a velodrome in Eugene.
Today was another great day for cycling in Salem. On Tuesday we made solid progress in fixing an outdated law, and today the velodrome bill (S.B. 926) — which seeks $3.5 million of State Lottery funds to build velodromes — gained not just valuable political support, it also gained one more track.
Sen. Floyd Prozanski (D) showed up to the hearing with an amendment to the bill that calls for a third velodrome to be built in the Eugene area.
He told members of the Senate Committee on Environment and Natural Resources (of which he’s also a member), that cycling has, “mushroomed beyond what people may realize.”
