The Geraint Thomas National Velodrome of Wales in Newport is one of 5 indoor velodromes in the UK and the only indoor velodrome in Wales. We host National and International competitions with talented young riders and adults alike striving to be the best that they can be.

The velodrome played host to Team GB and Paralympic GB as they prepared for Olympic and Paralympic games. We have helped them in their success in 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. Prior to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we also hosted Australian and USA squads. Welsh Cycling is based at Wales National Velodrome and has daily training sessions developing new talent and preparing for competitions.
