First timer shares experience of riding on our track

We have received a kind review from first time track user Steve Holton about his experience of using our facility and the coaching he received from our instructor Simon, take a look below.

Approximately ten weeks ago l hadn’t been on an indoor track before. During that time Simon (track cycling coach) has gradually and meticulously introduced me to track cycling taken me through the various levels of accreditation and recently introduced me to SQT's. I have also witnessed him applying the same level of expert coaching to many other first-time and returning track cyclist.

Both on and off the track Simon is an excellent communicator, he has a pictorial and simplistic way of help you with technical points and safely elements of riding a track. Many of the other cyclist l speak to say he gives them the confidence to try exercises they wouldn’t normally have tried. Whether or not you are taking part in one of his classes he will always help.

It isn’t very often you receive exceptional coaching and customer service from someone who is not only passionate about his sport but making sure everyone he coaches is treated with respect and has opportunities to achieve their goals.

If you would like to give our cycling track a go you can find out more about the sport and how to get involved via our New Riders webpage.
