Brunswick Cycling Club Pavilion

Brunswick Cycling Club PavilionProject overview

The Brunswick Cycling Pavilion and velodrome is located at Roberts Reserve, East Brunswick and hosts the Brunswick Cycling Club (BCC).

The BCC is a volunteer-run club with over 500 members. The club encourages all ages and abilities of competitive road and track cycling and has a large junior development program. In 2016 the BCC will be 100 years old.

In August 2011, a report on the condition of Brunswick Cycling Pavilion found that the pavilion was in poor condition with some wall cracking. A recommendation was made to undertake significant
remedial action.  The building was subsequently demolished in
December 2012.

This interim pavilion served the club until the construction of the new pavilion was completed. Members from the BCC and the general public continued to use the velodrome and small canteen. Council also installed portable toilets and shipping containers for temporary storage.
