National Cycling Centre (The Velodrome)
The National Cycling Centre was Britain's first indoor Olympic cycling track, and since it opened in 1994, has become one of the World's finest and fastest board tracks. The track is in constant use seven days a week and, thanks to the comprehensive programme of activities for all levels of ability, it is one of the busiest in the world. 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 team, such as Sir Chris Hoy and Vicky Pendleton MBE, as well as local schoolchildren and track enthusiasts.
This year the National Cycling Centre has been significantly expanded with the launch of the new £19M indoor BMX track. Together with new, purpose built offices for British Cycling, the governing body for cycling in Britain, this development will further consolidate Manchester’s status as the centre of cycling in the country.
