Twickenham CC has a number of riders enthusiastic about riding/racing on the track. Some just do track training sessions for the sheer joy and excitement of it, while others compete at everything from a monthly veterans’ league up to National Championships at seniors and masters levels.
The club keeps three good-quality track bikes of various sizes at Herne Hill Velodrome for members to use once they have passed Herne Hill’s training accreditation.
There are occasional club sessions, usually at Lee Valley Velodrome, although we have also done these at Herne Hill, Newport, and Calshot. Since there are some very experienced track riders among our number, advice about any aspect of track riding is usually easily available.
There is also a social side – we often get a group of members going to events like the Good Friday Meeting at Lee Valley Velodrome, or the Herne Hill Velodrome’s Wednesday Track League to enjoy the racing, the atmosphere, and to cheer-on our clubmates!
