Colorado Mesa University’s state-of-the-art cycling center was named the Chamberlin Cycling Center in recognition of the generous support the center has received from local architect Ed Chamberlin on Aug. 13.
In addition to announcing the new name, CMU unveiled a plaque recognizing those who had contributed to the “Become a CMU Cycling Founder” campaign recently conducted by the CMU Foundation. More than $100,000 was raised during that campaign, said Peggy Lamm, CMU vice president of development.
“We are thrilled with the way the local cycling community has continued to support CMU’s cycling team not only by donating dollars but also be giving their time and expertise,” Lamm said.
The Chamberlin Cycling Center opened in January as part of the renovation and expansion of the Maverick Pavilion. The 1,000-square-foot facility features 12 permanent training stations connected to computer monitors and two large LCD monitors for virtual cycling programs. It is used by both the CMU cycling team members and community cyclists.
