What equipment do I need to ride on the Velodrome?
The bikes are all equipped with toe clips and straps, so you just need to wear flat soled shoes, such as trainers. Helmets are also available to hire for the same cost as the bike hire, but you can bring your own. You need to wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions and track mitts / long finger gloves depending on the season.

What is the process for signing onto a session?

What is accreditation and how do I become accredited?
