Have you ever been tempted to try cycling on the track in a velodrome? Most of us have seen Olympic athletes whizzing around in circles and making it look easy, but riding on the track is actually significantly different than riding on the road! No brakes, no gears, and no freehub mean that track bikes can be quite difficult to get used to.
As an ex-pro track rider with heaps of experience, Manon is the perfect person to take us through some top things you should and shouldn’t do on a velodrome to make sure you stay upright and safe.
