†Membership in the Colorado Velodrome Association

The CVA has the following membership categories for the 2010 season.

CVA membership fees have been simplified to one fee that covers both membership and track usage fees. For instance, most senior riders will pay $200 for the year, which includes both CVA membership and the annual track usage fee paid to the USOC. Last year's fees were $60 for CVA membership plus $100 for the track usage fee for a total cost of $160. Both membership and entry fees for 2010 have been updated to account for increased costs to run the velodrome and keep the CVA in the black as CVA membership and entry fees charged over the last four years haven't covered the CVA's basic costs for the season (officials, insurance, permit fees, prize list, etc.).

Please note that, in order to ride on the velodrome, you will also need a USACycling license. You may find information on this at the USACycling.org website.
