To Our Cycling Community
It is with regret that Cycling Whanganui is suspending all activity on the Velodrome under its control until further notice. This is due to the on-going health and safety concerns with the track. This is in conjunction with a recommendation to the Council that the venue is closed to allow for further maintenance and repairs to take place.
This includes training, club nights and the 72nd running of the River City Wheelrace. We know this will be disappointing news, especially for our junior riders who have been training hard for upcoming events.
We do not anticipate the venue reopening before the end of the 20/21 track season in a few weeks.
We are continuing to work closely with the Council to find a way to resolve these matters for the longer term. We will continue to keep members informed of developments as they occur.
