Geraint Thomas and a crowd of people in front of the velodrome

about this venue

In 2018 the velodrome was renamed the Geraint Thomas National Velodrome of Wales after Geraint became the first Welshman to win the world’s most famous cycling road race, the Tour de France. He has strong links with the Velodrome; having trained there ahead of winning gold on the track in the Men’s Team Pursuit in both the 2008 and 2012 summer Olympics.

The Velodrome is home to our 250-meter oval shaped track with 42-degree banking at either end, our Indoor Group Cycling Studio and the outdoor speedway cycling track (hosting Newport Cycle Speedway Club). The velodrome also has a fully equipped gym, group exercise studio, free weights gym, multi-purpose indoor sports arena and 3G football pitches.
