Caboolture Velodrome

Caboolture Velodrome is located at the Centenary Lakes Sporting Complex (also known as Caboolture Sports Complex or Centenary Lakes Park). The sports complex is located on Morayfield Road, Caboolture.

Caboolture Velodrome was opened by Des Frawley MP on 11 January 1975 after five years of work by the Caboolture Cycling Club.

Caboolture Sports Complex is listed on the sign at the front of the complex as the home of the Sunshine Coast Cycling Club. The Moreton Bay Cycling Club web site advises that they manage Caboolture Velodrome in accordance with the requirements of Moreton Bay Regional Council. Wolves Bike Den (a bike shop in Caboolture) also appear to be regular track users.

Caboolture Velodrome is an outdoor concrete track. According to Wikipedia, Caboolture Velodrome is 350 metres in length, but it does not list a banking angle.

With no one using the track, I took the opportunity to measure the velodrome banking angle. My phone angle metre app measured it as 9 degrees on the straight and 20 degrees on the banking. The measure was taken at the blue stayers line in the middle of the track at both locations.

Caboolture Velodrome appears to be used as a stormwater detention basin during heavy rain.
