The Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers are pleased to announce a series of twelve track nights at the Bournemouth Velodrome (BH10 4EP) starting in May. These sessions are being promoted for members of the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers but will be open to all riders, no matter what club they belong to. The series aims to fill the gap between the accreditation events, aimed at beginners and novices, and the revamped Friday Night Track League races.
Each session will accommodate riders with a variety of ability levels and will include drills for the “fast boys and girls” and for those looking for something a bit less demanding. A structured warm-up will be followed by quality coaching sessions and over the course of twelve nights it is hoped that all track disciplines can be covered, including:
• Flying 200m effort
• Match Sprint
• Team Sprint
• Individual Pursuit
• Team Pursuit
• Italian Pursuit
• Madison Race, including hand-slings
• Elimination Race
• Scratch Race
• Points Race
The coach will be Richard Eastham, a qualified and accredited British Cycling Level 2 Track Coach and is currently working towards his Level 3 Track Coaching certificate. Richard is a member of the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers cycling club and has been an active racing cyclist for nearly 20 years. He has won several medals in national track events and has taken part in elite road races across the UK, France and Ireland. Now aged 39, Richard competed on various occasions on the road and track against Mark Cavendish, Chris Hoy, David Millar and Bradley Wiggins when he was younger. They were always much better than him.
A minimum of 8 riders are needed for each session. All sessions cost £8. Hire bikes, should they be required, cost £3. Sessions start at 6.30pm through until 8.30pm on the following dates:
• May 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th
• June 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th
• July 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th
We hope to see you there!
