and the second indoor venue in the US wonít be for the Boston Olympics. The velodrome is slated to be in downtown Detroit. Detroitís bike culture has exploded in recent years with events like Slow Roll and Critical mass attracting thousands of riders.
So, it is time for an indoor velodrome, so we can race year round. In the tradition of Europe, it will be multi functional with infield seating and of course a liquor license. Additional amenities include a BMX park, and a walking track. Like the nearby IVBP, itís going to have a strong youth program (free usage for youth). All of this can help it be a real asset to the community and not just a place where people like us can race on weekends.
How cool would that be?
