Cooper City FL en Glasgow Scotland UK 2014 Games Bring Inline Skating and Cycling Velodrome <p>As part of the Commonwealth Games in 2014, Glasgow, Scotland, UK will be getting an indoor cycling velodrome which will also house an &quot;inline skating facility.&quot; I wondered if that might be a banked track within the velodrome like they have in Florida and Colorado (outdoor tracks, both), or if it will be just some area to skate in while cyclists fly by on a wooden track. That's not so bad! I wondered if there's any chance inline skating will be included as a demonstration sport, but the list of sports, while including netball, fails to include skating as far as I could tell.</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Locations</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Brian Piccolo Park Velodrome</span> <div class="street-address"> 9501 Sheridan Street </div> <span class="locality">Cooper City</span>, <span class="region">Florida</span> <span class="postal-code">33024</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="26.035056">26° 2' 6.2016" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-80.269031">80° 16' 8.5116" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href=";csz=Cooper+City%2C+FL&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
