Velo City: Pop-up Velodrome comes to Broadgate

StreetVelodrome at Broadgate-2

If you want a lunchtime speed fix, don’t go changing out of your Lycra because Broadgate is hosting the world’s only pop-up StreetVelodrome.

On Thursday August 7, the Velodrome is coming to the area as part of the London Summer of Sport season, which has seen the return of the big screen to Exchange Square so people can watch the summer’s sporting events for free. Cycling fans can have a go on the track from 11am to 5pm and see if they are speedy enough for the televised final by completing a two-lap time trial.

All equipment will be provided and spectators are welcome to watch the action trackside all day.

End the day by watching the very best amateurs from the regional heats, plus two Broadgate wildcards compete to win the series by joining up with pro-riders in the televised SportPursuit StreetVelodrome Series Super Final starting at 5.45pm. Jude Brosnan
