A Day at the Track

Your chance to ride the world famous Olympic Stadium.On Tuesday 9th December Ipswich Bicycle Club have been lucky enough to
secure two track taster sessions at The Olympic Velodrome, Stratford.

The track Taster Session involves an hours introduction to track cycling where you will be coached in the use of a fixed wheel bike and the basic skills required to safely ride the Velodrome track. This is a one-off experience which can also form stage 1 of the accreditation
pathway for riders wishing to progress to racing.

These sessions provide the ideal way to kick-start your experience at the world’s finest cycling
venue. The  taster session will cater for up to 16 riders per session of mixed experience and abilities.

The taster session costs £30 per person, this includes the bike and helmet hire – but if you would like to bring your own helmet, please feel free. You are required to bring gloves and cycling shoes with look keo cleats. If you do not have look based cleats, shoe hire is available at an extra cost at the venue  or you can use trainers with toe strap peddles. There are two taster sessions booked on the day, one at 11.30am and the other at 12.30pm, after which we will have some lunch.

We will be getting a coach, which will be leaving Crown Pools layby on Tuesday the 9th December at  8.30am (TBC) and arriving back around 5pm. The coach will cost £14 per person.
