When I began cycling, I wasn't dreaming
of podiums and prizes from pretty girls in fancy
dresses. I didn't see any big trips to Belgium or France
in my future, either. But I was only a kid, and it was
just my bike; it wasn't 'cycling'
at that point.
There were no training plans, no researching the ideal diet,
no coordination of housing with bike routes.
that started as pure joy morphed into a means of
transportation, eventually evolving into a lifestyle.
For more than two
dozen years, cyclists of the midwest have been lucky
to enjoy a lifestyle that includes a
high quality outdoor track, reaching back into the past for a
taste of bicycle racing's youth. But perhaps more
fleeting than the vitality of youth,
the life of a wooden track surface left to the devices of a
Minnesota winter...well, let's just say
it's time for an indoor velodrome. The MN Cycling Center
will include a 200 meter indoor velodrome, along with many
other cycling amenities, providing fertile ground for the
cultivation of dreams for generations to come. For each
purchased, $20 goes to the Minnesota Cycling Center, and you
will receive numerous discounts from the jersey
sponsors, such as $10 off the regular rate for life at
