Session prices

We have kept session prices down for some time but with track hire charges increasing we are going to have to put up our session prices from September 1st. Saturday and Wednesday sessions will now be £10 (Manchester residents £8).

Saturday sessions

Groups 1 and 2 can attend all Saturday sessions for the time being. Please note Saturday cancellations on September 16, November 11/18/25, December 2.

Go-Ride Holiday Coaching Camps

BC Go-Ride coaches are running track, circuit and MTB camps for riders in Youth A/B/C and Junior Girls age categories. Entries must be online and details are available here.

HSBC UK Go-Ride Holiday Coaching Camps offer training and education dedicated to specific levels of rider over a range of disciplines. Camps are available at two levels.

If your child is new to cycling or not a regular at a club or races then the beginner’s camps are for them. These offer the participant a chance to develop and become proficient at a range of core cycling and bike handling techniques that will prepare them for their first club session or race.

If your child has experience of racing and is a Go-Ride Club regular then there are advanced camps. There will be the chance to improve on the skills developed at their club as well as look at techniques across disciplines that will progress your child to the next level of their cycling journey.

Youth accreditation

Wednesday sessions are for riders who have completed their youth accreditation and the aim of the Wednesday sessions is to improve a rider's skills and fitness for competition. Riders completing their youth accreditation on Saturdays will not be moved up to our Wednesday session until they are seen to be taking part in competition such as track leagues and omniums.

Please be aware that accreditation is not necessarily permanent. In line with the NCC accreditation procedures, accreditation will be suspended if riders do not attend Wednesday sessions for a period of six months. In order to return to Wednesdays a rider will first need to attend Saturday sessions for reassessment. Accreditation can also be suspended for inappropriate riding or conduct.

NCC accreditation

Riders age 15 and over who have completed our youth accreditation can take part in NCC SQT sessions. In order to access SQTs all riders must first register with the NCC so they have a customer file. To enable riders to book SQTs we pass on details of riders completing our youth accreditation to the NCC, so please make sure you are registered with them before trying to book an SQT. Online NCC registration is available here.

Track sessions at Knowsley Velodrome

The Sunday afternoon sessions have finished for the time being.
