Here's an opportunity to learn more about proposed Velodrome.

For what it is worth, I personally see several clear advantages for Hamilton:

  1. Multi-use facility means the Return on Investment is quite high compared to other Pan-Am investments since the facilities will be used often and by many.

  2. A velodrome will be accessible to kids from the community through the National Cycling Centre Hamilton which last year visited many Hamilton city schools with their stationary trainers to introduce our kids to the sport -- and recruited a number of new members.

  3. A facility at Mohawk would certainly benefit the college and strong post-secondary institutions have become increasingly important to our city and our future.

  4. A velodrome would help to rebrand our image from a place of idled steel-mills to a city of education, health and sports excellence.
