Racing returns to Palmer Park velodrome in Reading

Outdoor track at Palmer Park in Reading is deemed fit again for competitive cycling following repairs to perimeter fence

Competitive racing will return to the Palmer Park velodrome in Reading next week after repairs were carried out to improve the safety of the 459m outdoor track.

The track was deemed unsafe for racing by British Cycling in mid March following an independent survey, however action from Reading Borough Council and staff at the sports facility to repair the track fencing and remove an outer fence made of concrete posts and steel railings means the local track league can start for the season this Monday, April 27.
