Main Points : Sessions can only be booked through the App with a max of 10 riders at Sundrive. There will be a charge of €5 per session. No bike hire available and no access to the pavilion at this stage.
                   

Points not mentioned : Separate Entry and Exit points. At end of session riders have ten minutes to clear the field, while new riders cannot enter until 10 minutes before session.
                                     
Sessions will start promptly on the hour and riders need to be ready to roll.
                                     
We may have 2 groups on the track during the warm up, but these will be riding well in excess of 2m (10m to 20m) .
                                     
During the session we may just have 5 riders on the track at anyone time as during efforts greater separation will be required..
                                     
Riders will have appointed rail start/stop point and will be in separate rider pens. Rails will be sanitized between sessions.
                                     
Coaches will open and close gates. No late entry permitted to session. If parent accompanying a youth rider, they must remain in their riders pen.

Everything we do has to be passed by the expert group and how sessions develop will also have to be passed by them. Just of note – this will not be a ‘normal’ track training session as distancing will be enforced at all stages. Social distancing off the track and enhanced distancing on it.

Sessions initially will just be on Saturdays but this can be expanded as we assess demand. Sessions will be adult training orientated but younger riders with their own bikes are welcome. We will be expanding to youth specific sessions but at the moment we are not hosting them as we have no access to hire bikes.

When???? We hope to return to training this Saturday June 13th, if we can get all the pre-requisites sorted
