FCV + Domestique Cafe team up.... Coffee fundraiser!!!
10.19.2014

The Forest City Velodrome and The Domestique Café in Dundas have partnered to offer coffee drinkers 5 Premium Blend Colombian Premium coffees.

Dark Roast * Medium & Light Blends * Decaf * Espresso

Pick your coffee up from the infield of the FCV from now until Christmas.

Your order will be delivered by mid November.

All proceeds from the coffee sales go to support the FCV Youth programs. The FCV works hard to bring the sport cycling to as many children as possible and to provide subsidies and economic support for disadvantaged children wherever possible.

ˇ All youth learn to ride sessions.

ˇ Properly sized bikes, including road bikes, are routinely supplied to children.

ˇ Youth memberships are subsidized by the FCV.

ˇ The FCV school program, where compu-bikes are brought into schools and grade 5-8 students "race" one another to introduce them to cycling and encourage them to come to a learn to ride session, is offered free to any school in the Thames Valley District.

All monies raised will go to directly benefit the kids at the FCV. It is hoped that through fund raising events such as this, we can expand the benefits to the children, especially to economically disadvantaged youths, increasing the fleet of youth-sized bikes, and supplying discounted pedals and shoes to new riders. The FCV and the kids thank you very much for your support!
