H+H states that kids"... will not be allowed anywhere near the expensive and hard to maintain professional track". I suggest that a one hour trip to London, Ontario to visit the Forest City Velodrome (as should the mayor and councillors from Hamilton. There he would see the rows of engaged spectators, the elite level competition and the great kids' programme which has already produced national team and international athletes. The wonderful thing about a velodrome is that it provides a real venue where beginners can be introduced to cycling competition in a safe and controlled environment. Most competitive cycling activities take place on roads or out on the trails. Imagine swimming programmes held on a river or lake, or hockey development without the large number of arenas.
H+H states that he is open-minded. A visit to the Forest City Velodrome will go a long way towards him modifying his opinion.
