The Cleveland Velodrome
The Cleveland Velodrome is a 166-meter, olympic-style banked wooden cycling track in Slavic Village. It was opened on August 30,2012 by Fast Track Cycling, a non-profit dedicated to running a velodrome in Cleveland. It is one of only 27 velodrome tracks in the U.S. This velodrome’s steep bank requires cyclists to maintain a speed of at least 30 km/h while riding through the turns. Beginners can keep a lower speed under the blue line, or “the staying line”. Programming exists for both kids and adults and includes open riding sessions, structured training sessions and races. Everyone under 18 rides for free! More information can be found online at clevelandvelodrome.org.
