A Minnesota velodrome for all

Our Mission

MN Cycling Center Mission

The Minnesota Cycling Center seeks to build and operate a velodrome that serves to engage, inspire and challenge current and future cyclists.

Our Vision

Leverage the Minnesota community’s experience and enthusiasm for cycling to build interest in and deliver excellent velodrome racing and training.  Utilize the physics of cycling to engage and educate youth with real world science programming.

Bikes teach

They teach independence. They teach activity. They teach valuable skills.

The MN Cycling Center brings cycling within reach of kids and adults from all walks of life.  With this simple machine, both kids and adults can explore their world and embrace a healthy lifestyle.  While the bicycle is our vehicle for reaching people, our educational programming will make the real impact.  Kids will take the knowledge they gain in the classroom into our athletic facilities where they’ll put it to the test.

S.T.E.A.M. Academic Curriculum

We are working closely with local curriculum experts to deliver a unique science-based suite of educational programs for kids centered around the science of sports. We’re currently delivering our program after-school in the Minneapolis Public Schools for 4th & 5th graders.

In our Cycling Center classroom, our programs will expand exponentially.  Kids will learn important concepts in biology and human performance, math, physics and engineering.  Then, we’ll turn them loose in our athletic facilities for practical experiments that will drive the classroom learning home.
