About this Event

Darker evenings – not a problem, there’s plenty to do indoors!

Inside is the place to be when the rain hits, the temperature drops and it’s dark when you leave work!

The bright lights of Derby Arena beckon for the outdoor cyclists who still want to get their pedalling fix without the need for their bike lights, shoe covers and waterproofs. Getting on the track is so easy thanks to the 4-step accreditation process where a coach will take you from beginner to a wannabe Jason or Laura Kenney!
