Accreditation Stages Pathway
Make your way from Beginner to Stage 4 or go as far as you want, we have drop-in sessions for all stages.
Stage 1 (Beginners)
A great introduction to track cycling for beginners, no previous experience required. Riders will be given full instruction on how to control the fixed wheel bike and how to ride on the steeply banked wooden track.
Focuses on improving skills and confidence including the introduction of group riding and changing in a line.
This stage refines group riding and introduces a range of drills to stretch a rider in both skills and fitness.
Stage 4 (Race Accreditation)
Riders wishing to attend Newport Live track league will be required to attend a race accreditation session where race-specific skills will be assessed. This session will include race simulations and feedback from the coach.
Please note, riders wishing to take an accreditation test must have been approved by their coach from the previous stage or from attending drop-in sessions. It is not possible to book onto the accreditation unless this has taken place.
