Cyclists seek all-weather velodrome

    Three members of the burgeoning Portland bicycle racing scene have launched an effort to build an indoor track racing facility.

    They plan to gather $1,000 pledges from 100 people, then solicit the city, businesses and others for support to replace the aging Alpenrose Velodrome in Southwest Portland.

    The 39-year-old outdoor facility at Alpenrose Dairy, which requires patches of paint and cement multiple times a year, literally is crumbling and probably won’t last beyond another decade, the trio said. They also fear that the dairy could someday be sold to developers, leaving them without a venue.
