This article slipped by us last February on the “everything bicycles blog” talkingtreads.com. It’s basically a scraping of the Sac Bee article that we’ve covered here, but we thought we’d post it here as a thanks for the support.
Velodrome advocate Dean Alleger hopes to head up a non-profit with a view to developing proposals for the construction of the Sacramento area’s first dedicated cycling track destination. Alleger is a local racing enthusiast and bicycle mechanic who has been forced to commute to San Jose in order to practice and compete on a velodrome. His vision for a Sacramento track involves a public-private partnership with grass-roots support from area cyclists.
It should be noted that Sacramento has been home to several dedicated tracks in its history.
