Cycle the hallowed indoor track of the Lee Valley VeloPark, home of the cycling events at London 2012, and meet one of Great Britain's brilliant Gold medallists at a special Q A session after your time on the track. The velodrome at the Lee Valley VeloPark played host to all of the indoor cycling events at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, seeing the numerous successes of our own British athletes played out on its boards. After getting cycle-ready and picking up a site-provided bike you can rip around the track yourself and get a taste of cycling glory, with the session culminating in a Flying Lap to find the best cyclists in the group. After the cycling session is over you'll get to meet a genuine athlete who represented Great Britain, both for photos and to take part in a mini awards ceremony for the fastest cyclist round the track. You'll learn all about a successful professional athlete's career, and what it takes to become a champion, during an intimate Q A session and trackside buffet meal. This is a rare opportunity, so make sure you've got some questions prepared ' how often do you get to meet an Olympian?
Need to Know
On arrival at the Lee Valley VeloPark you'll need to report to reception before being directed to the changing rooms and shown where to pick up your cycling equipment (though you'll need to provide your own clothing). Once you're all togged up it's time to hit the track for a cycling session, culminating in a flying lap for those who want to test their speed against their fellow cyclists. Once everyone's off the track you'll get to meet a GB gold medallist and have your photo taken with them before a mini awards ceremony with medals awarded to the best cyclists of the group. Then it'll be time for a buffet and a Q and A with the British champion. All riders will get to take home a signed photo of them and the day's athlete as well as other unique souvenirs, so you can continue to show off to all your friends well after the event.
