This kinf of bicycle velodrome is meant to be built studio in Hainan, China. It should be "just" a cycle-hire shop but Dutch studio NL Architects thought it would be fun to put a velodrome on the roof.


The curved rooftop track of the Bicycle Club will overhang the glazed exterior walls to shade a shop and cafe on the ground floor.


Once they’ve hired a bike, customers will be able to take it straight up to the track via central staircases, which will double-up as seating areas for spectators.
