Track cycling and team building workshop

08 January 18


Track cycling is exhilarating, fast and fun and so is team building at our exciting new workshop.  With fixed gears and no brakes, learning to ride as a team on the track is vitally important.  It might sound daunting but newcomers whizz around the track in a group after some simple exercises.

The skills learned by riding as a group at speed around a velodrome can improve the performance of workplace teams.  Essential components of successful teams such as trust, communication, shared vision and mutual support are the same as those needed in a group of cyclists on the track.

By working on these essential elements of team work on the track, the real-life performance of the team can be powered up.

 

Our workshops are held at the iconic Lee Valley and Herne Hill Velodromes.  Lee Valley is where Team GB led the charge for gold at the 2012 London Olympics.  Herne Hill was host to the 1948 Olympic cycling events and where Sir Bradley Wiggins learned to race.

You can build your team using the same techniques as our famous cycling aristocracy, Sir Brad, Sir Chris Hoy and Dame Laura Kenny.

Here’s how a typical day works (but we can tailor it to your needs)

 

  • We start with a welcome to the day and a tour of the iconic Olympic venue.

 

  • The first session prepares people for riding on the track and the importance of team work.

 

  • Then onto the track for a session led by experienced cycling coaches. You’ll learn the basics of track riding, build trust as a group and experience the thrills following the golden wheels of Hoy and Kenny.

 

  • Lunch follows when you’ll have time to refuel and relax following your exertions on the track.

 

  • The afternoon session allows reflection on learning from the track to improve performance in work teams. This session will be led by experienced workshop facilitators.

 

A great team building day out with real life lessons to improve performance back in the workplace.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Whilst working as a Partner at Foot Anstey, I worked with Norman on a number of projects, including a complex negotiation on a £multi-million, multi-stakeholder local authority contract. The whole collaboration benefitted from the fact that Norman knows how to listen to others and when to speak and act, and was always quick to grasp the technical detail of (often complex) issues and hone in on pragmatic, viable solutions. I can unequivocally say that whomever Norman works with is lucky to have his attention and his insights.  The fact that he’s a nice guy on top of that is a welcome bonus!
