November 12, 2011 (Hamilton, ON) – Dear Members of the Canadian cycling community, The Hamilton Velodrome Campaign Cabinet was formed in October 2011 to help build support from the business and cycling community and to raise private funds to contribute to the cost of constructing a permanent, world-class indoor velodrome as part of the 2015 Pan Am Games.
