Cycling at the iconic Herne Hill Velodrome

7 lucky children in year 6 had an amazing day cycling at the iconic Herne Hill Velodrome.  The bike track was used in the first post WW2 Olympics in 1948 and is where Olympic gold medal winners Bradley Wiggins and Laura Trott rode as children. The children were introduced to track bikes which have no brakes and fixed wheels which means they can't stop until the rider is going really slowly and can grab  the railings. Our lucky 7 were taught how to start, stop and ride round the track including up the steep sides.  The even finished the day with a "pursuit" style race.
