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 helps ALL cyclists, it raises the stakes in Canada.
Please ask anyone who supports cycling to send the City of Edmonton a very short online question form so they hear from cyclists: FEEDBACK
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 (Quebec or Vancouver or _____) and want to come to Edmonton to use a cycling track."
And that's ammo for YOU - you can then say "Edmonton has one, OUR CITY deserves one too!" - good politics!
Please shareon FACEBOOK so you and your friends are in the loop.
P.S.: If you have friends who are into TRIATHLON, think of the potential: The centre that could have a cycling track is next to the Coronation POOL, and the Groat ITU course RUNNING trail to the River Valley - NEED I SAY MORE?
And... WINTER TRAINING!
This will help the city will see the value! Thank you!
