Mountain biking was popular in Queenstown but as an after-work activity and the challenge was encouraging commuters to bike.
A vibrant, multicultural city brimming with life and diversity, there’s more to Birmingham than curry and canals we can assure you!
Queenstown Trails Trust chief executive Mandy Kennedy said the aim of the challenge was to encourage more people to get on their bikes.
"The Trust is fully behind this initiative and is calling on local employers to sign up teams to the challenge and inspire staff to take part in a daily ride during February," Kennedy said.
All you need is your own road bike and they will get you out riding on the Velodrome track in a safe and fun environment, leaving you with nothing to worry about other than turning your pedals and looking for love!
What to expect: Riders must have booked in advance and be 18 or over When you arrive you will be welcomed, checked in and given a personalised numbered name badge After a equipment check and a safety briefing by your British Cycling qualified coach you’ll be good to start riding on the velodrome. The gradient is nowhere near as steep as the slope that you’ll have seen on the track used during the Olympics. After the session ends you will be given a form to complete.
