Taking Velodrome Idea for a Spin in Des Plaines

A Des Plaines Journal article reported that an area bike riding association and other local cyclists brought the idea of velodrome to Des Plaines Mayor Marty Moylan. The mayor is a bike rider himself and now three sites are under consideration for the development of a multi-million dollar privately developed velodrome. Only 19 velodromes are in operation in the U.S.

Active Trans just posted recently about a new velodrome effort in Chicago and will be keeping an eye on both of these projects.

Chicagoland is home to more than 30 local bike racing teams. Learn more on our bike racing section www.activetrans.org/racing.
