  • Just noticed that the Lee Valley Velopark webpage now allows you buy gift vouchers for on track 'taster' sessions starting in the new year and prices for general track usage.

    Although no actual confirm dates to when the doors will be open to my Fuji
    As christmas presents go tho.. its better than socks.

  • Interesting details of accreditation requirements:

    *"Currently if you are accredited at Manchester, Glasgow, Newport or Calshot (indoor tracks) you will still have to pass our own accreditation process"...*but

    "If you are an accredited rider for an outdoor hard track (e.g. Herne Hill, Welwyn, Palmer Park) you will only need to complete level 3 and 4 of the accreditation process"

    doesn't make too much sense to me.

  • trying to appease the home crowd?

  • How can you prove that you an accredited rider at HH, I wonder?

    pass the accreditation system that's being introduced next year and present your card.

  • I will point them towards the most photographed LFGSS event ever as my evidence

    unbelievable.......

  • How can we book? I can only see taster session gift vouchers which I presume require booking at some point.

  • You can't and never will be able to book. The velodrome is just an illusion left over from the Olympics. :)

  • I thought it was a marketing tool for a well known crisp maker.

  • I'd love to go to a Pringles tasting session.

  • Only if there was enough cider or beer though, right?

    hillbilly doesn't make that distinction. When he says 'beer', he means cider, too.

  • it's all just crisp lube to Jim

  • does seem that velodromes are solidly still held in their own unique worlds.
    wierd that riders regularly travel across the country to ride and race them really....

  • top insight there.

  • Accreditation update on website:
    Currently if you are accredited at Manchester, Glasgow, Newport or Calshot (indoor tracks) you will still have to pass our own accreditation process. We anticipate this changing in due course as we are currently working on a national plan for all five major indoor velodromes to share a unified system of accreditation and will state here if our process changes in the future.

  • did that ^^^ come from the deathstar aka M.cr?

  • Believe it was headed up by Lee Valley Velopark, but makes a lot of sense. They've also been working hard to establish links with all the outdoor velodromes in the surrounding area.

    It probably won't help anyone who already has accreditations at Manchester/Newport/Glasgow though, as I imagine they will only accept accreditations done after the process was standardised.

  • My girlfriend's mum bought me one of these for Christmas (completely unprompted, amazing!) - any ideas when it opens for booking?

  • twitter.com/leevalleyvp

    Booking will be available in a few weeks.

    No time soon then!!

  • Should be opening late march / april. Certainly, the road circuit will be open by may as we have booked it for our TT series through the summer.

    Sounds interesting, any details on this?

  • Apparently a group of us from work may be invited to go to a session at the Velopark as 'guinea pigs'. Hoping it's the velodrome and not the BMX track.
