I really enjoy both the velodrome, the staff, and all the friends I have made there. The popsicles on the last day of Nationals were the best, given the temperature and humidity. Nice touch!

I had never been to a velodrome, only watched bicycle racing on TV during the summer Olympics. We have this in our backyard!
In regards to the interesting activity and exposing yourself to various aspects of cycling, I'd give this a 5 star. Be careful during the heat of the day, this place can be very very warm as the stands are made of concrete with a western facing exposure in the afternoon. HOT HOT HOT
Go support the cycling community, visit the BMX trax and watch young to old race the track.

There are only about 29 velodromes in the US. This one is open to the public and is managed by the Rock Hill Parks & Rec department. It is beautiful, clean, fast, and the people there are wonderfully friendly and eager to help you get started.

Special equipment is needed, you cant just brink your bike from home and ride. But they have all that you need, will train you on how to use it and will provide lessons and mentoring to get you started. Truly a wonderful benefit of living in Rock Hill!

Even if you dont have time or equipment, it is a great place to visit just to see it in action!

This is a first-rate, world-class facility, but has unusual hours and little local community racing. Beyond the occasional National Championship this city run track has yet to capture the imagination of the local cycling community. Fingers are crossed for a brighter future.

We attended a recent Friday night of racing. Overall we were impressed with the facility. A suggestion would be to take a blanket or chair of some sort, as all seating is concrete. There were a good number of spectators, compared to the number of racers. I think the racer turn out was low that evening as the organizers seemed to be scrambling to rearrange the racing events and got started late. Nice restroom facilities and water fountain, but no concessions. An announcer commentated on the schedule and races to keep everyone informed. A nice facility for the cyclists in the area.

Was here after eating at a nearby restaurant. Was curious to see what a velodrome looked like. Would like to come back and watch some racing.

It's too cold in the northeast to ride outside, so we headed to SC. This was my first time visiting this track. Bob made us all feel welcomed and made sure we had everything we needed. The track is really nice and well maintained. Once you are done at the track a BMX course as well as a criterium course is just down the road.

We went for the races and couldn't have asked for a better night. The weather was perfect, and the air was full of excitement. The crowd wasn't huge, but those who were there were having a great time. Stone bleachers make up the seating area, so bring a pillow if that bothers you, most of the track could be seen from all seating angles. Some people had brought snacks, and the kids could scamper around, and yet be safe. Across the way was a grassy field for picnics. So interesting.
