Venues

Three of the four cycling venues are located within the West Midlands region:

In addition, it was decided that the Lee Valley VeloPark in London, more than 100 miles away from Birmingham, would host the track cycling.[10][11] This caused a lot of backlash amongst residents in the West Midlands, and even resulted in a petition that was signed by 6,000 locals that urged for a new velodrome to be built in the West Midlands instead of using one in London.[12] Nonetheless, a new velodrome in the West Midlands was ruled out on grounds of cost.[13]

Qualification (parasport)

A total of 12 para-track cyclists (6 per gender) nominally qualify to compete at the Games.[14] They qualify as follows:

  • Athletes in the UCI Individual Tandem B – Track Para Rankings (for performances between 1 January 2021 and 18 April 2022).
  • Recipient of a CGF / UCI Bipartite Invitation.
