A Velodrome doesn't have to be derelict after. There's a Velodrome in Forest that does well for itself. Also "Fixed Gear" culture is huge in Toronto. While anyone who follows track cycling will tell you there's a vast difference between hipsters bombing around town and the elite athlete's that are found on the velodrome at the world stage there is definitely a growing interest in the sport. Hamilton could get creative and promote ourselves as using the facility to cater to the growing cyclist demographic. If there's a GO stop at Liuna its that much easier for cyclists from anywhere in the GTA to get here...
