Cycle Track

Get out on your bike safely in any weather conditions at Colchester Sports Park’s largest Cycle Track in Essex and East of England.

Our unique 1-mile floodlit closed road cycle circuit, one of the longest cycle tracks in the UK, is perfect for road cycling for people of any ability, with multiple individual circuits available meaning the track can be ridden by novices and cycling enthusiasts alike. 

Professional and amateur cycling clubs can hire out our Cycle Track for training and competitions as well as making use of the MyLaps timing system, and timing hut.

All cyclists are free to bring along their own bike and equipment or you can hire our state-of-the-art bicycles on your visit. Please note that our session prices below do not include bike or helmet hire; you can find hire prices here.

Use your Leisure Card to book your session – or if you do not have a Leisure Card, register online now.

Juniors = 5 years+ (need to be a competent rider). Stabilisers, balance bikes and scooters are not permitted on the track. No one is allowed to walk on the track, every person must be on a bike when on the cycle track (only carers may walk alongside their client on the grass area, but our team must be informed). Helmets must always be worn.
