Herne Hill Velodrome Cycling Experience

 

 

 

 

 

 

The excitement of the track is something every cyclist should experience.  Our track sessions give riders of all abilities the chance to not only learn the basics, but also experience the thrill of racing on a banked velodrome.  Over a three hour period our British Cycling coaches will take you through everything you need to know to make the most of the track.

It all ends with you putting your new skills to the test in a team pursuit, sprint or the scratch race.  With awards to end it is an afternoon of cycling not to be missed.
