Scottish Cycling to host an event at LEAP Sport's Festival Fortnight 2018


What: Track Taster

When: Sunday 10th June 2018 – 09:00-13:00

Where: Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome

Scottish Cycling is very pleased to announce that we, in collaboration with Glasgow Life, are getting involved with this year’s Festival Fortnight. Festival Fortnight is Scotland's only lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) sports festival and is coordinated by LEAP Sports. Aiming to increase the visibility and participation of LGBTI people in Scottish sport and provide opportunities to raise awareness of LGBTI issues within sport, the festival provides a mixture of sporting, cultural, academic and social events and activities.

We will be hosting a beginner’s session on the Track which will be suitable and fun for all levels of bike riders. As long as you can ride a bike, this session will have something for you. The time on the track will be combined with a break out session in the Track Centre to discuss how you can get into cycling. This is a FREE event and will be led by Scottish Cycling Sprint and Para Coach David Daniell. David has recently returned from the Gold Coast following a very successful Commonwealth Games for Team Scotland on the Track. He is looking forward to leading this session and being part of this festival.

Some of the Scottish Cycling Development Team will then lead the break out session which is for you to learn about how to get into cycling and about all the different disciplines. It will also be an excellent opportunity for us to hear from you about your experiences within cycling and what would motivate you to participate more.

*To participate in this session, you must be able to ride a bicycle.*
