Not that strong on two-wheels, but would still like to support the cause? Not only can you come along on the day and cheer loudly, you can choose an individual rider or the whole team effort to support. Every pound raised will kick off our Playground Refurbishment Project and be hugely appreciated by our riders. No doubt your support will REALLY spur them on while racing 'round the oval.
Click the donate button below and enter your rider's name when prompted to add a note. Or just put "TEAM" if your sponsorship is non-rider-specific.
Due to Velodrome safety regulations the cap for adult riders on the track at anytime is 45.
Riders will be split into three groups.
15 riders - 1 hour
15 riders - 30 minutes

Parent & Carer Involvement
Grown-ups must remain on-site at all times. Grown-ups, please track your child’s laps. After their laps, volunteers will help enter their data into Umbelli to count towards our collective kilometres.
Adult riders will need a wearable fitness device to track laps.
All pedal bikes are welcome. Please note non pedal bikes, or gliders will not be allowed to bike on the centre track. Non - electric bikes only.
Helmets are required. Herne Hill Velodrome does not provide helmets.
If your child would like to borrow a bike, Herne Hill Velodrome has Frog bikes, in a variety of sizes, to lend. Under 8’s only. First come, first served. Please arrive no later than 4:00 to secure a bike for the afternoon.
Please bring water bottle, water refills available on the track.

Not Looking to cycle?
Don’t worry! In addition to cheering on the riders, we will have on-site activities happening as well. There will be a BBQ, Jolly Jar Stall, Glitter Tattoos, Oddono's , a Lucky Dip and Toy Sale!
Bring all the kiddos, make an afternoon of it with plenty of activities to hold their interest, while feeding them tea! Win-win!
