Velodrome Coming to D.C. in 2012
From the DCist:
According to David Butterworth, president of Pennsylvania-based Major League Cycling, his group is about two weeks away from finalizing the lease for a 1.5-acre parcel of land where the velodrome would go. The velodrome’s estimated cost would be $300,000 for the first year, dropping to roughly half of that in the years thereafter. Butterworth said that a number of people have stepped up to cover expenses, but he expects to start a fundraising campaign and set up a membership program.
