Boulder Velodrome grand opening December 1

The long awaited Boulder Colorado Velodrome plans a grand opening party and open house on Sunday, November 30th, 2008. This new velodrome is located in a former warehouse building at 3550 Frontier Avenue, near where Pearl Street crosses Foothills Highway (Hwy 157).

Via Ultra Rob.

While we’re in Boulder, let’s also visit Community Cycles, a group of bicycle enthusiasts whose mission is to educate and advocate for the safe use of bicycles as an affordable, viable and sustainable means of transportation and personal enjoyment. The Boulder Daily Comrade just posted a nice Community Spotlight on them. Community Cycles is located conveniently on the Goose Creek bike path and (literally) just across the tracks from the Boulder Velodrome.

Elsewhere, I’ve been busy posting stuff to Commute By Bike…

Have a wonderful weekend, all.

    This is hilarious that the paper there (the Daily Camera) is being called "The Daily Comrade." Ha!

    I lived in Boulder for 24 years and saw that area go from junkyard to nice park. Now there will be a velodrome in it – that's great! That is at the opposite end of town from the stores and so on, so it will attract people to a more empty area, which will be good.
