A track bike is the simplest of all racing bikes - one gear, no brakes and no fear! On next year's track day, you can have the loan of a track bike for the session, there will be one available in your size! Bring your own pedals, shoes and helmet!

A guide to Track cycling in the UK

If you want to progress and improve your track cycling, get a suitable track bike as soon as possible. The (seat tube) frame size can be 2 cms more than your road bike size. Bike storage is possible at Lee Valley Velodrome, but is expensive and has high demand. A starter track bike (new) is £450 + but there are pre-loved options on Facebook.

Race officials can also get some track time in with Taster sessions in between the Championship events if you want to try track riding, but not racing!
