2012 London Olympics: The VeloPark

Manchester has got one and very soon London will have one too. No its not an unintelligible gum-chewing Scotsman as a football manager, but our very own state of the art VeloPark!

Ready for the 2012 Olympics, Londoners will soon be the proud owners a spanking new 6,000 seater cycling venue that will truley put us on the cycling map and create a world-class cycling legacy for London and the UK.

2012 London Olympics: The VeloPark

The VeloPark, designed by Hopkins Architects, will be based in the north of the Olympic Park, and will not only include a 6,000 seat Velodrome to host the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic indoor track cycling events but also a BMX circuit for Olympic events and a cafe!. After the Games, a road cycle circuit and mountain bike course will also be added. The VeloPark will also be linked into cycle routes across London, connecting the whole of our great capital with its new world-class cycling facilities. 

Our own cycling Mayor Boris Johnson said:

"The VeloPark is going to be an outstanding iconic landmark that will be admired around the world and I can't wait to see the finished structure packed to the rafters cheering on Team GB cyclists as once again they go for gold in 2012. It will also provide an excellent legacy of facilities for every type of cyclist from across the south of England and be able to compete to stage major cycling competitions and events in the years to come."

See you on the track Boris, losers gets the teas in…
