Re~Cycle is proud to be the official charity partner of the ASDA StreetVelodrome Series 2015.
StreetVelodrome is the World’s only pop-up velodrome event. Within hours, any high street or public space is turned into a track cycling arena; offering a new level of spectator involvement and creating a completely new competition for both professional and amateur riders.
“We think the work Re~Cycle is doing is invaluable. The positive impact of increased access to cycling is evident in our own communities, but this is amplified greater still in those areas of Africa where Re~Cycle is making an impact. The StreetVelodrome ‘It’s In Our DNA’ message is all about getting existing cyclists to be great ambassadors for their sport and to be part of our objective of bring cycling to more people. That’s why we jumped at the chance to work with Re~Cycle and to help facilitate the remarkable impact they are having in Africa. - Carl Thompson, StreetVelodrome Series Director.
StreetVelodrome’s ‘It’s In Our DNA’ campaign has the core value of creating greater access to cycling, a value close to the heart of Re~Cycle.
Series events are taking place across the UK from May to August and will be televised. Entry to the event for participants and spectators is completely free. Find your nearest series event here.
