About the Velodrome

Erected by Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality and the Tel Aviv Foundation and located at the eastern part of Tel Aviv’s National Sports center, Sylvan Adams National Velodrome was built over former athletics tracks. Replacing older facilities, the new velodrome accommodates both riding and athletics training at the highest level.

The velodrome’s elliptical track was built to the Olympic standard: 250 meters long and banking around 47°. The velodrome was also approved by the Union Cyclist International, which governs sports cycling worldwide.

Special track bicycles are used to ride the velodrome, especially designed for minimal weight and maximum power. Being fixed-gear, or single-speed, the power in track bikes is transmitted directly from the pedals to the rear wheel via a chain. And, as track bicycles have no external brakes, the pedals are also used for breaking.

The velodrome is suitable for multiple race and training formats: sprint, Keirin, points, Madison and more, which can be practiced by riders of all levels. At Israel’s new and modern National Velodrome, sports professionals, enthusiasts and novices will enjoy an exhilarating, safe and satisfying sport cycling experience.

The track is open throughout the week for riders 8 years and older, regardless of skill level. Track bikes for rent are also available on site.
