Lee Valley VeloPark is a cycling centre on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, East London. It is owned and managed by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, and it was opened to the public in March 2014. The facility was one of the permanent venues for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The MTB routes are plentiful and developing. you have to remember that this is an urban centre, much like redbridge however there are some stark differences. LVVP offers a wide range of runs. from beginner friendly twisty, bermy trails, to small rock gardens, drops and technical decents. The red runs hold a fair challenge and the blacks vary from short technical A lines to quite technical drops and short decents. WHat makes it more challenging is the abundance of rocks (mostly rubble and hardcore) that could made a fall painful.


As a skills development centre close to the city it is good, but it is not an expansive trail experience to rival Swinley or Bedgebury, however it is  step us from other "urban" facilities in the area.
