Herne Hill Velodrome
Built in 1891, the track was used as an Olympic venue in 1948.

Unlike a modern Olympic velodrome (which will have an inner circumference of 250m, and banking of about 45), Herne Hill is a shallow concrete bowl measuring approximately 450m with the steepest banking 30.

Members of the Anerley Bicycle Club (founded 1881) attending a coached track session.
