Wind Del Park

Windham Centre ON CAN

Wind Del Park - Racing Velodrome

Located 30 Km south of Paris in Windham Centre ON , the Wind Del cycling Velodrome is the only one of its kind in Ontario. This track was
constructed almost 30 years ago by a dedicated team of volunteers. It has been the training location for many of Canada's top racing cyclists
as well as host to numerous Ontario Cycling Association events.

Although the track base is in good condition the asphalt needs to be resurfaced. This project is estimated to cost up to 100,000.00 dollars.
Because of this , high speed cycling events must be held outside the province, hours away, and costing thousands more to host an event.

The ONTARIO CYCLING ASSOCIATION and the HUMAN POWERED TRANSPORTATION ASSOC. are partnering with other cycling groups in the province to raise funds to resurface this track. The HPTA  hopes to use the track to introduce high speed Human Powered Vehicle ( HPV ) race events to Ontario.

We need your help to save this track from destruction and bring our Canadian racers back home to train and Race.

There are two options for you to support this cause. The first is simply a tax deductible donation. There is no sponsorship rights associated with this
support, however, there will certainly be acknowledgement for these supporters. The second option involves a sponsorship / partnership.

Despite a 2 hour rain delay , good time was had by all. Some serious speeds and competition kept the spectators on the edge of their seats.
