Doncaster closed cycling circuit planned in participation drive

Should Doncaster Council identify funding partners the town could soon become the beneficiary of a 1km closed circuit cycling facility.

Having expressed an interest in submitting a bid for British Cycling cash, the proposed circuit would call The Dome home and will sit on land next to the existing car park.

Open to the general public, as well as cycling clubs, the facility is touted as a place to teach kids to cycle – habits that local councillors hope carry through to adulthood.

Councillor Bill Mordue, Doncaster’s cabinet member for culture, leisure and tourism told local news: “We are passionate about improving the facilities available for sport and recreation across Doncaster, including cycling which has massively grown in popularity over the last few years.

“We will push for the funding for this fantastic new circuit, and have already expressed our interest in submitting a bid to British Cycling as part of the UCI road racing world championships legacy fund, which will support cycling infrastructure projects across the country. Our partners and DCLT are fully behind the project and are helping us in our efforts to secure funding for the circuit.”
