mind, the North East region have teamed up with the Yorkshire region and planned a similar format of Track Coaching to take place at Middlesbrough & York Outdoor Velodromes so that riders can continue with their development regularly and locally.

Careful consideration has been paid to minimise clashes with Coaching & Competition calendars across both regions, and multiple disciplines, however, as is increasingly the case, we have had to schedule dates that the majority of volunteers are available to coach.

Some key information is summarised below, however full details are contained within each link;

- Middlesbrough session prices are £7.00 plus £1.00 booking fee

- York session prices are £10.00 plus £1.00 booking fee

- Sessions will be structured Novice, Intermediate and Advanced

- Sessions will be for one hour each per group e.g Novice 13.30 -14.30 / Intermediate 14.30-15.30 / Advanced 15.30 -16.30

- All sessions will be open to riders from all Go-Ride clubs in both regions, riders do not need to be from Club mark accredited clubs to attend

- Sessions will form part of the pathway for progressing onto Accreditation once the NCC is back open in September time, with a view to increase the number of riders elegible to race regionally & nationally.

The dates are as follows:
