Ed Rudolph Velodrome

The Ed Rudolph Velodrome is an amazing place. Run by the Northbrook Park District, it’s open to the public, so you can watch races or have the thrill of spinning around the smooth, gently banked track yourself - on any kind of bicycle. As Chicagoland’s only velodrome, this can be a busy place with events, activities and races almost every evening throughout the season. It’s less busy during the daytime. Check out this great track, but watch out…you might get hooked! FOOD AND DRINK Concessions are sold during events. Otherwise, vending machines provide drinks. ACCESS Take Metra’s Milwaukee District North Line to Northbrook and go five blocks east along Walters Avenue. At Orchard Lane, go south three blocks to Meadowhill Park. Enter the track from the north side of the velodrome. By car, exit Interstate 94 northbound at Willow Road and drive about one mile west to Waukegan Road. Turn right and drive about one mile north to Maple Avenue. Turn left, drive a short distance to Meadowhill Park and follow the signs for the velodrome to the left.
