2021 Pre-Season Work Day

DLV’s first workday of 2021 is scheduled for 9AM, Saturday March 20th. We need volunteers to help clean up the velodrome grounds in preparation for the 2021 season. Being outdoors everyone will have no problem being socially distanced and mask wearing is encouraged. The primary task will be:

  • Leaf removal
  • Debris cleanup
  • General cleaning

These represent a few of the primary things that need done so that we can take the next steps in opening the velodrome in 2021.

Note: State guidelines for Covid 19 safety are to be followed by all volunteers.

Please RSVP through our event page: https://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/event/2021-pre-season-velodrome-work-day/

Come join us if you can, we appreciate your help!!!!

February 2021 Update

The Dick Lane Velodrome is committed to promoting cycling in a safe and friendly environment. It was out of an abundance of caution for everyone’s health, state/local guidelines, and respect for the community that we temporarily shut down the Dick Lane Velodrome in 2020. We were all disappointed, but it was a necessary decision.

For 2021, we are working on a plan to reopen on a limited basis. The obvious challenge is COVID-19 safety.

Some insight into our racing plans for 2021:

We are discussing that when racing starts, it will be one night a week. We are planning on just Wednesday nights to begin the season. This allows us to ease into the season and ensure our COVID-19 guidelines are being implemented properly, allowing us to make any necessary changes before the next race day. We will re-evaluate adding race nights on a regular basis to decide if/when we can expand programming.

Status of our regular programs:

• Wednesday adult racing or organized training – in planning phase. Start date to be determined.
• YCL – on hold. Evaluating our ability to restart in 2021
• Certification Classes – on hold. Evaluating our ability to restart in 2021
• Tuesday Racing – on hold till further notice
• Pro races – on hold till further notice

As a 100% volunteer organization, we are doing our best to get things going while taking care of our personal and professional lives outside the velodrome. If anyone wants to help, please email [email protected]
