Teach and old man a new trick

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Various cycling programs at Herne Hill means a space for everyone, including ‘old man’ racing.

“I am just an old man on a bike who enjoys a bit of riding. I never raced before but I live around the corner. I am embarrassed that my kids have been on this track more times than I have been. This is my first time on this track. So, an old man on a bike on a Thursday morning is good fun.”

Photographer’s notes: To be clear, this is a bicycle track and the riders use fixed gear track bikes that are stored in nearby containers. If you do not own a track bike, no problem. Just rent and ride. Bring your helmet.
