Gaining accreditation ensures that riders have the basic level of skill required to participate, safely, in training sessions. Riders are then required to participate in at least one further full training session subsequent to the accreditation session in order for the coaches to assess their ability. Should the rider attain the required skills standard they will be ‘signed off’ and issued with an accreditation ‘pink slip’.  Once the rider has a ‘pink slip’ they will be allowed to partake in competition.

Pedals : ‘LOOK KEO’  or ‘Toe Strap with Runners‘ on our hire bikes

Full List of Accredited Riders – Alphabetical  (updated  10th May 2019)

Riders we have not seen since before 2017 have been removed from the list.
If a rider of experience wishes to be re-added, then they must attend a training session to be reassessed. Riders without considerable experience who have been removed will have to redo the accreditation process. Riders on the list last seen in 2017, will be removed at the end of this season if they have not attended at least one training session in 2018 or 2019.  Please email sundrive@trackcylcing.ie if you think your name should be on the list stating when you last trained or raced track
