Velodrome 105 E Diamond discussion.mp3
The National Velodrome needs a place to store materials for bike races and the Harmony Street building is a natural site. Where the material for the races is stored is not that significant but the races are.
The Western Chester County Chamber of Commerce has been involved in the Ice Cream Festival in the past. I made a comment at the March 28, 2011 City Council Meeting that a friend who is a Chamber member said the Western Chester County Chamber wants to have all hands on deck for the 4th of July events. Because, the "Coatesville Classic" bike races are developing into a very big possibly national event.
Although the events over the 4th of July may involve a large number of spectators the people involved in the race are some of same people that do the Philadelphia Bike race and I think it will go smoothly.
The 12 mile road racing cycling event will involve a number of other
municipalities. It's going to be a very big Fourth of July weekend in
Coatesville. It's still in the planning stages.
