Release date: 

7 March 2024

During the ten year anniversary of the opening of Lee Valley VeloPark, new investment in the venue has been announced

Lee Valley VeloPark the hugely successful legacy venue from the London 2012 Games, is delighted to announce a new state of the art health and fitness suite, thanks to a significant investment of more than £500,000 from Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.

Set to launch in May 2024, the new facilities at Lee Valley VeloPark will be managed by GLL, a charitable social enterprise and worker-owned cooperative, operating under the community-brand, Better.

Shaun Dawson, Chief Executive of Lee Valley Regional Park Authority said, “We are delighted to be carrying out this investment project during Lee Valley VeloPark’s tenth anniversary year. Over the past decade more than 8.4 million people have visited this stunning venue, hugely broadening participation in cycling. Thousands more have watched the world’s best compete at 18 major international events, introducing wider audiences to the thrills of live cycling events and inspiring future generations.

“This latest investment to create a top class fitness suite, which is available to everyone, is part of our ongoing programme of improvement at the venue, ensuring its long term sustainability.”

Lee Valley VeloPark has a rich history as a world class venue that hosted the track cycling and BMX events during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It's the only venue in the world to have hosted Olympics, Paralympics, World Championships and Commonwealth Games in the same sport. The venue also offers an extensive programme of club, elite, community and school activity.

The brand new and accessible gym facility is designed to cater to a diverse range of fitness and will feature a comprehensive set of equipment and amenities. The gym will have the latest TechnoGym cardiovascular machines, state of the art Pure Strength resistance kit, dedicated functional training areas and a free weight area.

One of the standout features of the new gym is the inclusion of an outdoor workout space equipped with self powered kit. This innovative outdoor area will offer fitness enthusiasts a unique experience with Skiergs, a ski machine that offers a full body workout, rowing machines, and functional equipment such as barbells, kettle bells and much more, allowing them to enjoy an invigorating workout amidst the outdoor surroundings and view of the road circuit.

Gym goers will also be able to use the 1 mile road circuit for both cycling and running during programmed sessions.

Keith Griffiths, General Manager at Lee Valley VeloPark, expressed his enthusiasm about the upcoming project, by saying: "We’re thrilled to introduce these exciting additions to our iconic venue. Lee Valley VeloPark is not just a venue for cycling; it's a hub for fitness.

“Whether you’re a cyclist, someone taking their first steps in the gym or a fitness enthusiast, the new facilities at Lee Valley VeloPark will provide an exciting new space for you to make the most of.”
