Thank you for making the NY Bike Jumble's first year such a success.
We have some exciting plans for the next cycling season, including another
Jumble and an exhibit about the Coney
The Coney Island
Velodrome was the last commercial bicycle racing track in New York, and hosted
some of cycling's most
grueling races. With your help, we will bring the Velodrome back to life with a
display of vintage bikes that
were raced on the Coney track,
as well as beautiful programs and posters that trumpeted the heroism of the
riders. The exhibit will be a tribute to New York's glorious cycling past,
stories that have long languished in an undeserved obscurity.
While the exhibit has a venue (the Old Stone House, site of the first Bike
Jumble), we need your
help. I am writing to you to ask for a small donation to ensure that the
exhibit becomes a reality. Your tax-deductible donation will go directly
towards the research, materials and construction of an exhibit that is truly
worthy of the Velodrome and New York's
flourishing bike culture.
