At last, we’ll be staging the first 'RCUK Reader's Track Session’ at Newport Velodrome. We’ve booked nine hours on the track, managed to get top Welsh Coach Courtney Rowe to provide tuition, and of course you’ll be able to ride against the team behind RCUK.

Don’t worry if you’ve never ridden on the track, it’s open to beginners as well as more experienced track riders. We’ll be splitting the sessions up into smaller chunks so beginners can go on with other learners, and we’ll be staging some races towards the end of the sessions, once all the riders have found their track feet.

All this will only cost you £10 (per session), which we think you’ll agree is a bargain. There’s two available sessions, 6-9pm on Sunday 26 February, and 7am-1pm on Monday 27 February. Choose one, or even better book a hotel and come to both. If you’re interested, email and we’ll get back to you. Places are limited to just 30, so be quick.
