USA Cycling has been considering new headquarters after learning that its current building, which it shares with other Olympic sports, will be torn down by the US Olympic Committee.
Although the national governing body had been looking at sites across the country, its choices appear to have narrowed to two. According to Colorado Springs' The Gazette, USA Cycling Communications Coordinator Andy Lee is deciding between staying in Colorado Springs or moving to Ogden, Utah. "Because of some things that are in play, we can't discuss it yet. Within the next day or two, that could change. There are still some things that need to be finalized before we can make any comments. We're getting pretty close."
USA Cycling has been in Colorado Springs since 1980 and earlier this week, the Colorado Springs Business Journal reported the organization was deeded at a cost of US$0 a transfer of a 1.91 acre parcel of land by NorWood Development. The address of the parcel, which features a two-story building, is 5935 Delmonico Drive.
The Gazette reported the donor's motives. "We knew they were being sought after by other communities. We thought preserving them in Colorado Springs was really important for the community. We had a facility that worked for them and it worked for us, so we were able to make that happen."
