Dulwich Paragon is already the fastest growing club in track racing at Herne Hill – and this year we want to be the biggest! Therefore we want to make the whole experience of getting members into track, onto the track, and then accredited and racing as easy as possible. All are welcome and encouraged – any age, any sex
Here’s the session details of what we’re doing in March to fast track people to track riding & racing:-
*DPCC Track Induction session – Sunday 3rd March (15:00 – 17:00)*
This session is ideal for those with no prior track experience, who want to try out track riding in a fun, but structured and competitive session with fellow DP club members. This session will be run by experienced HHV track coaches, and track hire bikes will also be provided free of charge for the session. This session is not limited in numbers and will be free for Dulwich members – but please post up to this thread if you are interested to secure a spot beforehand as we do have to provide numbers to the coaches
*DPCC Track Chat (Weeknight early March, date & venue TBC)*
An off the bike information session, talking all things track. This will follow shortly after the Induction Session, and will be focussed on the next steps and pathway to racing for beginners. We’ll have a few experienced Track members, and some newbies as well to share their experiences and learnings. There will be beer!
*DPCC Track training Accreditation session – Sunday 17th March (15:30 – 17:00)*
This is the next step on from induction – this session culminates in a formal test of track riding skills & awareness that will see you (if successful) gain the first level of HHV track accreditation, that will allow you to attend all of the regular group training sessions at Herne Hill (and even race some Vets & Women’s league events). Again the track hire bikes will be available for this session, entries for this session will be via RiderHQ through a link that I will share closer to the time.
For those looking to complete the final stage of accreditation for HHV (Race accreditation) – stay tuned as further Race accreditation slots (not DP specific) are being planned for March and I will announce on the forum when the dates have been confirmed.
So…. With the prospect of track racing and beer in the sun just around the corner – Who’s in?
