Last night I attended a training session at the Hull Cycle Speedway club. I joined the youth session at 18.30 and decided to watch the adult one at 19.30 given the fact the littlies whipped me. It was my first experience of riding a specialised speedway bicycle and racing on a shale surface. I found it exciting and interestingly strategic. Andy and Derek, key contacts of the club, were very welcoming and encouraging.
