London Velodrome

Hosted by Reading-based solicitors Field Seymour Parkes, Black Stanniland’s Jamie Stirling-Aird had the chance to see what it was like to don the lycra and complete some laps on the Lee Valley Velo Park. The location was host to GB’s medal winning cycling team at the London 2012 Games and proved an exhilarating experience for all involved. Jamie’s timed ‘flying lap’ at 18.655 seconds seemed reasonable enough until you consider Ed Clancy’s time in the Olympics 2012 was 12.556 seconds – over a 250 metre track!
