[Velodrome]

Matt, Owen and I went to the Newport Velodrome today. It’s a fantastic facility. They run a drop in session for novices — two of us had never ridden at a velodrome before. You just bring cycling kit and a helmet. They supply coaching, bicycles and gloves.

It’s some thrill when you start climbing the sloping banks at the corners of the track. Keep pedalling and you’ll be fine, the coach said. I kept pedalling!
