The StreetVelodrome Series, the World’s most accessible cycle sport series, has launched a campaign setting out its local and global vision.
The campaign, called ‘It’s In Our DNA’, will illustrate StreetVelodrome’s mission to become the World’s foremost gateway to accessible cycle sport.
As cyclists we all love our sport and we know that most cyclists are also passionate ambassadors for their sport too. Eager to encourage more people to get involved and engaged whether that’s participating or simply watching it on TV. It’s in our DNA.
What is StreetVelodrome DNA?
When somebody experiences competitive cycling for the first time as part of our televised StreetVelodrome Series.
When they experience cycle sport coaching for the first time.
When they engage with live cycle sport as a participant or spectator for the first time.
These experiences inspire individuals to go further in their own cycle sport journey. Wherever their personal story takes them, there will be StreetVelodrome DNA weaving through it from the start.
What is StreetVelodrome’s Role?
Created to reflect the growing appetite for the drama and excitement of cycle sport and the broad appeal of Olympic style pursuit racing. StreetVelodrome offers competent riders a thrilling, adrenaline filled riding experience and for spectators, a close racing spectacle with an exciting and accessible appeal.
But for those new to cycle sport riding the banked corners takes just minutes to learn. Within a few steps participants can be coached ready to line up for the start of, for many, their first ever cycle race.
The racing is fast, instant and infectious. It doesn’t take long before both the riders and spectators are feeling that ‘StreetVelodrome rush’.
StreetVelodrome offers riders of all abilities and experience free race entry, free bike loan and free coaching. Plus the priceless experience of going head to head in an exciting pursuit race against their opponent. In some cases those who qualify to race in our televised StreetVelodrome Series will race against Olympic and Elite level opposition.
What are StreetVelodrome’s Brand Values?
These are the three key strands of the StreetVelodrome DNA. They are our commitments to ensure we reach our ‘Bigger Picture’ goal.
