London2012 Legacy: Velo Park also open to the public

And the legacy continues. After last week’s opening of the stunning Swimming Complex with the added bonus of bumping into the Olympic Medalist Tom Daley, this week we have been told  the public will be  given access to the Olympic Velodrome and BMX. That includes track, road, mountain bike and BMX. Personally I cannot hold my excitement. Not only does it bring back a wonderful flow of thrilling memories of London2012 but fills me with hope that the less privileged people in Rio will benefit from the extraordinary venues being built there for the 2016 Games.

And the programme is truly directed to a wide range audience. An article on the Evening Standard explains. ” It also plans to host an average of 75 sessions for schools and 135 for clubs per month at special prices with targeted schemes for women, over-50s and toddlers as well as talent spotting initiatives and cycling proficiency programme Bikeability.” 

From 31st March . £4 to get in!

E o legado continua. Após a abertura na semana passada do impressionante complexo de piscinas com a vantagem adicional de se poder topar com o medalhista olímpico Tom Daley, nesta semana, foi anunciado que o público vai ter acesso ao Velódromo Olímpico e BMX. Isso inclui pista, rua, mountain bike e BMX. Pessoalmente, eu não consigo controlar meu entusiasmo. Isto traz de volta não apenas um fluxo maravilhoso de lembranças emocionantes de London2012 mas me enche de esperança  que a população menos privilegiada do Rio serão beneficiados com os locais extraordinários sendo construídas ali para os Jogos de 2016.

E o programa é realmente direcionado para um público amplo. Um artigo no Evening Standard, explica. “Estea planejado realizar uma média de 75 sessões para escolas e 135 para os clubes por mês a preços especiais, com esquemas direcionados para as mulheres, pessoas com mais de 50 anos e crianças,  iniciativas para descobrir talentos e Bikeability -programa de ciclos de proficiência.”

A partir de 31 de março £4 – R$16 nos dias de hoje
