Accreditation is the basic level of skill required to participate in training and riders will be required to participate in at least one further full training session and only if can be signed off on some other skills and ability to display those at speed, will then be allowed to race.
Remaininig 2016 Dates for Accreditation
Saturday 23rd July 14.00 ** (Final Accreditation for Racing in 2016)
Saturday 1st October 10am (Extra Accreditation in prep for 2017 Season)
** On these dates New U10/12/U14 riders will be accommodated during the youth Session at 12.30. Apart from Accreditation dates we will accept new youth riders during the first two weeks of the month at any youth specific session
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.
Pedals : For 2015 we are changing to ‘LOOK KEO’ on our hire bikes
Accreditation Costs at Sundrive
- Senior €10 & €5 bike hire

Please note also that once again this year the accreditation will be a two-stage process. Basic skills and ability to participate in normal track training will be acquired on the scheduled dates below. But all riders will have to partake in at least one further normal training session where they will have to develop those skills and demonstrate their ability to perform them at speed safely before being allowed to race.
