Check Out This Vintage Footage of Bicycle Racing at the Coney Island Velodrome Circa 1930

This vintage home movie, uploaded to YouTube by David W. Haas, M.D., shows the bicycle races at the famous Coney Island Velodrome around 1930. The film was captured by Haas' grandfather, a bicycle race fan.

According to my mom, my grandfather loved going to see bicycle races in New York City, especially Italian racers. This home movie shows bicycle racing at the Coney Island Velodrome in Brooklyn NY, circa 1930. The movie was filmed by my grandfather, William Whitman, Sr., and the music is by my daughter, Anna Haas. Please share widely.
