NATIONAL CYCLING CENTRE REFURBISHMENT PROJECT
CONFIRMED CLOSURE INFORMATION
As you’ll be aware, Manchester City Council is undertaking a programme of refurbishment
of the Velodrome arena and concourse in order to modernise the facility and to enable it to
continue to meet the needs of the community and elite track cycling programmes for the next
Due to the comprehensive extent of the planned works, it will be necessary to close the
Velodrome arena from end of day Sunday 23rd January 2022 until late August 2022.
The track and track centre will be affected by this closure, as will the meeting rooms on the
velodrome side of the building. The Velopark Cafe will remain closed as options for a new
location are finalised. There will be a selection of food and drink served from reception, with
seating available in the foyer.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
Activities on the Velodrome track will continue as normal until the end of day Sunday 23rd
January 2022. Temporary spectator seating is available on the sports court.
BMX activity will continue to be available as normal throughout the duration of the
refurbishment project. Sessions can be booked as normal through the Better UK app or online.
During the closure period we’ll be running Zwift sessions online and also in centre using our
Watt Bikes. Information about theses sessions and how to book them will be posted onto the
nationalcyclingcentre.com website and our social media accounts, so like us on Facebook and
follow us on Twitter to stay up to date.
If you rent a bike storage hook at the centre, please can you make arrangements to take
your bike away with you on or before Sunday 23rd January 2022 as we’re unable to store
bikes during the refurbishment period. We’ll automatically extend your 12 month rental
agreement by the length of the closure period.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and support during the
closure period. We’re confident that any short term inconvenience will be offset by the
investment which will not only vastly upgrade the Velodrome building and concourse, but
introduce a range of new sustainable technologies designed to reduce carbon emissions and
provide a more modern and efficient building in the long term.
