Awesome day in the sun at the Herne Hill Velodrome last week. Twenty-eight riders from five Haringey primary schools took part in a day of coaching and racing at this historic former Olympic venue.
Children learnt to use track bikes on the banked course, riding close together, swapping turns at the front of the group… culminating in a very close pursuit race. Amazing confidence and ability shown by everyone. As one rider put it: “That was the best day ever!”
The racing didn’t count for League points, so the standings remain the same.
The next event will be grass track racing at Bruce Castle Park on 8th June.
