Facilities

The first major discussion around the development of the National Cycling Centre was to attach it to a major facility. From day one, the Dieppe Vélodrome has been the training pride of the Centre. 

In the summer of 2007, local riders were be able to test there abilities on the latest construction... the Subway BMX Track!

Respecting the Centre’s mandate to develop future Olympians, these facilities, along with our mountain bike trails and nice road, are built accordingly to respect the needs of the Centre riders and participants.





The Dieppe Vélodrome

The Dieppe velodrome, the construction was completed in July 2001, is an important, and logical component of the Centre and since became the only one east of Bromont, QC. Over a distance of 250m (12% in the straits and 38.9% in the turns), it serves as a work tool and training facility for not only top level athletes, but is also opened for everyone eager to challenge himself to a test of high speed cycling as well as to participate in our cycling schools (development program).

To this velodrome are added an important track bike fleet.

More on the Dieppe Velodrome. 

Like many did in the first years of the Dieppe Velodrome, the athlete in you is looking for new challenges. In a few hours, you want to challenge gravity and climb the walls of a track you've only ever witness on television during Olympic Games. Even if you are a high level cyclist or you simply want to satisfy the athlete within you, our qualified staff will be happy to serve you. The track initiation courses (Track 101) are offered on demand at regular track hours as well as at specific hours for group reservation.Please,   contact our office for more information on the next Track 101 course.

The Subway BMX Track

The newest addition to our facilities is the Subway BMX track. With BMX becoming an Olympic discipline in 2008, our mandate is clear at the Centre; we had to be part of the BMX adventure. This new 350 m track was completed in the summer of 2007 and is now welcoming the cyclists from everywhere.

 

For the summer of 2012, the membership card, available for 50$, will again offer you access to the track along with coaching session (Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8 starting in June). Extra open time might be available according to number of volunteers available.

The general public will also have access to the track on Sunday evenings, beetween 6 and 8 pm. Cyclists of all ages are welcome to try, free of charge, this new sport. We also rent bikes and full face helmets. Clothing requirements are as simple as wearing a full pair of pants, long sleeve shirt, and gloves.

2012 will have its share of competition to be published at a later date.
