Welcome to the official website of the Highland Velodrome Trust. We are local cyclists in the process of delivering the vision of a safe ‘development hub’ for cyclists of all persuasions, ages and abilities in the Highlands of Scotland.
LATEST HIVELO SURVEY
A new Business Plan is being prepared for the proposed Highland Council Regional Sports Centre. HiVelo is updating the information gathered in a survey of North riders which was carried out two years ago. The new survey will only take a few minutes to fill in and your assistance would be much appreciated in our campaign to bring safe accessible cycling facilities to the North of Scotland. Please click here documents/hivelo-questionnaire-v3.doc to download the survey.

HiVelo is pleased to announce that ex-Olympian North rider Eddie Alexander has agreed to become our first Honorary Patron.

Great for the Highlands that Inverness got its £315million City Deal. But sadly the proposed Regional Sports Centre was excluded from the final package. However £7-8million from SportScotland remains on the table and the Council is continuing with detailed design/costing work. The project enjoys strong political support and the final business case will come back for Council decision during the Autumn.
The inaugural Loop ride took place on Saturday 9 July in mixed weather conditions. This followed a 108 mile circuit of Wester Ross based on the start/finish hospitality facilities at the Garve Hotel. Over 30 cyclists successfully negotiated the course out via Gairloch and Dundonnell within the nine hour cut-off time. Rider feedback has been excellent and it hoped that the event will now become an annual fixture. The organising team would like to thank all of the volunteer helpers and en route venues which helped make the day a resounding success.
