Note: This is a closed group for Track School participants only
How do I join Track School?
You must be a member of one of the following Eastern Region Go-Ride clubs;
Barking & Dagenham CC, CC Ashwell, CC Hackney, Chelmer CC, Colchester Rovers, Ely & District CC, Essex Roads Club, Fenland Clarion, Green Arrow, Kings Lynn CC, LVYCC, Southend Wheelers, St Ives CC
If your club is not listed, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The pathway into the Eastern Track School (ETS) sessions is as follows;
- Riders from the Go-Ride clubs listed above, regardless of where they live, are nominated, just like RSRs, by their ETS club co-ordinator for a place at sessions.
- Regardless of experience, riders must attend some outdoor ETS sessions held Apr-Aug at Welwyn track before they can access the indoor sessions.
- Each year there are a number of indoor integration sessions usually in Aug/Sep where that year’s new intake of riders to Track School are given the opportunity to come to indoor sessions (LV) with existing riders in preparation for the winter season.
- From Sep-Apr only existing ETS riders with indoor experience can be nominated for indoor (LV) Track School sessions.
Where possible ETS sessions are Blocked together to help group progression & riders nominated must be able to attend consecutive sessions starting at week 1 of that Block.
Online request form now available via your club co-ordinator or the Facebook page
ALL TRACK SCHOOL RIDERS MUST REGISTER FOR FREE MEMBERSHIP at Lee Valley Velopark
If you haven’t already registered for (free) membership at LVVP & are attending Track School integration sessions please visit:
Record your membership number, maybe on a sticky label, on your racing licence & bring that with you to the sessions.
This will be a closed event for ETS participants only & riders will race in their normal coaching groups rather than in their age race categories.
It is a great opportunity for many of our newer riders to race in a familiar environment for the first time on the track without any pressures, just putting into practice what you’ve learnt. For others it’s an extra opportunity to stretch your legs in some fun events.
Payment will be on the day but we need to know in advance who is coming so we can put together a suitable programme of events.
The link will be forwarded to you by your club co-ordinator in the next few weeks or you can get it from the group’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/Eastern.Track.Cluster/?multi_permalinks=1958406604445738¬if_t=like¬if_id=1496916350795149
Expressions of interest are being sought from aspiring youth riders 13yrs+ wishing to represent the Region at the Inter-Regional Track Championship at Newport velodrome 15-17 September (tbc).

Just to confirm there will be no ETS session at Welwyn on 31 July. The next 3 standalone sessions will be at Lee Valley on 7, 21 Aug & 4 Sep. Make sure you let your club co-ordinator know if you want to be nominated for a place.
