We are pleased to announce we have secured x2 1 hour sessions at the Olympic Velodrome at the Queen Elizabeth Park

Each session will have 8 members, so in total we have only 16 places

Due to demand, places will be reserved on a first come first serve bases. To secure you chance to ride the boards our GB Team rode on, you need to get your name and money to Steve at Aerocycles. Sorry but no money, means no place.

The cost is £30, but ALL members will only have to pay £20, as the club will contribute £10 towards each members costs.

Further to the above:
1) As mentioned before, their bikes will only take Look Keo cleats. If you don't have them or cannot beg, borrow or buy some, trainers are acceptable. You can also hire a pair of shoes at a cost of £6.00.
2) Payment to Steve must be either in cash of cheque made payable to H.C.C. as this is a club event and cannot go through Aerocycles books.
3) Once payment has been made it is not refundable unless YOU find a replacement. We don't want to be in a position where someone cancels a day before and expects a refund...otherwise I will be out of pocket.
4) When booking and paying please give your height to Steve as the Velodrome need this information for getting the correct size bike for you.
