The Velodrome is a brilliant public facility, set in Slades Farm Open Space in Ensbury Park, Bournemouth, which was opened in 2011 and has provided excellent cycling experiences for thousands of people. The facility, which is available to all, is managed by Active Dorset in partnership with Bournemouth Borough Council, British Cycling and the local cycling clubs.

We would be delighted to welcome you to use this facility, whatever standard of rider you are. We can provide high quality sessions for all users from novices through to experienced track riders.

We have a thriving cycling club scene in the area, who provide a welcoming and professional introduction to the fun and excitement of learning to track cycle at the velodrome, with a skilled workforce that can help riders of all ages and abilities to enjoy this great activity. You can view the local clubs here.

The velodrome is part of the wider activity at Slades Farm, which is a public green space with pitches, skate park and dog agility.

The velodrome has two main aims:

  • To provide an accessible, safe, traffic free environment to introduce people to cycling. Everyone can enjoy and learn how to handle their bike so they can confidently use it. There is also a tarmacked cycle track around the wider park at Slades Farm which can be utilised.
  • To allow those who wish to become track cyclists the benefits of a superb facility that enables participation from beginners right through to the competitive level. There are some excellent local cycling clubs who play the central role in encouraging this development.
