Accreditation

The Sundrive Velodrome Committee  has re-scheduled four dates for accreditation in Dublin for those who wish to  partake in track racing at the Sundrive Velodrome in the coming year.

Gaining accreditation ensures that riders have the basic level of skill required to participate, safely, in training sessions. Riders are 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.

  • Accreditation is subject to getting a minimum of 6 participants registered by preceding Thursday.
  • New Youth Riders U10/U12/U14 will be catered for on 1st two Saturdays of each month
  • All sessions at Sundrive are weather dependent.

We have an extensive fleet of track bikes for hire and very experienced coaches on hand to help you make the transition. All hire bikes are fitted with Look Keo pedals (or toe strap via adapter) and gearing is restricted to 49×16. This gearing is fine for training and developing cadence, but anyone looking to progress in the sport would eventually have to think about getting their own bike. But, as I say, we have hire bikes to help you get up and running.

There are of course benefits to taking in all aspects of our sport and we like to encourage and welcome everyone. Track helps you improve your pedaling, pace judgement, explosive power, seated acceleration and tactical awareness. But most importantly it is technically challenging and fun! Naturally it is those who put in the most time on the track who will excel, especially with the sprint events.

Non Licence Holders : We can accommodate non licence holders, if you send an email to sundrive@trackcycling.ie (and pay online), but we will need your mobile number in addition to your email to comply with contract tracking.

Bike required ? If  you need a bike please tell us approximate size and be in the courtyard around back of clubhouse 20 minutes before the start of the session. If you have your own bike please go straight to the track and wait at the double gates. Assemble 10 minutes before session start.
