The Portland Velodrome Committee was formed to address the long term
sustainability of the current track at Alpenrose Dairy and to explore
the possibility of building an indoor facility for year round training

The committee is moving forward with fundraising for a portable wooden meter track. The length and geometry will allow for it to be housed in a year round venue. Discussions are underway with architects concerning costs, materials and design. The initial goal is to raise $500,000 for track construction. At the same time plans are being made to find an affordable means to allow year round training.
Our goal is to use the combined resources of the greater Portland racing community, business and government to provide track racing facilities that showcase Portland as the premier cycling city in the United States. All donations of money, time and resources are welcome. Please visit the donate or contact section to become part of the team.
