There’s one attraction in Paignton that should be top of the list for anyone with a love of cycling, Torbay Velopark. The closed road circuit is 1.5km long and opens every day of the week, and it’s the perfect place for cyclists of all abilities to enjoy some time in the saddle.
You’ll find the track at Clennon Valley, and it welcomes visitors and residents of all ages who are keen to spend some time cycling without worrying about traffic or following a route. The impressive quality of the circuit has seen it become one of the region’s most popular sporting facilities since it opened during the summer of 2014, and it offers three distances to choose from.
You can hire a bike and a helmet when you get there for just £4, and baby trailers can be provided. Don’t worry if you don’t feel like being speedy as there are slow and fast lanes to help cyclists relax at their own pace while they enjoy the track. Each session is one hour long and the cost starts at just £2 per adult for one session – children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
