Lee Valley Regional Park Authority appointed the hospitality and event agent as one of its preferred suppliers to offer businesses and individuals the opportunity to cycle within the London 2012 Olympics track cycling venue, located in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Cycling experiences include either exclusive half-day or day-long use of the track for large numbers and one or two-hour exclusive sessions on the track for small groups of 10-16 people.

Jim Bignal, chairman of The Cavendish Group, said: "Over the past 18 months, many of our clients have asked us about the opportunities available at Lee Valley VeloPark’s Velodrome. Now we are able to offer them a truly unique opportunity to ride this iconic track on an exclusive basis with a range of time options from a one-hour exclusive use of the track, for smaller groups, to half and one-day usage."

Cavendish will also be able to offer the VeloPark’s 9km mountain bike trail, the Olympic BMX track and the 1.6km floodlit road circuit on an exclusive basis.
