Haven never ridden this style of bike before, the staff were very helpful in showing us how the gears worked and how to adjust the bike seats to our liking. The £5 to use the track and £12 cycle and helmet hire was very reasonable....More

The taster session was a one-hour experience I will never forget. Andrew, our instructor explained the principles behind track cycling very well and got us progressively higher up the banking ending with a 20 minute "ride-around" at our own pace. This session was a gift...More

My husband and friend had an amazing time here, the facilities are amazing, the staff are wonderful and the experience was definitely worth every minute. Both want to go back at some point as they really enjoyed it.

A hidden tourist gem. You can wander in free of charge to see one of the historic venues from London 2012. The road circuit is good for quick laps. No stoppages or traffic so you can fly round!

Great fun, mixed ability group so not too much pressure to perform! Short safety and intro followed by about 20mins procession to get used to the slope and then 25mins free cycling. Bikes felt good, obviously well maintained and were clean and tidy. Can hire...More

Cannot recommend this more highly. Apart from being an amazing experience to ride on the Velodrome, the venue staff were outstanding in terms of helpfulness and professionalism. Our group numbered 8 and I was clearly the least frequent cyclist of them all. None of us...More

Not sure about the price as it was a voucher job, but I recall that I thought it was not at all expensive. We booked an 0800hrs start on a Saturday - we were surprised how far in advance it was booked up
