brilliant velodrome, a 15 minute walk from the aquatics centre and arcelor mittal tower. you can hire bikes, or have taster sessions around the arena. staff are helpful and finish off with a coffee looking down to the track itself.

All visitors to the Lee Valley are warned to be careful with parking. I have no idea what the Park Authority thinks it’s doing but fines of £100 for not paying a £2.50 ticket in the countryside are both antisocial and ill considered. Whoever thought...More

Not sure about the price as it was a voucher job, but I recall that I thought it was not at all expensive. We booked an 0800hrs start on a Saturday - we were surprised how far in advance it was booked up
