Derby Velodrome Track Day
Derby Velodrome Day – Would there be anyone willing to organise the next trip to the Derby Velodrome from 3pm to 6pm on the 23rd of October 2016? Ray Morgan has all the contact details which include; 3 hours of coached track time with 2 coaches. FREE lunch, bike, helmet, shoe & glove hire. Prizes for the top 3 female & male winners.… Bottled water & Team photo.
All for only £34 each!!! We would need 42 riders to break even and there needs to be a maximum of 48 riders. The organiser would obviously be fully supported by the IRC club committee. If a willing person came forward asap it would be appreciated as the booking has been made provisionally and it would be a shame to lose it.
