Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome

A cycling venue at Dalmarnock in E Glasgow, the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome lies on the opposite side of London Road from Celtic Park. It takes its name from Scotland's multi-medal winning cycling Olympian and Commonwealth Games champion, and celebrates Scotland's successes in cycling over the preceding decade. Opened in 2012, it comprises a 2000-seat velodrome, intimately connected to the adjacent Commonwealth Arena, with a 250-m / 820-foot track designed by German architect Ralph Schürmann, one of the world's foremost track designers.

The velodrome played host to the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Track Cycling World Cup (2012), the Scottish National Track Championships (2013) and cycling events associated with the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow of 2014 and the European Championships of 2018.
