I wanted to drop you a note about a bill I hope you will support – HF 2700 and SF 2980. The state currently operates a bicycle racing velodrome at the National Sports Center in Blaine (one of only 26 in the US). This facility, unfortunately, will come to the end of its life cycle after 2019 after 30 years of use. We need your support to continue cycling in Minnesota. In the last 30 years, we have:
Continuing support of cycling with a new indoor facility will raise our standing in the international cycling community and will allow for year-round racing, providing a venue for all levels of athletes to train and compete during our long winters.
SF 2980 and HF 2700 seek a modest appropriation that will support creating a NEW velodrome that can be used by the thousands of Minnesotans that participate in competitive cycling events in our state. I would appreciate your support to continue the state’s commitment to our strong cycling history.
