Needed: Statistics on Velodromes
I am in midst of creating a proposal to have a velodrome built in Grand Rapids, Michigan and some constructive criticism I recieved was that I have no statistical proof that velodromes help the community. Does anyone have any stats or numbers they have found? Perhaps how many Olympic athletes come from cities that have velodromes versus cities that do not. Or do bike shop see a rise in exitement about cycling or business after velodromes are built in the area? Thank you all in advance.
