Lee Valley VeloPark

Track cycling, road racing, BMX or mountain biking: get your two-wheeled thrills at the unrivalled Lee Valley VeloPark

Centred on the iconic, award-winning, 6,000-seat velodrome where Sir Chris Hoy and Dame Sarah Storey, along with their Team GB and Paralympics GB compatriots set the London 2012 Games alight, Lee Valley VeloPark is the first place in the world where you can take part in four types of cycling in one place: Track cycling, road racing, BMX or mountain biking.

The VeloPark caters for all abilities, from beginners to elite: anyone can cycle here! You don't even need a bike - you can hire everything you need - so there's nothing stopping you from experiencing the fun of two wheels.

The indoor velodrome is the fastest track in the world. Try out an introduction to track cycling with a one hour session, or if you're already familiar with the velodrome track, why not go through the four-stage accreditation course? Alternatively, experience an adrenaline rush on the remodelled Olympic BMX track, with over 30 bumps, jumps and berms.

The floodlit one-mile road circuit is perfect for getting back on your bike if it's been a while. Or if you prefer to go off-road, there are 8km of traffic-free mountain bike trails on offer.

This really is a venue for everyone- amateurs and world champions. There are programmes for people new to cycling, schools, clubs and community groups. Some sessions will need to be booked but you can ‘pay and ride’ at many others.

The world’s top cyclists regularly compete at Lee Valley VeloPark in high profile events such as the Revolution Series and the UCI Track Cycling World Championships- so you’re in good company!

  • Lee Valley VeloPark has the capacity to host the full range of cycling events, including World Championships. It opened with the finale of the Revolution Series – Britain’s top track cycling competition – in March and will host the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in 2016, the most important track cycling event ahead of the Rio Games.

    The venue will be available for hire by schools, clubs, and community groups in addition to more casual ‘pay and play’ users.

    We are working with our partners to ensure the Park is linked with existing cycle routes across London.
