A rare opportunity to ride your recumbent (or anything else that meets the safety requirements) on an indoor velodrome, this has now been opened up to non-BHPC members.  I did this a couple of years ago, and it was brilliant fun.

TBH, it's worth it just to watch the looks on the natives' faces as they go from "wtf is that?" to "bloody hell how fast?"

Just to close this thread, all places are now taken.

I'll be there getting dizzy and feeling the G's, probably feeling a bit  :sick: near the end of each race!

Were the natives suitably awed?

Less so than usual, on account of Slash not being present to set any lap records.
