In February this year Phil Whitehorn organised a very successful club track evening at Lee Valley Velodrome.

Around 40 riders were present and rode as two groups – each group getting three 20 minute blocks of track time. Group one was for beginners (and the not so confident). Lee Valley had instructors on hand and all riders were thoroughly briefed and then supervised through some basic track exercises. As the evening progressed the group got more confident riding fixed, in a group and on the high banking!

Group two was for the experienced track riders – all the Crest track specialists were present and made the whole thing look effortless (some impressive warm up routines; riding fixed on rollers!).

The club have an annual track night and if there is enough interest we will endeavour to make them a bit more regular. Big thanks from everyone to Phil for arranging.
