On Sunday nearly 70 volunteers showed up for the annual Alpenrose Velodrome Clean-up Day. They painted the entire track and bleachers, patched cement on the track surface, and performed general maintenance.
The deteriorating track needs TLC every year before track season heats up.
Support for Sunday’s effort came from local bicycle component manufacturer Chris King Precision Components. Company founder Chris King flipped pancakes and served fresh coffee to volunteers. Lunch was provided by OBRA and Pizzicato.
With the track buffed into shape, stay tuned for track season! I have made a personal promise that this will finally be my year for getting out there.
