Herne Hill Velodrome - Iconic cycling track in South East London catering for riders of all ages and abilities Managed by VCL on behalf of British cycling


Track racing is the life blood of Herne Hill Velodrome and this makes it one of the most exciting venues in the country.  Under the management of VC Londres, we host more open race meetings than any other track in the country. We have excellent relationships with local cycling clubs and riders. We know what they want so our schedule is constantly evolving and expanding to reflect their needs. All our events are family friendly and almost all are free to spectate.

Our biggest race events attract top national and international riders. To name a few stars who've raced at the track in recent years: Victoria Pendleton, Chris Hoy, Alex Dowsett and, of course, Bradley Wiggins. Herne Hill attracts elite riders but also offers plenty of racing opportunities for novices, youngsters, juniors, seniors and veterans. Some of the younger racers will be stars of the future!  During the winter, Herne Hill Velodrome and the surrounding land adapts into an off-road Cyclo-X venue and is a major fixture for the London Cyclo-X League.

As well as big, national-level events, we hold a Wednesday evening Track League, sponsored by Cycling Weekly, the Open Season series and seasonal Omniums, meaning there is at least 1, and often 2 races each week during the racing season.  

Check out our race calendar for a complete list of races.

Starting Racing

Once you have progressed through the sessions, to participate in most races, including Wednesday Track League, you will need Silver/Gold membership from British Cycling, with a racing license. Racing Licenses can also be purchased for one-off use on the day of racing. 

Track League is the best place to have your first proper race due to its relatively informal and relaxed atmosphere. After this there is a range of weekend racing to try your hand at.
