HIBC hit the boards of Lee Valley Olympic Velodrome - HIBC
A fantastic evening of team riding and fun racing was had by about 20 HIBC club riders who got to enjoy a 2 hour track session at the Lee Valley Velodrome in May 2023.
The group was split into two, and a series of chain-gang style pursuit team riding, and fun mini races was held with 2 coaches from the Lee Valley Velopark.
Any nerves about pedalling up the banked curves were quickly swept away. Everyone got used to their fixed wheel bikes provided at the venue.
The session was not really about racing, but about learning to ride the wooden boards of a 250m velodrome under different group and individual conditions.
It was tremendous fun, and there will be another opportunity for members in the future – we’ve applied for another session in September. Watch this space!
