The Herne Hill Velodrome is one of the best places to come and watch the sport of track cycling in action. Even with its 100+ year history
it is still one of the UK’s best cycling venues and we host more open events
than any other velodrome in the country. Spectators are always welcome and almost all of our races and events are free to watch. This gives everyone the opportunity to watch top athletes competing against each other.
Many of the events have excellent facilities for spectators too: food, drink and merchandise stalls, commentary and crowd-pleasing racing! While all of the races at the velodrome can be good to watch, the following events are organised with spectators in mind and feature riders from all over the UK and abroad (these are highlighted in bold on our race calendar
