Street Velodrome was first introduced to Lowestoft as part of the 2015 Lowestoft Festival. Following its success the velodrome will once again return to the town centre for the opening weekend of the festival.
Street Velodrome provides a very unique cycling experience for all ages. The track includes two curved corners to create a velodrome in the heart of Lowestoft town centre.
