- About Us -
The Alkek Velodrome is a 333meter, concrete track. Its banking ranges from 33 degrees in the turns to 9 degrees in the straights. It was built in 1986 and has held everything from Junior Regionals to Olympic Qualifiers.
For the past 30 years, the Alkek Velodrome has been owned and operated by the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department. In 2007 the city transfered the management and operations of the Velodrome, leasing it to The Greater Houston Cycling Foundation or GHCF.
The GHCF was created to ensure the continued operation of programs at the Alkek Velodrome, and is a non-profit 501c(3) corporation. The foundation manages the velodrome as well as oversees all programs. These programs include the Youth Cycling League, the Adult Cycling League, Friday and Saturday night racing, coaching of Junior and Senior racers and fundraising activities. In the future the GHCF will promote cycling activities throughout the Greater Houston area.
