Otherwise known as T-Town, we’re the cycling capital of the United States with a world famous velodrome hosting the world’s premiere weekly racing series each summer, as well as national championships, in addition to large group rides, charity rides, cyclo-cross events, and much more.
For each of the past 42 summers, the Lehigh Valley has been home to the greatest local and international cyclists in the world. In past years, as many as 19 different nations have been represented and multiple Olympians have taken part in the World Series of Bicycling. No other venue in the region offers such high caliber action at such an affordable price in a family-friendly atmosphere.
T-Town is known around the world for its high-caliber bike racing, but its roots is its’ youth development. The Valley Preferred Cycling Center offers programs for riders as young as five years old in an effort to grow the sport. With many of its programs free to the community, the Valley Preferred Cycling Center provides equipment and Olympic-caliber coaching in an effort to show students what track cycling is all about or even foster the next Olympian.
“With its amazing youth and community programs, which feed riders into the track, T-Town is able to generate more Olympic and world-class athletes than any other velodrome I know in the country.”
“I personally would encourage any track cyclist wishing to chase their dreams and further develop their ability and potential to base themselves in the Lehigh Valley, where they will be exposed to the best international racing that time and time again has produced so many World and Olympic medalists.“
"My introduction to track cycling was at the TTown velodrome. It's where my love of the track began. Its the first track I ever rode, and I raced there every chance I got throughout my career. TTown is a very special place in American cycling, and I'm so grateful for the opportunities it gave me."
