Velodrome Visit

On Wednesday Room 2 went to the Saxton Velodrome. We took our scooters. Constable Charlotte and Constable Susan were there. Constable Charlotte checked our helmets fitted us properly. There is a two finger rule. 
We walked around the roads and looked at the signs. We had to scoot on the left. There were traffic lights, a roundabout, a give way sign, a stop sign, a no right turn sign and  a pedestrian crossing. We also scootered right around the footpath around the base of the velodrome track.
