Wind Del Park - Racing Velodrome Resurfacing project
Located 30 Km south of Paris in Windham Centre Ontario, the Wind Del cycling Velodrome is the only one of its kind in Ontario. This track was constructed almost 30 years ago by a dedicated team of volunteers. It has been the training location for many of Canada's top racing cyclists as well as host to numerous Ontario Cycling Association events.
Although the track base is in good condition, the asphalt needs to be resurfaced. This project is estimated to cost up to $100,000.00 dollars. Because of this, high-speed cycling events must be held outside the province, hours away, and costing thousands more to host an event.
The ONTARIO CYCLING ASSOCIATION and the HUMAN POWERED TRANSPORTATION ASSOCIATION are partnering with other cycling groups in the province to raise funds to resurface this track.
We need your help to save this track from destruction and bring our Canadian racers back home to train and Race.
