  4. Once on track you will be allocated an instructor and moved to you reserved cycle.
  5. Riders in need of a helmet will be able to obtain one from our supply (helmets must not be shared and returned to the “used” box after the session)
  6. Bicycle adjustment will be carried out by instructors – riders must not be on the cycle whilst these works are carried out (instructors will wear a face mask, gloves and clean the area worked on with alcoholic wipes)
  7. Assisting riders onto or off of a cycle, must be carried out by family members or support staff of the rider.
  8. As is per usual at Wheels For All Horsham, all riders must travel in an anti-clockwise direction on the track. An allocated instructor will remain with the rider’s group throughout the session.
  9. When passing other groups on track, ensure that a gap in excess of 2 metres is kept. If this is not possible, the group must wait until appropriate. Groups may ring bells to alert other groups of their presence.
  10. Wheels For All Emergency procedure and first aid response will remain in place as normal. If either is required, please alert the nearest Wheels For All instructor.

At the conclusion on training, please return your cycle to the allocated area for used cycle storage. We must ensure the hour-long training session ends promptly on time.

Once your session is over, we respectfully ask each group to vacate the track as soon as possible, in order to avoid any crowding in the pit/waiting area.

Wheels for All regulars will notice that we will no longer provide refreshments to attendees.

We must ask any family members/support staff not riding to wait in the grandstand seating area. Each group will be given their own area to wait in.
