World-class cycling velodrome nears opening in Detroit

World-class cycling velodrome nears opening in Detroit

 

Detroit Free Press - Situated at 601 Mack Ave. in Midtown, in the city's Tolan Playfield park, the velodrome is inside a large white air dome that rises 60 feet off the ground and is visible from I-75. Ten laps roughly equal a mile on the 166-meter wooden banked track, which can only be used by purpose-built track bikes.

 

Only two U.S. cities have a specially designed sports venue for indoor bicycle-racing.

 

Next month, Detroit becomes the third.

 

The Lexus Velodrome is scheduled to debut Dec. 9 with a preview race around the track, which is called a velodrome. Regular public use of the venue will begin in mid January, including free fitness and training programs for youths.

 

Organizers' goals include forming the nation's largest minority cycling team and developing Olympic-caliber cyclists.

Situated at 601 Mack Ave. in Midtown, in the city's Tolan Playfield park, the velodrome is inside a large white air dome that rises 60 feet off the ground and is visible from I-75.
