What is Worthing StreetVelodrome?
StreetVelodrome’s ambition is to ‘deliver change through accessible cycle sport’.
With both professional and amateur riders participating side by side, the StreetVelodrome provides three days of outstanding public engagement.
StreetVelodrome is one of the world’s most accessible cycle sport events. Using the concept of a pop-up track to bring the excitement of Olympic style track pursuit racing into town centres. With free events and equipment to use while open to the public, StreetVelodrome turns cycling into an open and fun sport, accessible to everyone.
WHO WILL BE SEEN ON THE TRACK?
Olympic & Elite Pro Riders, the StreetVelodrome Kids Series involving ages 5 through to 15 and Amateur Riders. There is also the opportunity for member of the public to take to the track.
The series sees local qualifying amateur cyclists competing alongside Olympic and elite level cyclists, as well as a number of other inclusive events, such as the StreetVelodrome Kids Series, free pro rider coaching sessions and more.
StreetVelodrome is a fantastic way to engage with the public and has a large audience. Including a live expo, opportunities for the public to have a go on track and participate in races, free coaching sessions, cycle hire and goody-bags.
Series Director Carl Thompson commented “We really do love to be by the sea side! The StreetVelodrome TV Series annual trip to Worthing beach is one of the highlights of the tour. Since 2015 our host partners Worthing Council have done an excellent job in creating a fantastic community event celebrating being active through cycling. The event has its own legacy story as well now with the rise and rise of home rider Rowena Price now an established pro rider in our tour. We can’t wait to see what the 2017 event will bring.”
