Construction of the new Boardman Bikes Performance Centre at The Valley in Evesham is now complete, and the Boardman Bikes team is ready to fit the building out and install a first-of-its-kind wind tunnel designed for cyclists.
The 18,000-sq ft complex is due to open in the spring, and for professional and amateur cyclists to optimise their aerodynamic performance. It is expected to be a draw for UK and international cyclists.
Worcestershire County Council Cabinet Member responsible for Economy and Infrastructure, Cllr Ken Pollock said: “Having the UK’s first cycling-specific wind tunnel at The Valley is great news for Worcestershire. We are very keen to promote cycling, both for recreation and commuting, and the company is a great stimulus for both. The new centre also proves that our county is Open for Business, and will undoubtedly put Evesham on the cycling map.”
There centre will also host a showcase bike shop, event space and café.
