Torbay Velopark

Torbay Velopark

TDA, in conjunction with Torbay Council, developed a successful business case to secure British Cycling match funding for this brand new £800k facility. The project was also managed by our Property Services department.

Thousands of people are now enjoying recreational and competitive riding at the purpose-built Torbay VeloPark which is part of a national network of cycling facilities across the UK. It is the only park of its type from Bath through to Cornwall, making Torbay a centre of excellence for cycling sports in the South West.

The project was a mutual aspiration of British Cycling and Torbay Council and involves the formation of a new 1.5km closed road cycling circuit, situated predominantly along the boundaries of the lower Clennon Valley playing fields, adjacent to Dartmouth Road.

The building of this closed road circuit offers a much wider range of activities other than cycling and greatly enhances the Council’s ability to deliver the health and wellbeing programs.

The circuit allows for safe training and confidence building for novice cyclists, and provides a facility for a wide range of sports while ensuring that they can be undertaken in a safe controlled environment.
