A First Track Bike

You don’t have to spend a fortune on a first track bike.

A good track bike has a stiff frame, a strong pair of wheels and fast tyres. Stregnth and fit is more important than weight.

A wide variety of machines are ridden on Herne hill – classic steel frames remain the popular choice, with aluminium and carbon bikes now ridden by top racers.

Many club riders still race on steel bikes that have been around for 15 years & more.
