Bike Club Take a Trip to Wales National Velodrome

Earlier this month Mr. Williams took the RGS Bike Club to the Wales National Velodrome in Newport for a fantastic cycling experience.  The students had a 3-hour session on the velodrome track with top cycling coach Steve Bonnici, as well the exciting opportunity to meet Rebecca Romero, who won gold in the 2008 UCI Track Cycling World Championships.

The Wales National Velodrome is one of only two internationally recognised indoor velodromes in Britain and its’ spectacularly banked 250m cycle track regularly plays home to British National competitions and is regularly used by the British National team for practice sessions.

This opportunity would not have been possible without the support of FORGS who gave the Bike Club £280 to fund the trip – the school and the Bike Club in particular would like to say a big thank you to FORGS for their support.
