Last night Sheffield Uni Cycling Club went to the Velodrome in Manchester - good choice given the ice rink that is Sheffield at the moment!
My friend Helen has been telling me to try track racing for a while, so was good to have a try at riding a track first! The first couple of laps were a little scary, especially getting used to the concept of not turning the handlebars yet going round in a circle!

Once I was sure my bike was staying on track on the bends it was a matter of building up and eventually riding around the top of the bends and dropping down for max acceleration. It was awesome fun and I can't wait to go back! :-)
