  • Our local "pride": "het Kuipke" in Ghent (Belgium). This is where I learned track-cycling (only 166 m long, steep as hell)

    And this is where we have been banned to (also in Ghent):

  • Ha "Het Kuipkje" looks WELL steep. Not for the faint hearted.

  • northeastern us - mid atlantic/new england have only kissena in nyc

    and trexlertown in pennsylvania.

    both pretty far for me, but i plan on riding kissena in the spring. mens track clinic, etc. i guess there was a poor excuse of a velo in vermont. stopped hosting races.

    i haven't read any updates about the new indoor velodrome being constructed in pittsburgh, pa

    i want a high banked 250 or smaller wooden indoor deal like forest city in canada, calshot, or the old boulder velodrome. small budget. doesn't have to be a multi sports plex center or have insane ceiling.

    plenty of odd, unused, and abandoned warehouses within all states in the region. guh. bridgeport or new haven, connecticut would be good locations.

  • Took some photos of the Velódromo del Estadio Nacional, Chile. Pretty battered and currently they working on repairing the cracks etc. Would hope for it to be ready by next year -

  • Lovely work, BigH.

    FCV was my intro to indoor velodromes about seven years ago! baptism of fire...

  • I'm heading to Athens and I'd like to ride the track, but apparently you have to be in a club or part of the national team. Seems a bit harsh, anybody managed to get on it?

  • Future dreams for Kiev

  • This is Alkek Velodrome in Houston, a bumpy 333m concrete track, but is also a hotbed for producing super junior talent.

  • Jacque Anquetil Velodrome

    there was a list with national and world records, i've tried to explain that they need to update the list with WHR by Bradley Wiggins, but failed..

  • ^ Looks like fun.

  • Needs finishing with some lines

  • Anybody know if there's a velodrome in Bratislava now? I'm failing with my Slovakian googling, all I find is links to the outdoor one being destroyed.

  • I heard they were doing some painting at Meadowbank. Thought they were getting rid of the graffiti.

  • Somewhere in Argentina:

  • Here is my new local velodrome in Hong Kong, I swapped the old Herne Hill for a brand new UCI legal indoor one.

    £100m cost with a huge very fancy park around it. And how many time this is being used per week? Only one time for a 2hrs session!!!

    And only 3 regular expat and 1 or 2 locals from time to time. Cost of the session....be careful lee valley user, stop reading now....£9

    Cost of renting the entire velodrome for 2 hours £42!!!!

    Even the pro train in the mainland china rather than in Hong Kong so rarely use the facilities.
