AMV Accreditation Program

 

Welcome to the Rider Accreditation Program of the Anna Meares Velodrome!

The Rider Accreditation Program is a mandatory process for all riders to complete prior to riding on their own or in a group, club or open session format on the indoor velodrome. The accreditation program has been designed to ensure all riders have the necessary skills to utilise the Velodrome safely. 

Upcoming Accreditation Sessions:

January 2018

  • Monday 15th January 12.00pm-1.00pm
  • Saturday 20th January 8.00am-9.00am
  • Monday 22nd January 12.00pm-1.00pm
  • Friday 26th January 8.00am-9.00am
  • Monday 29th January 12.00pm-1.00pm

 

Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, the accreditation program is a simple process which will cater to your individual needs as a rider.

There are three levels to the accreditation program and your riding experience will dictate the level of accreditation that you will be required to go through:

Level 1:

If you’re a beginner cyclist or have no experience on an indoor velodrome, you will be required to go through a level 1 accreditation program, which takes one hour to complete. During this session you will be taught the necessary skills to ride safely on the indoor velodrome. 

Level 2:

If you’re an intermediate cyclist who has some, but limited, riding experience on an indoor velodrome, you will be required to go through a level 2 accreditation program which takes 20 mins to complete. During this session you will be required to demonstrate your riding abilities in a closed group environment. 

Level 3: 

If you’re an experienced cyclist who has frequent indoor velodrome riding experience and has competently ridden on a variety of indoor tracks, you will only be required to complete a level 3 or direct accreditation form. In completing this form, you will need to outline your experience through events or training sessions in which you have regularly ridden on the indoor facility over the past 5 years. 

***Once you have successfully gone through an accreditation session, or completed the direct accreditation form, your details will be added to the Queensland rider database and you will be able to participate in a range of sessions including but not limited to: Club and Open Training Sessions. Once you have developed a sound level of skill by completing a series of open and club training sessions (beyond the Accreditation program), you may want to consider participating in race events. 

What to Bring: 

Existing Riders: 

  • Riders are to bring their own track bike (which satisfied international safety standards and technical regulations)
