Meadowbank Velodrome is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting cycling tracks in Britain. Its relatively short length (250 m) and steep banking (45 degrees) make riding and racing thrilling for riders and spectators alike. However, the unique characteristics of our track also require that riders use it with considerably more awareness and respect than is needed at larger flat tracks.
When using the facility safety and common sense must always prevail. We all want to make the most of this facility, and it is up to each individual to conduct them self in a thoughtful, responsible manner.
During 2010 an accreditation process was introduced to ensure that riders who are using the velodrome in unsupervised “Open training” sessions have had the opportunity to receive instruction and supervised practice on the track and are safe to use the facility. Open training is no longer permitted and all users must make a booking as a recognised group. During 2012 there will be further sessions to allow riders to become accredited, dates will be posted here when they have been fixed.
