Velodrome



The National Cycling Centre was Britain's first indoor Olympic standard cycling track, and since it opened in 1994, is one of the World's finest and fastest indoor tracks. One lap is 250 metres, and the bankings are 42 ½ degrees.

We are the busiest Velodrome in the World, and the track is in constant use, fourteen hours a day, seven days a week and, thanks to the comprehensive programme of activities for all levels of ability, from elite athletes to novices, the track offers sessions to anyone seeking to experience this exciting sport.

Regular users of the track include members of the very successful GB track cycling teams and Paralympic team, such as Jason Kenny CBE, Laura Kenny (née Trott) CBE and Jody Cundy OBE, as well as local schoolchildren and track enthusiasts.

If you're new to track cycling, you need to be able to ride a two-wheeled bike unaided, with sufficient fitness to ride for an hour. All riders must be at least 12 years of age (9 for Junior or Family Tasters, Disability sessions or specific Community/Youth sessions). For more details, click here.

We offer guided tours, with some tours coinciding with the training of Olympic and World Champions!
