Velodrome opening moved to October

By Beth Potter August 15, 2012
ERIE - First, the good news: the Boulder Valley Velodrome will have a new, 4,800-square-foot bike storage building mostly below ground in the infield of its new track in Erie.

Now the bad news - adding a new building to the mix means the 250-meter outdoor cycling track now is slated to open in October rather than by the end of summer as previously hoped, according to Frank Banta who is developing the track with Doug Emerson, owner of University Bicycles in Boulder.

The track and its corresponding clubhouse and parking lot is being built on four acres at the northwest corner of Bonnell Avenue and County Line Road just south of Erie Community Park and the Erie Community Center and west of the Coal Creek Commons retail center. Close to 10 cycling clubs have signed up to pay to ride the track so far, Banta said.
