Indoor Velodrome for Track Cycling?

Hi -
I'm moving to Zurich early next year. I'm wondering if there is an Indoor Velodrome for Track Cycling/training? I see there is an outdoor one and I think an indoor one in Oerlikon, however, it doesn't list track training times, costs, etc.

Anyone here use the Velodromes? Ideally I'd go to the indoor one for winter cycling.

Thanks in advance

The velodrome in Grenchen may be of interest to you.

Thanks but unfortunately that's too far from Zurich to be used on a 2-3x/week basis

There is an outdoor one in the Zurich area. I don't know it specifically, but this is from Google.

Live in or closer to Grenchen then. If you're serious enough to need to use the track 2 or 3 times a week, then it's worth looking at organising your life around this. Plenty of people do this. Any case, this may be your only option.

Unfortunately the indoor track at Oerlikon (Hallenstadion) is the only indoor track in Zurich that I'm aware of. It is not a permanent track and the stadium is used for other type of events and shows. I don't think it is ever open to the general public for daily training purposes.


Sadly i think your best bet (other than moving to a place like Grenchen) would be the outdoor track which is just across the road or even better to get an IDT (in door trainer).
