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.
