If you’ve never ridden on the Grassroots Trust Velodrome and want to give it a try, then yes, absolutely, you can Have-a Go!
We offer introductory sessions to give anyone the chance to have a go at track cycling. This could be your first ever go on a velodrome and can be a one-off taster session to see if it’s for you; maybe the start of your process to gaining full track accreditation, or just something that you want to tick off your bucket list so to speak. Whatever your reason, we make it do-able and easy.
Our Have-a Go session is a one hour, track based session which provides you with basic knowledge on how to ride a track bike and the opportunity to experience riding on the velodrome. One of our accredited and experienced Grassroots Trust Velodrome coaches will fit you with a bike and helmet and will expertly guide you at your pace, through your session on the track.
Don’t worry, at this stage you won’t be heading way up and experiencing the full banking of the track… but it will give you a taste of what to expect. And yes, anyone can do it – provided you are at least 10yrs old and 135cm (for safety reasons so you can reach the pedals and handlebars on our bikes).
Not for you, rather someone else you know? Enquire about our Have-a-Go gift vouchers.
$25 per person. Includes a one hour session, bike, helmet and coach. Please note: We need a minimum of five people to run a Have a Go session. Bookings are essential and need to be made at least 24 hours in advance. We do allow bookings on the day if there is space and enough people for the session to go ahead.
Grassroots Trust Velodrome Have-a Go sessions run regularly in the weekends with sessions on a Saturday and Sunday morning that are available for individuals to book.
