Lee Valley VeloPark

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

Lee Valley VeloPark is open. Opening hours may vary, please visit the venue's website for more details. Sessions will need to be pre-booked.


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 venue 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.

Try out an introduction to track cycling with a one hour taster session, or if you're already familiar with the velodrome track, why not go through the four-stage accreditation course to unlock more advanced coaching sessions? 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 across terrain of varying difficulty levels.

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 6 Day London and the UCI Track Cycling World Championships – so you’re in good company!


  • Lee Valley VeloPark has the capacity to host a full range of cycling events and regularly hosts national and international events including 6 Day London and the World Cycling Championships. Keep your eyes peeled for the latest events and get your tickets on our current events page!

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