CLEVELAND, Ohio -- After about five years of planning, the nonprofit Cleveland Velodrome cycling track is scheduled to open in June in the city's North Broadway neighborhood.
Groudbreaking is planned for Tuesday on 8.4 acres at Broadway and Pershing Avenue, the former home of St. Michael Hospital. The bicycle track is scheduled to open June 16.
"It is a great way to get kids into cycling," said Brett David, board president of Fast Track Cycling, which is running the velodrome. "It is safer than driving on some of these roads, battling cars."
