Track Taster Sessions at Wales National Velodrome

1 hour on-track Introduction, just £20.60

Introduction to the exciting discipline of Track Cycling in a safe and structured environment. Skills will be introduced to allow riders to lap the steeply banked wooden track and gain a "Flying 250m" time to compare with the professionals.

Bike and helmet rental included as well as a free pair of cycling gloves! Please wear cycle shorts or leggings, and ensure shoulders are covered. Sports clothing is ideal, as anything baggy will slow you down! 

Group size is small to allow both adult and young people to take their first pedal strokes in an enjoyable way. This session leads into a full beginner course which takes place on a Monday evening.

Sessions are held on various days and at various times; please contact 01633 656757 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss your options. 10 riders maximum, no restriction on adult or child over 10.

WOMEN'S-ONLY SESSIONS will run throughout August, in partnership with Welsh Cycling! Join our Facebook event page and invite your friends!

We're also running Youth Yellow Jersey Track Tasters for your 10-14 year olds who have been inspired by Geraint Thomas! Geraint has ridden the boards throughout his career - most notably during the 2008 and 2012 Team GB Olympic Training Camps. He went onto win Gold in both Olympics in the Team Pursuit.

Youth Yellow Jersey Sessions are for young people aged 10-14 and are one hour long, running from 10-11am and 11-12pm on Sunday 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th August. Sessions cost £12.50 per person, which includes bike and helmet hire. Welsh Cycling will supply gloves, which are essential for riding the track.

Booking is essential, so please call 01633 656757 or visit to secure your space.
