Save Hurstville Velodrome

If there’s one thing you do today, I ask that it be signing this petition to help save the Velodrome at Hurstville in Sydney’s south.

In their words:

Hurstville Oval in Sydney’s South has played a significant roll in developing world champions for generations. From the Olympics to Roubaix, this suburban development ground has cultivated some of the finest talent to represent Australia on the world stage.

Decades of blood, sweat and tears have saturated the velodrome starting out as dreams on one day to representing Australia the next. Now, there is a serious threat whereby cashed up sporting codes want to muscle in and take control of the oval to the detriment of the velodrome.

Aside from it’s history, the velodrome is very much in use by athletes and the local community. Officials whinge that kids need to be more active, what could be better than a safe cycling environment?

As a cyclist and someone who grew up in the local community, I urge you to consider adding your voice to the others and help convince Hurstville Council that this facility be continued for current and future generations.
