- Daily Camera covers the closing


Official statement from the president of the velodrome

After significant effort was expended to create a more positive outcome, it is with great regret that we announce the closing of Boulder Indoor Cycling, home to Boulder’s first velodrome, as well as CycleTykes, the area’s best kids’ cycling instructional program, effective at the end of April. Even so, efforts continue to try and find an alternative solution. We want to thank our customers, sponsors, employees, the citizens of Boulder and the local cycling community for the tremendous support we have received over the past 3½ years and we especially appreciate the opportunity we’ve had to increase awareness in so many different aspects of the cycling industry along the front range.

As a result of this decision, we will be liquidating most of our current inventory, including our rental fleet of track bicycles, bicycle components (wheels, tires, seats), T-shirts, etc. We are also planning to hold several special events in the coming week including our cycling Time Trials and one last evening of First Friday races on May 4th as a final thank-you. For more information on any of these activities please visit www.BoulderIndoorCycling.com or our Facebook page: (http://www.facebook.com/#!/BoulderIndoorCycling) , or call us at 303-CYCLING (303-292-5464) with any questions or concerns.

In light of the above statement the firm closing of today, April 29th, is no longer true

According to rumors from extremely good sources the Boulder Velodrome will be closing their doors firming after this Sunday. According to our sources, all employees were given notice yesterday, Friday April 27th that Sunday April 29th will be the last day of operation for the current owners of the facility. The current owners of the velodrome have not made a formal statement but the general manager has confirmed the rumor to be true. Obviously this has caught a lot of people off guard but in just 24 hours an enormous amount of support has been pouring out to the existing employees and plans are being worked out that will allow the velodrome to continue to operate under new ownership. Stay tuned to how this story develops

Remembering the Boulder Velodrome. Here is a list of stories we have reported on in the past.

Speculation

Ingrid, the title of your post is appropriate. Something else that is "no more than speculation" are your assumptions about the state of affairs surrounding BIC and the reasons for this decision. I suggest next time you actually speak to an owner before spreading rumors here or anywhere else.

Bruce I did not read any

Bruce I did not read any rumors in her post and highly respect her for putting her name on it. I cannot say the same for your post. Maybe if the owners gave people more than 2 days notice (total lack of respect for customers and employees, what ever the reason), were willing to talk to people who might want to buy the business, or bother to show up at the meeting this morning (which was just a bunch of people who love the track and want it to work out), you would not need to be posting on here like that.

My 2 cents. And yes I was there today to say good bye myself.
