The Cisco Milton Pan Am / Parapan Am Velodrome will have a 250-metre timber track, with two 42-degree banks, designed to meet the most stringent requirements set by the International Cycling Union (UCI). The oval-shaped, three-storey, fully accessible velodrome is the sole facility of its kind in Canada and only the second that meets top international standards in the USA and Canada. Designed to operate year-round, the facility will provide an important new Olympic- and Paralympic-calibre training facility for high-performance Canadian cyclists who, for the last two decades, have been forced to train outside the country for months at a time. In addition, the Velodrome is built as a legacy community recreational centre. For example: when cyclists are training on the track, the three multi-use courts located on the infield or bowl can be used for basketball and volleyball games, while joggers can use the walking track located on the spectator level — all at the same time.
