Cycling programs to begin in January
After careful thought and consideration, the Town of Milton is postponing the opening event of the Mattamy National Cycling Centre and its cycling programs until after the TORONTO 2015 test events in January.
The Opening Day celebration, originally scheduled for November 29, will now take place on Family Day – Monday, February 16th. Cycling programs, originally scheduled for December, will begin on Tuesday, January 13.
“We know there are many enthusiastic cyclists eagerly waiting to ride the track and we apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause,” said Milton Mayor Gord Krantz. “But we look forward to celebrating with the community by offering a complete velodrome experience on Family Day.”
Although the cycling track itself is complete, other areas of the facility are currently in progress.
The Town of Milton will be reaching out to registrants who have signed on for sessions or joined as members, and will update its website and social media sites with specific program changes.

15th Annual OCA Cycling Celebration a Success
With a record setting attendance, the 2014 OCA Cycling Celebration was a great night full of awards, friends reminiscing, and great spirit. Held once again at the Cardinal Golf Club in Newmarket, over 201 guests gathered to show their support to those who excelled in 2014.
The night began with a general reception, that moved quickly into the dinner portion of the evening. The audience was welcomed by MC Brendan Arnold and OCA’s CEO Jim Crosscombe, followed by a brief, yet entertaining presentation by the Make-It-Happen group on how we can all help grow the sport in Ontario and that for $250, you can get permanent naming rights to a seat in the Milton Velodrome (http://make-it-happen.ca/)
