Whether you are an experienced cyclist or not, find out how to start your track cycling journey at the Geraint Thomas National Velodrome of Wales.
Adult Intro To Track (Stage 1)
A 1 hour on-track introduction to the exciting discipline of track cycling.
Led by a British Cycling qualified coach, riders will learn how to control a fixed-wheel bike without brakes before venturing onto the steeply banked wooden track in the footsteps of Olympic athletes!
Participants need to be able to ride a bike, but the coach will progress riders at their own pace. The group size is small to allow both adults and young people to take their first pedal strokes in an enjoyable way.
This is the first step of our track cycling accreditation pathway.
Suitable for ages 14+.
Friday: 5 - 6pm
Tuesday: 9 - 10pm
Sunday: See the What's On timetable or app for session times
Cost: £21.60 includes bike and shoe hire.
Adult Beginners Session (Stage 2)
An ideal drop-in session for those who have completed the Intro To Track (Stage 1) session and are looking to bed in skills and improve fitness before moving on to the Improver (Stage 3) session.
The session can be used as a drop-in session for riders with Intro To Track (Stage 1) accreditation or by riders looking to gain confidence as well as practice their skills and techniques.
Riders must have ridden the track prior to attending the session either via a Club session or the Intro to Track (Stage 1) session. No new riders will be allowed to attend the session.
Monday: 7 - 8:30 pm
Cost: £16.20 includes bike and shoe hire.

Youth Track Attack
Weekly drop-in sessions for 9 - 14 year olds that will allow riders to work towards their track accreditation at their own pace in a safe and structured environment with a fully qualified, friendly coach.
Riders will receive a card that will be stamped each time they attend a session to track and mark off their progress.
Completion of the course will allow riders to access Youth Development Session on a Saturday morning.
