Darley Moor Track Session – Thursday 16th August

Meet Thursday evening 16th August, 6.30 pm at Darley Moor Track ,  just off the A515 near Ashbourne.  On arrival come through the main gate, straight on to the mini roundabout and turn right, proceed to the top of the paddock and park either side of the main Paddock Roadway near the Darley Diner. There will be an inside area available for riders to make use of for changing/storing clothing etc. We have the use of the track until dusk although the session will probably run for about an hour and half.  If you have to arrive later than 6.30 that’s fine – late arrivals will be able to slot in but please see Marie when you arrive prior to using the track.

This will be a good opportunity to practice and improve your confidence in group riding and bike handling skills on a safe off road environment. For example:- Drafting behind a wheel,  cycling in pairs/singles within a group, Rotating the leading pair on the front, hand signals, reaching for water bottle while riding etc etc. 

If people are up for it we will also be having a go at doing a few elimination races & 4 man pursuits.  There will be a few ACC volunteer riders helping to organise activities and we’ll be keen to hear what you prefer to do on the evening.  If any riders want to use the track just on their own you are very welcome to – but please liaise with the other groups to let them know. 

The use of the track for ACC riders will be covered by Club Funds but if you’re not up to date with your 2018 ACC membership subscriptions then you will need to pay £3.50  on the evening.  We will also be welcoming along to join us as well some riders from the following groups – please ensure you bring along £3.50 on the evening:-

Uttoxeter Cyling Club, Monday Beginner Riders, Friday Breeze Cycling Group

Any queries please contact Marie or any of the other committee members.  Look forward to seeing you there   🙂
