No theorems were solved at the Centre of Mathematical Sciences, home of *Plus* yesterday… Instead everyone was enjoying the Tour de France zooming through Cambridge! Whether it's finding the right gear, attacking the turns or building the perfect track, maths and cycling go together like lycra and shorts!

Leaning into 2012 – why leaning into turns lets you go faster.

How the velodrome found its form – how maths helped create the iconic curves around this ribbon of track.
