How do I get my kid(s) involved?

Plan your visit to the Lexus Velodrome! We are open 10-9 Monday-Thursday, 10-7 Friday, and 12-6 Sunday for tours. No need to call ahead. Our staff can advise on first steps for your child. We have learn-to-ride assistance, Track Cycling and Inline Skating 7 days per week. 

I heard you have Summer Camps. What’s up with that?

We offer a FREE week-long camp for kids of all ages and abilities. 6 one-week sessions are available every Summer. Below, you will find our informational poster. We will be taking 2022 registration online HERE.

Can kids get on the Velodrome?

YES! Kids 17yrs. and younger are always free. Sign them up for a Track 101 class, a 1 hour introductory session with a cycling coach HERE. We will get them familiar with the Track bikes, the track itself, and onto the banking.

Is Track 101 all ages?

Well, mostly. We have riders aged 5-86 years old on the banking of the Velodrome. If your child can’t ride a bike quite yet, we can help teach your kids to ride on our outer flat track. 12″ wheel Balance Bikes are available for those young enough to walk, plus 14″/16″/20″/24″/26″-wheel bikes to learn on. No training wheels required! Trust the process. Please call us at 313-265-6725 to arrange.
