Lee Valley Velo Car Parking Charges w.e.f. 25th July

Riders directly involved with our track bookings are entitled to 4 hours free parking from entering the car park. To obtain this free parking period each rider must enter their vehicle registration number into one of the venue’s terminals, one being on track centre at any time during their visit. To avoid getting a penalty charge riders must enter their vehicle registration. If a PCN ticket is issued as a rider has forgotten to or entered in their details incorrectly there is nothing the venue can do. If riders want to stay longer than four hours the parking charges and conditions will apply. You can stay for a max 2hrs after your 4 free hours but will have to pay £4 per hour for the privilege. It’s not clear what happens if you are at an event/activity all day.

Building a volunteer workforce for Track School’s future

It has been suggested that each club takes turn in organising the set-up, sign-on, bike shed,etc. & whilst this sounds ideal smaller clubs will not have the manpower to do this at Welwyn so it will still need to be a co-operative.

Therefore, I am suggesting, as one of the older participating clubs with manpower available, that Colchester Rovers take the lead for these aspects for the remaining sessions in Block 2 & Block 3. Parents from other clubs are expected to step forward to help them & learn the ropes to build a stronger & more robust volunteer support team for the future.

When we move back indoors for the winter there is much less to do & requires fewer bodies so the less well represented clubs can contribute more easily.

I hope this is satisfactory for everyone & if so who is taking the lead please?

Track School Official Tabards

To help everyone identify official helpers at Track School sessions & promote who we are, particualrly at Lee Valley velodrome, we now have our very own tabards.

These are for be worn by anyone who is not a track coach, i.e. L2 coaches, holders, gate monitors, lap board/bell assistants, bike shed ‘boys’, signing-on, etc.
