The JuniorVelo database includes 611 velodromes in 83 countries. This page summarizes the ways you can view that information.
Google Earth – even better in some ways, but you must install the free application. PC and Mac versions are available, with Linux in beta test. It includes the whole earth, so this is a good way to see velodromes outside North America. Excellent for satellite imagery, fair for roads.
Yahoo! Maps – this is the best interface for most visitors. It works in most browsers and you can easily move and zoom the map to find velodromes. It only covers North America, however. Excellent for roads, but no satellite views.
Google Maps are somewhat comparable to the Yahoo! maps listed above, with the addition of full-earth coverage and optional satellite views. Another way to see velodromes in Europe and Australia. Click to go to a Google map with Junior Velo location data.
Velodrome Locator – this is my original “written by hand” locator. It doesn’t have the fancy features of the others, but it doesn’t require any special browser features. It’s another North America-only map, and will not be automatically updated like the other two.
If you know the location of a missing velodrome, please leave the location, name, and web address in a comment (or as much as you know). I believe that I have every active velodrome in the USA, but only a handful in Australia and Canada, and about one each in England, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Finland, and Argentina. There are many more velodromes in the world, but I need their exact locations before I can add them to the maps.
