When can we start booking dates? Because I would be interested in block booking six dates for club training ASAP

What's up Alan, couldn't you sleep?

Great session yesterday.

I love (hate) the irony that there's a good chance Derby may well be open before London!!

No I couldn't to be honest..... :cry:

Its hard to believe that the next session will be mid point in our sessions again.

Not sure yet but as soon as we are we'll notify everyone through various channels. When is London due to open?

Just in case you didn't know, Bowmer and Kirkland have organised a cycle safety event next week at the arena site http://www.changingplacesday.co.uk

There'll be a street velodrome circuit so if you fancy having a race then come along.

I was at the site yesterday, it's progressing as per the timescale, the eyelid window above the entrance has started having the glazing put in and the glazing is going in at the actual entrance. You can now see that the layer of plywood is now being fitted to the exterior.
