Utah Velodrome update - Tour de 'Drome

Plans for a velodrome in the Ogden area are still moving forward.  There is now a charity ride to raise money for the future velodrome. 

The Tour de 'Drome is a benefit Bike Tour with proceeds going to the future Velodrome to be built as part of the Field House in Ogden, UT. Participants can choose routes from 28 to 105 miles AND we are also going to have a “Fun Ride” for the younger kids that still want to participate.

There are three routes, 28, 61, and 104 mile routes.  The ride will start on Saturday, May 1 at 9:00 from the Ogden Rodeo Grounds at 668 17th Street - where the historic velodrome once stood.   The $50 registration fee ($7.50 for the kids fun ride) will go towards the velodrome construction.  Your printed registration form will also allow you to ride the Frontrunner train from SLC to Ogden for no additional fee.

Further information, and registration can be found at the website, http://www.tourdedrome.com/
