Train at the Bromont Velodrome this winter

Opening in summer 2022 in a modern setting dedicated to the passion of cycling, the Vélodrome de Bromont attracts more and more enthusiasts each year looking for an interesting and original alternative for winter training in Quebec. Find out today about the history of this new iconic venue, and why it's a great option for training before the warm weather sets in!

The grand return of a covered velodrome in Quebec

Since the destruction of the Vélodrome Olympique de Montréal in 1989 (long the world's largest velodrome), Quebec has had no indoor cycling track. But that's changed: inaugurated in the summer of 2022 as part of the prestigious Centre National du Cyclisme, the Bromont velodrome has quickly established itself as a jewel in the crown of cycling in our fair province.

Nestled in the heart of a region already renowned for its commitment to the sport, its modern architecture makes it an iconic venue for cycling enthusiasts. The velodrome takes its name from the famous track used at the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996, which was reclaimed by the town of Bromont in 2001 for use as a seasonal velodrome each summer. At the end of the 2010s, the decision was made to roof the track for all-season use and to revive the track tradition in Quebec. Today, we are once again lucky enough to be able to ride on a covered track in our region, to the delight of the entire local cycling community!

An ideal winter alternative for training

While winter often poses challenges for cyclists to keep up their training, the Bromont velodrome offers an excellent alternative to fatbike or base bike training. It's even an ideal choice when the weather doesn't permit fatbike adventures, and you're tired of training at home on your base. The major advantage of the velodrome is, of course, its roof, which creates a controlled atmosphere, allowing cyclists to pedal comfortably in all seasons, like a true cycling refuge from the vagaries of the weather. Riding on the track, you can practice intervals as well as work on your fundamentals, all the while enjoying a truly pleasant sensation of speed. All in all, an ideal choice for staying in shape and preparing for the season in the best possible way!

A pleasant experience and a top-notch service

The Bromont velodrome stands out as an excellent winter option for several reasons. Firstly, free training sessions, available for just $25 + tax, offer much-appreciated flexibility. In addition, the possibility of renting a locker to store your bike is a practical advantage, with rates of $400 + tax for 6 months and $500 + tax for 1 year. These facilities not only facilitate organization, they also make the Bromont velodrome an ideal venue for regular training. And with not only a pumptrack track, but also a track and field track, and a delicious café on site, everything is in place for a quality sporting experience!

What you need to know before you go

Before setting off for a training session at the Bromont velodrome, there are a few important points to consider. Make sure you have the right equipment, including a bike in good condition and appropriate track clothing (jersey, shorts, helmet). The specific safety and driving rules of the velodrome must also be respected. It's also advisable to check training times and reserve your slot in advance to guarantee your place on the track, as certain periods are reserved for teams and families with children.
