November 10, 2009 (London, ON) – The Forest City Velodrome, Ontario Cycling Association, and Ontario Trillium Foundation are looking for the next Canadian Olympian in cycling. If you are new to cycling or you’re an athlete in another sport (athletics, running, hockey, soccer, volleyball) and you would like to give track cycling a try, here’s your chance to come to the Forest City Velodrome in London, ON to find out what cycling has to offer.
We are looking for boys and girls, 14-16 years old to participate in our youth cycling program, on Saturday afternoon at 2pm. The introduction is part of our very successful Velo-Kids program, that has produced 9 Gold medals for Team Ontario at the Canadian Track Cycling Championships in four short years.
Every Saturday afternoon from November 14th to March 6 the FCV will conduct a 1-hour introduction to the velodrome, and the cool thing is that the introduction is “FREE” and includes the use of a bike.
Interested athletes need to register: ForestCityVelodrome@live.com. Good luck to all future Olympians.
