Corporate Cycling

Where to meet?

We collect you from your hospitality venue in Manchester, or the Etihad Stadium if that is your start point and take you to the HSBC UK National Cycling Centre. The briefing and information for your guests starts whilst travelling!

Where to go?

At the NCC reception, you collect your helmet, cycling shoes and your transponder. Riders then change into cycling kit, and go to the track centre, where the mechanic has your bike ready.

Minimum health requirements?

All riders must have the ability to ride a two wheeled bike unaided, and sufficient fitness and health to ride for the 1-hour session.

The track bike hire fleet

All of the Dolan hire bikes have a fixed wheel, one gear and no brakes. Your host will have told us in advance of your height, so we can assign the correct bike size.

What can I expect from this corporate session?

There will be 10 guests on track for 1 hour’s duration. You will be given a set of skills to learn by the Velodream coaching staff, who will get you riding safely on the Velodrome, and near the end of the session, there will be an individual time trial race.

On track branding

Track fence branding can be ordered, sized 9.6 metres x .6m high. Produces a lasting memory as your guests speed past the host’s branding!

Ride technology

The MyLaps transponder will count and time every lap you do. This is uploaded in real time, so you can check your progress on smart phone, i pad or laptop. For the 1 lap time trial, the big screen displays your name, and your finish time. It will also rank each riders time.


You can be photographed during the session, and for your time trial ride by Crankphoto, who will provide digital images, and at extra cost - printed and framed photo presentations. A post-race group photo, in front of the company branding will provide a lasting memory!


There is a nutrition and hydration package available, which will get you through the session, and also provide recovery products before you are taken to the Etihad Stadium for your hospitality (match side if City are at home!) Drink little and often!
