Lee Valley Velodrome

On 23rd May BCC took over the Olympic Park velodrome. 30 of our members enjoyed riding the same boards where so many gold medals were won by Team GB during the 2012 Olympic Games.

The place is incredible, and you can’t help feeling the presence of great names like Wiggins, Cavendish, Hoy, Pendleton, Clancy, Trott, King, Archibald, Kenny and so many others who have graced this venue with their very superior presence. After just a handful of laps your whole perspective changes and suddenly it becomes clear just how super-human those characters are. Believe me, it’s hard work.
