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  October 2nd 2018)

Riders we have not seen since before 2016 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 re assessed. Riders without considerable experience who have been removed, will have to re do the accreditation process. Riders on the list last seen in 2016, will be removed at the end of this season if they have not attended at least one training session in 2017 or 2018.  Please email sundrive@trackcylcing.ie if you think your name should be on the list stating when you last trained or raced track
