JWCC / Jets Sessions at SCHV

Recommended Posts

Any interest in COVID compliant track sessions at SCHV?

I’ve been in discussions with Glasgow Life and they will be re-validating, rather than re-accrediting, fully accredited riders.

The first session will be this revalidation. The following sessions will be run as Club sessions

Fully accredited riders with own bikes / kit only as Hire Station will not be open

Sessions will likely be Monday 7pm-9pm

Please confirm interest below before Saturday 15th May

58, how long will they give us for the accreditation lapsing? Not been for a good few years.

The track at the moment don’t remove accreditation yet for time away from the track, they have wanted to introduce such a system but haven’t yet ,

Looks like this’ll be stalled for a few weeks but could also do with a few more bodies



If needing some more numbers would it be possible to have some guest riders too? Know quite a few track regulars who would be more than happy to make up the numbers if there is some space

I have completed accreditation and, if I can arrange a bike, I'd definitely be interested.

What kind of sessions do you normally run? I did a few of the drop-ins using a hire bike: some were fine but, for faster work, the gearing meant I was just spinning out and getting dropped.

Looks like more than probable that there will be a delay to the track opening, it’s likely to depend on the FM announcement on C19 levels for Glasgow at the end of the week but with current case numbers being high it looks like Glasgow staying in Level 3

An update 

Glasgow Life will be making an announcement and going live tomorrow for track bookings through their systems.

In the first instance, all fully accredited riders will need to go through a 1hr revalidation session under Glasgow Life coaches. This will be a refresh of accred 1-4 skills

Once riders have been revalidated they’ll be able to book onto Coach-led sessions run by Glasgow Life (being announced tomorrow) and they’ll also be able to attend Club Coached Sessions.

Separately, I have secured 2hrs on the 14th June for rider revalidation (19:00-21:00). The first hour is for u16’s. The second hour is for 16yrs + and is limited to 6 places.

There are a few places available for JWCC members. Cost is £10. Must have own bike and kit and already have full accreditation

First come first served
