The seven primary schools selected for the StreetVelodrome are Sextons Manor, Abbots Green, Hardwick, Ickworth Park, Lawshall ‘s All Saints, St Edmundsbury and Howard.

In exchange for the chance to ride on the StreetVelodrome, the schools have pledged to make cycling a priority in their school curriculum and find new ways to promote cycling in their communities.
