BMX club Cluster Sessions start at the Olympic VeloPark, this Tuesday!

The BMX club cluster sessions start at the Olympic VeloPark, this Tuesday, February 17th, 7:30pm – 9pm.

Nathaniel Martin will kick-start the sessions which will then run every Tuesday (7pm – 9pm), with Saturday morning sessions (9am – 11am) also starting on March 7th.

Here’s a great way to get a ride on the best local track around… Well, that depends on where you live I suppose but if you are already a member of a London based BMX Club and you can get along either days or both you should make the trip.  Thinking ahead, you could get some practice in for the London BMX Champs in October

It also represents a good saving on the normal entry cost of Standard £15 Concession £9, although if your not a member of a club you might have to pay to sign up to your local club for the year go a few times and it’ll be worth it. Typical memberships cost vary from club to club but we’ll tell you how to get signed up for free soon…

There no mention of it to be seen so we’re assuming height (age over 10’s) isn’t a problem, Minimum height 127cm / 4ft 2in normally applies to VeloPark bookings so if you’re normally too small to rock up and ride this might just make your day.

Cost & equipment:

£5.00 per person per session*

£1.00 each for bike and/or helmet, if needed

• To hire equipment riders will have to complete the standard venue’s equipment hire form.

Riders will pay this fee at reception, and be given a wristband.

  • Volunteers at the track will check riders have a wristband before allowing them to sign in.
  • Riders should give their wristband back to the coach at the end of the session.

*Max of 30 riders per session.
