Manchester Velodrome (HSBC UK National Cycling Centre)
When the Manchester Velodrome opened its doors in 1994 it was Britain’s first indoor Olympic-standard cycling track. Since then it has famously become home to the successful GB Cycling Team with household names like Victoria Pendleton, Jason Kenny and Laura Trott all using the facility to train for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
It’s not just the elite athletes who use the National Cycling Centre though – the velodrome is constantly used seven days a week with everyone from school children to track cycling enthusiasts using the track, making it one of the busiest velodromes in the world.
In 2011 the National Cycling centre was significantly expanded with the launch of the world’s first purpose built indoor BMX track and training centre, which provides further cycling opportunities for Manchester residents as well as an international competition venue and first class training facility. The development further cemented Manchester’s status as the home of cycling in Britain.
The venue is situated in the Sport City complex adjacent to the junction of A6010 Alan Turing Way and A662 Ashton New Road. Please note that ALL road direction signs are for the National Cycling Centre.
