November 07, 2011 (Edmonton, AB) – We have a chance to have an indoor cycling track included in a new Rec Centre proposed in Edmonton. Having a track at this proposed high-profile facility means cycling is more in the public eye, more visible, and more respected by regular Albertans. That helps ALL cyclists, whether you BMX, mountain bike, tour, commute, road race, or just love bikes.
Please ask anyone who supports cycling to send the City of Edmonton a very short online question form so they hear from cyclists. Find the survey HERE.
Question 4 is the important one.
They can check “I support this concept with the following suggestions________” and fill the blank with something like “Yes it is important to include a year-round cycling track”.
We try NOT to use the “V word” (velodrome). It is easier for the public to understand and support a “TRACK”.
Non-residents can help – fill out Question 1: Other_______ and write something like: “I live in (Calgary or Grande Prairie or _____) and want to come to Edmonton to use a cycling track. This will help the city will see the value! Thank you!
Please share on facebook HERE so you and your friends are in the loop.
P.S.: If you are into TRIATHLON, think of the potential: The centre that could have a cycling track is next to the Coronation POOL, and the Groat RUNNING trail to the River Valley – NEED I SAY MORE?
And… WINTER TRAINING!
