Accreditation and practice sessions in just one week!

Did you dust off the track bike yet? (or maybe you’ve been busy at the velodrome all winter). Regardless, it’s going to need to be in tip-top shape soon as the accreditation sessions (for those who need it) and practice sessions (for those who do not) are just over a week away!

Wednesdays April 5th and 12th, weather pending, will see the sessions meet at around 6pm for sign on and getting organised, and then begin around 6:30.

Remember, you must be SCRL accredited to use the track for practice during these sessions. There will be no fee for those simply practicing.

Also please be aware that we are limited to 30 fixed gear riders at once on the track, and so availability of the track for practice may be affected by the number that turn up. Those doing the accreditation will take priority, obviously.

While you are at it, why not get your registration completed online and get that sorted ahead of time at the session?

Hope to see you there!

P.S. We still need volunteers for many positions at the track meetings. Please drop an email to with availability dates and any of the jobs you will/won’t do if you can help out.

The league cannot run without volunteers!


Racing returns on April 19th 2017!

It’s here! The 2017 schedule is now in the events calendar along with the accreditation and early registration/ warmup sessions on April 1st and 8th.

This year also sees the launch of both a veterans and womens championship series one Friday a month from May through August and an all categories road (circuit) racing series one Friday a month from May through to July

There are also training sessions planned on most Fridays that the track is not being used (details tbc).

So lots of events and disciplines to keep you busy over the summer!

Please also remember that the league is entirely volunteer run. Please see our volunteering page and sign yourself up, otherwise the league cannot be run!


First Week Rained Off

What a shame, after waiting all this time for the track to be ready along comes the rain.

Oh well – there are 14 more weeks.



We are delighted to announce that Preston Park Bike Track is once again a British Cycling accredited race venue.  With no time to waste, a new track league series promoted by Sussex Cycle Race League (SCRL) will start on Wednesday 18th May 2016 at 6.45pm and then every Wednesday through to mid August.


For those who have raced the SCRL Wednesday night series in previous years, a warm up and registration session will be held at the track on Wednesday 11th May from 6.30 – 8.00pm.


For those wishing to participate in the Wednesday track league for the first time, new riders are very welcome and SCRL will run be running a number of accreditation sessions at the track, starting on Friday 13th May at 6pm. This will give riders the opportunity to ask questions, learn the essential rules, skills and etiquette of track racing as well as promote a safer race environment.

Bike rental: a limited number of bikes will be available to rent for the sessions.

This actually applies to any rider who has not raced fixed wheel before so anyone riding in the Under 10 in 2014 who has now moved up to under 12 and fixed wheel will need to have been accredited.


This year the registration fee is £5 as you will need to sign a registration form.  For anyone that raced in 2014 or 2013 we will have a printed copy of your form available at the track.  All you will have to do is check it, make any updates then sign (and pay the fee of course).  Otherwise you will have to complete a form at the track or complete your membership details here.
