Lee Valley VeloPark Cycling Experience

January 24th, 2018

In January 2015 we had the pleasure of bringing together some of our clients for a unique afternoon experience at the Lee Valley VeloPark. The event turned out to be a huge success and was so popular amongst our clients that we knew it was something that we had to do again.

On Thursday 18th January 2018 we hired the VeloPark’s track yet again to give a lucky group the chance to experience the rush and thrill of cycling at this iconic location.

The velodrome was originally built for the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games. The 250m long track, with intimidating 45 degree banking, was where Team GB won nine medals at the Track Cycling events.

 

 

Our event was attended by people with different cycling abilities, both beginners and experienced cycling enthusiasts.

The session kicked off at 3.45pm with a safety briefing after which our riders mounted the bikes and began an hour-long experience. Throughout the entire session the VeloPark coaches were giving advice on cycling techniques and tips on how not slide down the steep bank!

The event gave all the cyclists the opportunity to complete a series of laps around the famous circuit with the fastest times recorded. It was also a great opportunity for like-minded peers to have fun and network in a relaxed, yet stimulating and fun, environment.

Many thanks to everyone who joined us on the day and congratulations on the fantastic times completed!
