Spring opening slated for Boardman Bikes performance centre

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.
