I have never been there, something has always come up, but would really like to one day. Today I found this and this velodrome have to be saved. For many reasons Olympic history, for London, for cycling etc.
Please join us to help stop the destruction of the oldest cycle track in Britain – the 1948 Olympic Cycling Championships venue. The future of this important community facility is looking bleak as the site is under-funded and deteriorating. The venue provides an exceptional resource for cyclists and the local community and its loss would be tragic. We aim to find a way to secure the future of the site and make it a viable long-term facility for all including local residents and schools.
