Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, Councillor Ken Dixon, said; “The StreetVelodrome is the latest exciting addition to Stockton Cycling Festival.
“The StreetVelodrome will further add to the exhilarating atmosphere in Stockton Town Centre throughout the weekend and complement a range of unique activities and attractions which will give everyone from elite cyclists to families with young children opportunities to compete, spectate, have fun and reap the health benefits that cycling brings.
“Cycling is going to have a higher profile than ever this year as the Tour de France comes to Yorkshire and participation in the sport has never been more accessible in Stockton with the Cycling Festival giving people an opportunity to enjoy bike-related fun, whatever their ability.”
“Having a three year partnership allows us to work with Stockton Council more effectively and to deliver a fantastic addition to their already impressive events calendar” added Carl Thompson StreetVelodrome Series Director.
