This isn't one of our projects. It's been driven entirely by the cyclists, who wanted a high-performance centre similar to the one Rowing NZ has had for several years at Lake Karapiro nearby. However, a lot of the plants that feature in the video came from us.
The Avantidrome is open to the public and for a modest charge ($25 an hour as at March 2018) you can hire a bike and ride the track. The out-door mountain bike graded facilities are available free. Many Cambridge people were opposed to the velodrome, thinking it would be a rough-and-ready thing and a drain on the ratepayers, but it is successful and self-supporting. The number of cyclists to be seen on Cambridge streets has noticeably increased.
