PRESTON PARK VELODROME RUN/BIKE - Bikes and helmets required

There will be a park run/velodrome bike session this weekend.

Registration will be at the The Chalet Café in the middle of Preston Park.

This will be marshalled by the volunteers from Preston Park Junior Park Run.  If you wish get an official Park Run time then please register with the Junior Park Run web site: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/prestonpark-juniors/ alternatively we will record our own times.

After the 2Km park run we will then move across to the Velodrome.  Access to the Velodrome is via several gates around the perimeter of the track.  The bike session will concentrate on bike handling skills, transition and cycling in groups.

Please bring bikes and don't forget to check the tyre pressures beforehand and helmets!  We run a strict 'no helmet, no ride' policy so please just double check before you leave.  If you need to leave your bike unattended during the session we recommend you bring a bike lock.

Parents can view from the Preston Park Velodrome stand.  Directions and information about the velodrome can be found here: http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/content/leisure-and-libraries/parks-and-green-spaces/cycling-preston-park-velodrome
