Track Cycling in Otago

We’re lucky in Dunedin to have a world class track cycling facility in Mosgiel, at the Seddon Park Velodrome. It’s an outdoor facility with 250m of smooth, fast concrete.

Everyone is welcome to join track cycling.  New riders of all abilities and ages are always given a warm welcome If you don’t have a track bike, we can hire you one. Get in touch with our track convenor Hugh Fry (hughfry@gmail.com) to find out how you can get involved. Additionally, our Facebook group is where we post regular updates on our track programme.
