Race Day: Herne Hill Women’s Track League

After not racing track in ages I finally made it up to Herne Hill for Assos LDN’s Women’s Track League. With multiple categories, heaps of races, prizes, beer and good vibes, it was top fun!

I managed to win a prime and the Scratch race even though the Team Time Trial was a complete disaster. But that’s bike racing, sometimes it goes to plan, sometimes it doesn’t and if it was easy, it wouldn’t be half as fun.


The experience inspired me to write a post for ASSOS all about track racing and the myths that surround this fun discipline. Have a read of my article ‘Track Cycling Myths Debunked’ and let me know what you think in the comments below. Hopefully if you’re teetering on the edge, wondering whether to try racing on the Velodrome it might encourage you to take the plunge. I promise you won’t regret it!

Huge thanks to everyone that puts these races on and supports them. Herne Hill are doing great things for women’s bike racing.
