After a very early start from Aberystwyth, 18 riders made their way by coach to the Wales National Velodrome in Newport. This was the first time for most of us, so we were not sure what to expect. We arrived in plenty of time to be sized for our track bikes. With no gears and brakes, some of us were feeling a touch nervous! After making our way to the centre of the track we were met by our coach for the session, Steve Marshall.
Steve was fantastic and gave us a great briefing and introduction to the track and bikes. We spent the three-hour session with Steve gradually and safely increasing our confidence and skills with everyone getting higher each time around the track. The three hours flew by so quickly!
This was a great experience and thoroughly recommended – we all wished we lived closer!
