“Cycling excitement”

Valley Preferred Cycling Center
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 July 2015

What a great experience to watch world class cyclists up close & personal. The announcer provides race and cyclist's information. Always different styles of racing (including tandem cycling races) and excitement whether you sit in the bleachers or along the track.
Website: thevelodrome.com provides information.

This velodrome hosts the world’s premiere weekly racing series each summer, as well as national championships and a variety of cycling events. Summer in Trexlertown, PA (T-Town velodrome) hosts New Zealand riders (their Winter season) as well as several other countries' world class cyclists. Definitely a fun, entertaining family night out.

Bicycle racing on the track on Friday nights in June & July. It's been a few years since my wife & I came here to watch the races. The homestraight bleacher seats are $8 each - not bad for a night out. The announcer is easily heard and he gives lots of info for those not familiar with a given race. We chose the homestraight bleachers mostly because the sun is at your back as it sets. The backstraight, although less expensive, will have the setting sun in your face. If you opt for the least expensive entry fee, you can stand by the walls on the turns - but bring your own chair/barstool.
They do have snack type foods (burgers, dogs, nachos, etc) in case you get hungry. Prices are not "over the top" as in other sports venues. We're planning to go back again later in mid-summer.

Friday night racing is lots of fun! Watching the professional racers fly around the track made me hold my breath more than once. This track attracts people from around the world! > Insiders secret: Tuesday nights are FREE! Tuesdays are when the Junior and amateur racers compete. Not as much fanfare, but still lots of fun. The food is a little pricy and is ok. We like to bring our own food. The wine and beer is a nice touch! I'm not sure if the food is open on Tuesdays. If you live in the Valley you should go at least once!

we wish we had something like this near us! The center is great for cyclists and the neighboring Rodale park is gorgeous.
