Brilliantly organised and good instruction. You do need to be a pretty confident and stress no rider to get the most out of the experience. We found riding around the very steep banking on fixed wheel bikes with no brakes and 18 people close together...More

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!

Parking at Stratford International is a ten minute walk. Lots of restaurants in the Olympic Park or Westfield depending on what you're looking for.
