May 6/11 13:59 pm - Edmonton Velodrome Proposal Needs YOUR Support
Posted by Editoress on 05/6/11
Edmonton could have the indoor velodrome soon if lots of cyclists show up and press for its inclusion in this new project! On May 16th at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm there is a "Public information session on the Coronation Rec Centre" at Edmonton's Central Lions Senior Centre.
Even if you are not a track rider, your support and ideas are important. This information session gives Edmonton (and the greater area) cyclists a chance to be a part of making Edmonton a top North American cycling destination. The Argyll Velodrome Association has been working with the City of Edmonton to provide a new indoor cycling track. The first stage of planning is underway with the velodrome as part of the Coronation Rec Centre. A quick summary of what has been occurring:
• Currently we are looking to have a track in a Recreational Centre setting
• The facility would be located in Coronation Park
• The creation of this facility would allow us to have world class level training and racing throughout the seasons
However, none of this can occur with out the help of the community. So now comes the point when we need Canada's cyclists (aka you!) to help this project along.
This session is a chance for you to give any ideas you have for the track, and for you to give input on ideas that have already arisen.
So please come support and invite any cycling/triathlete friends along. If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail. Please RSVP your attendance to James.firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you're far away, please email him your club's letter of support.
On behalf of the AVA project steering committee.
