This morning in Brighton over 200 cyclists of all ages came out in force for the
Save Preston Park Cycle Track ride. As someone in love with cycling who lives just minutes away from the track, this is a campaign very close to my heart and we must do all that we can to save the track.
Preston Park velodrome is the oldest in the country and second oldest in the world – constructed in 1877. One of only nine outdoor tracks in the UK remaining, it has hosted competitive cycling events every year since – apart from this year when British Cycling deemed the track unsafe for racing.
