Thanks for a Great 2013 Season!

Thank you to all of you that visited or rode at the Cleveland Velodrome in 2013!  Also, thanks to our core group of volunteers and instructors, we exceeded all of our goals and had a great season with over 600 unique riders, 400 Track 101 participants, over 20 days of exciting racing, a community block party, Boys & Girls Club youth programming and much, much more.

As you may know, our programming is free for kids aged 18 and under – and our Track 101 class is free for adults.  As such, we rely on donations and the sale of season passes to support our operations.  Please consider supporting Fast Track Cycling and the Cleveland Velodrome.  Here is how you can help!

Donations – No amount is too small or too large – $25/$50/$100 or more are all appreciated and needed.  As a non-profit 501c3, your donation is tax deductible and can be made online at – http://clevelandvelodrome.org/become-a-supporter/

2014 Season Passes – With the holidays approaching, we are happy to announce that 2014 Season Passes are now available for purchase on line.  They make a great gift and are reasonably priced at $100 for students and $200 for individuals.  New for 2014, we also offer discounts for families or groups which are available on-line here.  http://clevelandvelodrome.org/join-the-track/

2013 Summer/Fall Friday Night Race Series

Wow!  Friday was a super night with some new riders reaching the podium!!  Results and series standings will be posted soon. This Friday and Saturday are the final two rounds – #5 and #6.  For the series, there is over $1,500 of cash awards up for grabs.

Once change, Saturday’s final round will start at 4pm and go to 6pm – not 11am to 1pm as previously stated.  This change is being done to accommodate MWCCC Regional TT races (hosted by Case Cycling Team) which start at 9am and go to 2pm.  The TTs are open to collegiate and non-collegiates.  This change also allows us to have a proper series awards party – King and Queen of the track awards on are on the line!  Sorry for any confusion.

 

2013 Junior Track Nationals

We are very proud of our five Junior athletes (aged 18 and under) who competed last week at Valley Preferred Cycling Center at the USA Cycling Junior Track Nationals near Philadelphia.  There were many great moments and as well as top finishes by Tyler Miranda, Kennedy Adams, Samantha Miranda, Wes Flickenger and Abbey Smich (youngest to oldest).  Congratulations to all!  If you know of any young cyclists that would like to join us next year, please email info@clevelandvelodrome.org to get involved.

Group Events

Looking for a new, exciting and super fun idea for a group event on the weekends?  Try the Cleveland Velodrome!!

Our very popular learn to ride program – the 90 minute Track 101 class - is free and open to the public.  This includes free bike rental (we have 40 track bikes in all sizes), free coaching and free track time.  We max out at 15 people for the Track 101 classes.  If you have at least 10 people – we can make it a private class for your group.  Private classes (often followed by group riding) are still free, but donations are gladly accepted and encouraged.  We can provide food and beverages – for a small charge - or you can bring your own and use our gas grill.

Your group can either ride your bikes to the track, complete the 60 to 90 minute Learn to Ride class and then ride back home.  Our alternatively, drive to the track, do the 90 minute class and then use our grill and enjoy an icy cold beverage.  Thus far in 2013 we have hosted a local law firm, an amateur bike racing team, a recreational cycling club and a few kid’s birthday parties.  Lots of smiles and importantly no injuries.

If you are interested please email info@clevelandvelodrome.org to learn more or reserve your spot!  The dates for August and September are filling up fast!
