This looks like being a very exciting and
challenging year for the club and facility.
The Dundee City Council and SportScotland
have just announced that funding is in place
to upgrade the facility. This will include
resurfacing of the track, a permanent fence,
replacing the much loved beech hedge and
lighting. The work is due to commence shortly
and will be completed before the start of the
The club has worked long and hard with Scottish
Cycling to secure the future of the track, so it's
now up to the cycling community far and wide to
make use of the unique opportunities offered at
Caird Park. A charity, Caird Park Velodrome (SCIO)
has already been set up and this organisation will
look to take on a lease to run the facility. An Awards
for All grant has already been secured and this will
be used to purchase more track bikes to run
alongside the existing Discovery JCC equipment.
Once dates are finalised for the works, the
calendar will be looked at to set up, introductory
track sessions for those who wish to broaden
their experience. These have proved very
popular and successful in the past. Anyone,
group, club, coach or individual who wishes
to make use of the facility should contact
Martin Harris by email firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
We would like to thank all those who have
supported the events in the past and look
forward to welcoming you and many others
to the micro climate in Dundee!
