Avantidrome Scoops Another Award
The Avantidrome in Cambridge has won another award, this time aimed at its community involvement.
It was named the winner for the Community Facility category for the NZ Transport Agency's annual Favourite Places to Ride competition.
The competition received almost 10,000 nominations across the four categories - Nga Haerenga – NZ Cycle Trail, Off-Road or Adventure Ride, Urban Ride or Commute and Community Facility.
The community facility category included velodromes, Bikes in Schools tracks, pump tracks and BMX parks. Kids Bike Taupo was awarded second place in the category followed by the Taranaki Velodrome and Bike Park.
Marketing and communications co-ordinator Andrea Woodford said the award was an exciting notch in the belt of the charitable trust which runs the facility.
"It's really, really neat because cycling at the Avantidrome isn't just for the elites, in fact they only make up for about 18 per cent of its use," she said.
