Built in 1983 in preparation for the 1984 Olympic Games, the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center Velodrome is the official training venue for U.S. Olympic and Paralympic track cycling and USA Roller Sports. The Velodrome features a 333.3-meter banked cement cycling track, which wraps around a 200-meter track for roller sports. The 1,000-seat facility is open to the public for community racing, and hosts local, national and international events.
If you would like to try your hand at riding in any of the community racing events, you must first learn the safety and etiquette of riding on a track. The U.S. Olympic Committee and U.S.A. Cycling sponsor a class entitled “Adult Learn the Velo“. Click the link for more information on dates, times and cost.
