Lake Sullivan Sports Complex

lake sullivanIn a unique management partnership with the City of Indianapolis, Marian University became the operator of the Lake Sullivan Sports Complex, home of the Major Taylor Velodrome, in April of 2011. With support from Indianapolis mayor Greg Ballard and the Indianapolis City County Council, the University is leading the effort to begin a new era for this amazing venue.

Now known as the Indy Cycloplex, the park is a unique property: a collection of first-class facilities in multiple cycling disciplines and is home to races, clinics, and other events in all five cycling disciplines: road, cyclocross, BMX, mountain bike, and track, as well as community events.

The Major Taylor Velodrome has been the home of the Marian University Cycling Team since 1992, and the Knights are consistently one of the top collegiate cycling programs in the country, owning 32 USA Cycling collegiate national team championships in four disciplines and many individual national titles.

Major Taylor VelodromeThe Indy Cycloplex is positioned to be a destination for regular regional and national caliber cycling competitions and events, and many opportunities exist to promote health and fitness to residents of all ages, as well as create a nationally-recognized cycling facility that can host road, cyclocross, BMX, and track cycling events. The Major Taylor Velodrome is one of less than thirty velodromes in the United States and has hosted many international and national events over the years. Locally, the Cycloplex acts as a hub for recreational cycling. It is easily accessible by bike to Downtown Indianapolis via off-street bike paths or on-street bike lanes.
